One chilly October afternoon, students from the University of Syracuse chapter of the Collegian’s for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT) distributed 200 global warming fact sheets on campus highlighting three cold hard truths about global warming:
1. It is not man-caused
2. It is not a threat
3. The Polar Bear population is not at risk
Seven students canvassed the campus, exposing the lies associated with the Green Movement, while Paulie the Polar Bear let students know that he is not endangered by any of their actions, that he actually enjoys the slightly warmer temperatures, and that he actually has plenty of ice-caps to play on. He gave them the following information-
On Placing polar bears on the U.S. Endangered Species List-
“To list a species that is currently in good health as an engendered species requires valid forecasts that its population would decline to levels that threaten its viability. In fact, the polar populations have been increasing rapidly in recent decades due to hunting restrictions. Assuming these restrictions remain, the most appropriate forecast is to assume that the upward trend would continue for a few years, and then level off.” – Dr. J. Scott Armstrong (Science Daily 2008)
A study done by Canada’s Department of Fisheries and Oceans found that “the possible impact of global warming appears to play a minor role in changes to Arctic sea ice.” They found that the primary cause of changes in sea ice was changes in wind patterns. When the sea is stormy or choppy it is difficult for sea ice to form.
The event which was held in front of Syracuse’s landmark building, The Hall of Languages was an ideal venue for raising awareness. The group will be holding similar events throughout the year.
