Chuck: Just got off the phone with my co-supervisor from my Ph.D. who’s an Arctic ecologist and I mentioned the dead polar bears. He thought we might be onto something with the global warming angle. In any case, he recommended we get in touch with Ian Stirling to discuss our observations. It might be worthwhile to get his views on the topic.
My comment to the author:
I commend you for noting the two examples of climate denialism here:
(1) the complainant's idea that Dr. Monnett had a "a global warming agenda" (this counts as a valid smear on Fox News) and
(2) that other ridiculous concept of deniers that scientists have ideological reasons that motivate their research ("other reputable scientists with similar ideology").
What is clear from these two statements by the complainant is that he had an agenda and an ideology, but it is well known that those with "Republican brains" are among the most adept projectionists.
