Walrus suicide hoax revealed

Empower Wisconsin | Nov. 8 2019

No, walruses distraught over climate change are not committing suicide in droves. 

It’s just the latest phony tale of animal misery peddled by climate change alarmists. 

The offending opportunist this time? Sir David Attenborough, the BBC broadcaster dubbed a ‘natural treasure” by England’s green weenies. 

Attenborough teamed up with Netflix, with the financial backing of the World Wildlife Fund, to produce “Our Planet.” 

The documentary included audience-traumatizing  scenes of walruses plummeting from high atop cliffs to their gruesome deaths on the rocky terrain below. The walruses, the documentary claimed, have run out of sea ice thanks to those greedy carbon-spewing humans. 

Except, like many dramatic tales in Climate Change Land, it’s not true. 

Sea ice, dwindling or otherwise, has nothing to do with it, scientists say. They say the walruses were more than likely spooked by marauding polar bears, the previous faulty symbol of climate change’s destructive impact. 

(In another inconvenient truth for Al Gore and the gang: polar bears are thriving thanks to protection measures over the last couple of generations.)

In many cases, scientists believe overcrowding by the massive 2,000-pound beasts on Pacific Coast beaches have forced walruses to shelter in higher places. Bad choice for an animal that navigates extremely well through water but not so good on land.

Attenborough and Netflix quietly corrected their hoax in the more recent BBC documentary “Seven Worlds,” in which he confirms the mass walrus suicide was caused by hungry polar bears, not by carbon footprints.
