    most animals adapt to their surroundings or die. I'm confused why leftists think that isn't science. just more evidence that science isn't their thingy.

    Which is why they will all soon evolve fins and swim away and save themselves.

    Thanks for the reliable....oh, wait, it's another bs source. DERP!

    I love the following.....

    It’s also been reported that 98% of the sea floor of the Pacific is covered with dead sea life.

    No shit. Dead stuff sinks. The living stuff is still floating around. LOL!

    Only 98%? After several hundred million years i would have assumed ALL of it was covered.

    At what point will we be able to walk from California to Hawaii, just stepping on the corpses of trillions of dead critters?

    If it's in the news, please show us some examples.

    I lived and worked in Key West Florida for three years in the late '60's. At the time, there were a number of streets, down near the Turtle Kraals, the bank we did business with and one of my favorite bars. Every time there was a full moon, the streets would flood a bit. If there was an exceptionally high tide, there would be six or eight inches of water in the streets.

    If you recall, cars used to rust out quite a lot at that time. To delay that eventuality, there was a service provided by the filling stations. It would probably be frowned on today and I'm sure it is no longer available. Service stations would have a lift outside. There they would lift your car and spray the used oil from oil changes to the entire undercarriage of your car. I had it done about once a month, usually before the abnormally high tides. It was unnecessary for the Harley I also owned at the time and would have been foolhardy. If I had to ride through salt water, I washed it off the same day.

    Over the decades, I have visited many, many times. Guess what? The same flooding, no more, no less. Key West is still there. Not as wonderful as it was in my day, but still there.

    You're a hoot! Really!

    DELINGPOLE: Polar Bears Are a Pest – Time to End Their ‘Threatened’ Status

    1 Mar 2017
    Earlier this week, as I’m sure you know, was International Polar Bear Day. Usually I celebrate by tossing a well-marinaded bear haunch onto the barbecue – note to novices: DO NOT eat the liver. It’s poisonous – but I couldn’t this year because of pesky global cooling, so instead, I sat indoors by the fire and drank a toast to the world’s exploding polar bear population which has now reached record highs of 30,000.

    30,000 polar bears is a lot. As someone else remarked (remind me where and I’ll link to it), when Al Gore was born the population was just 5,000. Even as recently as 2005 it was estimated at no more than 22,500.

    Those are some very quickly reproducing bears, to go from 5,000 to 22,500 in, what, 57 years. Were you helping them reproduce?

    Clearly mathematics isn't your strong point. Look up the bears reproductive rate and then calculate that based on the number of years. Get a 6th grader to help you.
