International Polar Bear Day. Good for Polar Bears is Good for the Planet.

Posted Feb. 27th, 2013 by Daniel J. Cox

Today’s the Day! Our friends at Polar Bears International and Frontiers North Adventures are celebrating International Polar Bear Day. I just got off a conference call with one of the world’s leading scientists Dr. Andrew Derocher from the University of Alberta. It was a tough call to sit in on. Andy, as we call him around the campfire, recently released a scientific paper on potential ideas for dealing with the predicted impending die-off of polar bears that is forecast to happen between now and 2050. His argument, for starting this conversation now, revolves around the emotions which subjects of this nature create when a catastrophic event is taking place. Once polar bears start down this gruesome path, he’s concerned rational decisions won’t be possible. Better to start planning before serious anxiety kicks in.

This subject is hard to believe but unfortunately it’s true. People who hide from this subject or worse yet, refute the science, are doing so at their own risk. Polar bears are just the tip of the iceberg, no pun intended unfortunately.

    So Frontiers North suggests no shower tonight. Ran it by my wife. Says if that’s the case, I’ll be sleeping with my Lab’s tonight. Haven’t slept with the Lab’s since I got home from Churchill…

      Bruce, Don’t want you in the dog house but we have to save the bears:) Besides, your dog would love it and labs are typically real comfy. All jokes aside, it is amazing how many americans are freaked if they don’t have two showers a day. We really see this at the Tundra Buggy Lodge. I’ve seen guests who are taking three showers a day. Now that I think of it, Maybe John Gunter is trying to get all potential guests primed for bear season by getting them into the one shower every two days frame of mind:) It’s a conspiracy if I’ve ever seen one. Thanks for stopping by.
