This blog will never run out of material! This weekend, The Union newspaper is running a front-page ad promoting a book titled “Polar Bears in the Hot Tub: Their Future and Ours” by Arthur Krugler. It informs us: “Predictions! True of False? Polar Bears could disappear in five years from 2008”! “Actually there are now 30,000 per census.”
“Polar Bears in the Hot Tub is an inquiry that asks different questions about global warming and the predicted hazards,” according to a summary at Google Books. “This book follows a different path of research to find answers to questions that no one is bothering to ask. Is climate change inevitable? Are we solving the wrong problem? Are polar bears languishing in warmer and warmer arctic waters? Maybe not.”
Considering that some of our most vocal local global warming doubters (AKA “those who reject mainstream climate science”) religiously subscribe to The Union, this might be a good match. Good luck with your book sales, sir!
