Maybe it's the way my brain works, but raining polar bears makes no sense at all.... certainly in terms of a link between flying and polar bears. And the blood splatters make even less sense, apart from any shock value. A polar bear in the sea miles from anywhere because all the ice had melted, there's a link.

But I did learn a polar bear weighs the same as the amount of CO2 generated per pax on a shorthaul flight. Makes you wonder the animal mass equivalent of CO2 per pax if the same journey was done by car, coach, train, boat, whatever. 50 lits of petrol -> 110kg of CO2.... so all those cars travelling the motorways, autoroutes, autobahns, interstates, autostradas.....

Computer servers emit more CO2 then aircraft because they need continuous air conditioning. Every time we look at that video we are killing more polar bears then if we were flying.

Does this mean every time a plane takes off, a polar bear will fall out of the sky and smash a Cadillac? Thank God I drive a Chevy.

Thankfully they sum up their own stance in the organisation's own name. I guess people stupid enough to be taken in by this kind of sensationalist propaganda need constant reminding of how foolish their mission is...  

Incidentally yes, this was posted on here when it was first released, at least a year ago IIRC and the feedback from the general public was predominantly negative. It only shocked and upset children who didn't understand the message, whilst the majority of people saw straight through it and were angry at the needlessly gory portrayal.

Quoting ikramerica (Reply 8):
Polar Bears must like CO2, because their numbers are increasing...

Alas, that's not true.

At the 2009 meeting of the IUCN Polar Bear Specialist Group, scientists reported that of the 19 subpopulations* of polar bears:

8 are declining.
3 are stable.
1 is increasing.

By comparison, in 2005:

5 were declining.
5 were stable.
2 were increasing.

*Insufficient data to determine the fate of the other 7 populations

Results from long-term studies show:

Canada's Western Hudson Bay population: 22% decline since the early 1980s, directly related to earlier ice break-up on Hudson Bay.

Southern Beaufort Sea population along the northern coast of Alaska and western Canada: decline in cub survival rates and in the weight and skull size of adult males; similar observations made in Western Hudson Bay prior to its population drop.

Baffin Bay population, shared by Greenland and Canada: at risk from both significant sea ice loss and substantial over-harvesting.

Chukchi Sea population, shared by Russia and the United States: declining due to illegal harvest in Russia and one of the highest rates of sea ice loss in the Arctic.

Exactly my thoughts. Hardly good taste at all.

I do find it highly amusing that they put forward train travel as an alternative for flying yet if we add up the long term impacts of building railways etc, and, more importantly, generating the electricity needed, rail is actually considerably more expensive and releases more CO2...

I lived through Sept. 11 and have seen enough bodies falling from skyscrapers for the rest of my life. I can't believe the makers of this video didn't consider the similarities. Disgusting.

The city is Vancouver, BC. While we don't see extreme actions taken by PETA in Vancouver, this is what I'd expect to see coming out of Vancouver's 'green' community.

Huh. I must have failed math. What happened to the other 7? Hardly a true representation if they can't get enough data to monitor the other 7. How are we to believe they have enough data to properly report on the 12 they claim to know about?

Either way, there are some populations INCREASING, some DECLINING, and some stable. One of the increasing ones increased by a massive amount.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/comment/c...ert-barred-by-global-warmists.html

How can that be with so much CO2 out there? Could it be natural shifting of populations and climates, something that has happened forever, the same phenomenon that caused the currently shrinking Swiss glaciers to GROW in the 18th century, so much so that they pushed down into long established towns and destroyed them?

Why are some people so conceited to believe that everything that happens on earth is the result of the actions of mankind? Not only is that a hubris filled belief, but it's dangerous. It leads one to declare that "the world is as it should always be right at this moment (or when I was a child, and things were awesome), and we should do everything in our power to keep it exactly as it is now (or restore it to then)." And it leads people to expend all their resources and economic power in an effort to prevent something that isn't preventable, and restore something that isn't restorable.

I believe in recycling, cutting down on pollution (REAL pollution), and other efforts, but fighting CO2 in an effort to control mother nature is just tilting at windmills and calling them dragons. Some might believe in the impossible dream, but ultimately, it's foolish...
