It must be something about the whiney voice of B-list celebs wittering on about the plight of the polar bear that just sets me off. I know they're are only playing up to their "cute" TV appearances, and indeed they and their cubs are cute on television or at a distance, but up close and in your face, they are bloody lethal.
Of course it's all about "Global Warming" and "Mans Impact On The Environment" the topics dear to the heart of anyone who needs to look "concerned". We should all be worried whenever the press reports that temperatures have not been this warm since the end of the last ice age some 12000 years ago.
I note that no one gave a rats arse about the furry elephants that we lost back then. Now they were cute.
Which of course might carry some weight were it not for one small, constantly glossed over fact that we are still coming out of this ice age, so of course it's going to get warmer, with or without our help.
