I was recently informed by a Trump supporter that I have a negative attitude,and am constantly complaining about alleged problems such as climate change. This person noted, that while he is not a scientist, arguments about the alleged goal warming are not a topic that every single scientist in the world accepts. I was urged to be more positive, and cease reporting gloomy news. I came across a story by Lars Ostenfeld, a Danish film maker who made a trip to the city of Churchill in northern Canada which is on Hudson Bay.
According to Mr. Ostenfeld, “This area is considered the polar bear capital of the world. Twelve years ago the place was white, this year it is different. In mid-November, no snow or sea ice, no ice, the land was green and brown, and the temperature was 2C. Usually, there are about a 1,000 polar bears, this year fewer than 500. In the last 30 years the surface temperature of Hudson Bay was -20C, this year it is 3C. The Arctic sea ice has shrunk to its lowest record in years.”
I guess an optimist attitude should be taken. At least there were SOME polar bears around!d
