    Simple solution. Do a poll, "do you believe climate change is real yes / no". All those who vote no "win" a trip to see starving polar bears up close and personal. Result - no more starving polar bears & Planet is less stupid ignorant people.

    I suppose no-one thought to organise a daily delivery of meat/fish for the poor animal? He's starving because of our greed, now needs help.

    Just another load of green shite.? We the human race have been making so called greenhouse gases for at most 350 year's the planet has had periods of intense heat and cold since it became a fucking planet.? With or without humans it will continue to do that until the sun swallows us up.? The scientific experts don't seem to know why the northern hemisphere is warming but there is more snow and ice in Antarctica.? That's why the tossers never mention it
