Did you hear about the potential tragedy facing polar bear penises? Pollution may be weakening the bone inside the polar bear’s penis. Researchers in Denmark said Organohalogens might be weakening the bone.
Organohalogens contain at least one halogen such as fluorine or chlorine, and are used as solvents and pesticides, as well as in the making of dyes and drugs. They were in paints and rubber goods until 2001.
More regulations! More costs! !ore restrictions! This is a big plus for the alarmists.
Remember when Al Gore showed photos of two polar bears on an ice floe as if they were about to drown? He didn’t bother mentioning they can swim 60 miles and the photo was taken by a student in August.
The photo shows two polar bears on a melting ice floe in the Beaufort Sea, north of Barrow, Alaska.
“Their habitat is melting… beautiful animals, literally being forced off the planet,” Mr. Gore said, with the photo on the screen behind him. “They’re in trouble, got nowhere else to go.”
The bears weren’t in trouble at all and the picture was rejected by at least one Canadian newspaper.
Gore paid for the picture.
The photo was published on the front pages of The New York Times and Boston Globe, The Times and The Guardian in the U.K., the International Herald Tribune, and various others in Canada and around the world.
The study in Denmark will be misused just as the photo was.
