Good link.

Yeah, you cannot under any circumstances (other then if one or better, 2 legs of his is shot out) outrun a griz of black bear - unless it wants you to, as in just scaring you off without intent to kill and/or eat you.

We "clocked" a black bear boar or sow in Northern Ontario with a school buss (Jr. Forest Rangers) at 35 miles per hour for just over 2 miles. She was running on the asphalt in front of us, before leaving the road to the right and we could it breaking off aspen as it ran through the bush beside the road.
It did not seem to slow down running through those little trees. The bus driver (German/Ojibwa) hated bears and as the bear was turning off the road, he hit the horn and held it for a few seconds. The bear seemed to speed up.

Interesting article, except for the obvious “climate change” grandstanding in the Polar Bear segment. Very tiresome.
Poor bears, endangered they are, “everyone” knows there is ZERO sea ice left anywhere <sarc>
I wish the Climate Religion zealots were relegated to the scrap heap……or maybe they and their cute little bells turned into bear scat.

Just watched a show talking about the Antarctic & how it's building ice. The loss in the arctic was attributed to the polar tilt, which of course
happens periodically making the slight ups and downs in the weather & how it's still getting colder, overall. Interesting show. Of course, I can't find it now.

Antartica is building more ice than it is loosing and this has been confirmed by NASA, not that you need NASA to confirm if you know your Antarctic history. Back in the 1930 US Admiral Byrd(Spelling) built 3 radio towers down there. In the earl 1990's the tallest, 110 feet high, had only 7 feet protruding above ice. By very early 2000's it was totally covered and the ice levels were still rising.

As far as Artic history goes in the 1420's there were settlements and farms on the North Coast of Greenland and ships could circumnavigate the island. It is still not that warm up there.

During the Roman occupation period, there were vinyards in England.
I've got a video you might be interested in Rule303.

There were vineyards in a lot more places than today. Perhaps warmer?

But phylloxera a vine disease wiped out vineyards in a great many places in the 1800s. South Australia is the only place on Earth where phylloxera never arrived. As a result the Barossa has the oldest vineyards on Earth. Two or three claim to be oldest, 1850s.

Phylloxera resistant root stock is used in modern vineyards with quality varieties grafted to the root stocks. Most of my vines are own roots. Which produce better quality grapes and wines. Mine would die if phylloxera got past quarantine restrictions.

They aren't receding just like ice isn't receding.

Yesterday it was non stop climate change mania on pravdaABC because the globalist Marxist Comrade Chairman of the UN Guterres, demanded rich countries cut back even faster on "carbon" to save the world. PravdaABC claimed Antarctica will have "no ice" one year in ten by some other fantasy imaginary year if we don't. Actually it was from one year increasing tomtwo or more years of "no ice". I didn't listen too closely .... Kids and sheople's story time aka the "news".
