Why be skeptical? Here is a thought, you think Polar Bears won’t adjust to the conditions around them and the Artic ocean will ice free or whatever and you find several years later, you find the bears are thriving and doing well.
Studies have shown the Bear population has stablished or increased, not dropped by 67% as predicted. (some keep predicting drops but considering past record, one has to be skeptical. ) Would you think great, the Bears are surviving
Instead of celebrating, you fire the scientist found this be true and try to prove the opposite. That is why climate science, which is relatively new, needs to question. It has been hijacked by political activists with PHD and activists with an agenda.
