We were all convinced that polar bears were being killed off by global warming. We were manipulated by the photos of polar bears appearing to be stranded on small ice flows surrounded by water. But it was a lie.
Scientist Dag Vongraven of Polar Bear Specialist Group now admits that he lied about polar bear populations. Oh, that’s not the term he would use. But he and his organization represented very incomplete data as authoritative.
Now when he has to admit it, he bravely buries his correction in a footnote. Why didn’t he issue a press release to announce his change in the data? He asked a critic, Dr. Crockford, to announce it.
