GOAL REACHED!

What a friggin’ awesome community this is. One day was all it took.

My heartfelt thanks to all of you for your generosity and moral support. Your donations will ensure this publication happens quickly and looks professional.

Warmest regards,

Susan

And let me add, Thank You all for your ever so kind support of this effort — makes me proud to be associated with all of you. — Kip Hansen

My favorite bone whisperer, Dr. Susan Crockford, is writing a new book, which she describes as “the complete story of polar bear evolution, including the role of hybridization, but without the baffling scientific jargon.”

With all the nonsense being flung about in the IPCC-Global Warming-Climate Crisis kowtowing blathering press about the imminent demise of polar bears, wouldn’t it be terrific to be able to read the true Polar Bear story?  Wouldn’t it be great to be able to refer your friends and family to a book that would clarify the Great Polar Bear story, from the distant past to the present,  in an easily accessible fashion, written by a real expert?

The new book has yet to have a title but Dr. Crockford has a long history of writing informative books for both adults and children.  I—Kip Hansen—have reviewed several of them in these digital pages at WUWT.

But…[isn’t there always a “but”]…even for digital books, there are a lot of up-front production costs: for editing, drafting of figures, and e-book formatting.

Dr. Crockford, for the first time, is asking for a little help to defray those costs and facilitate getting the book out early next year.   She is even offering an incentive – a chance to win the opportunity to have a character in her next book [fiction, I assume] named after them.

Let’s give her a hand, from her colleagues and friends at WUWT.  A lot of little donations adds up to just enough to get the job done.

Read her appeal at:

Five years ago today, activist scientists tried to silence me: I’m still here but I need your help

And just now I have spent 50 minutes on the telephone to my Bank, ( mostly listening to a recorded voice telling me that the call will be answered shortly,) which finally concluded by telling me that the payment had been declined and the card blocked; but now that they have spoken to me, if I want to make the transaction again the machinery will now allow it.

I tried to find out why the payment had been blocked but they just waffled about “security”

Anyway, here goes again.

Seems to have worked, but it seemed to work yesterday also.

Yep, got an email saying it worked.

Next time it might be easier to jump on a WestJet to Halifax, train to Vancouver, ferry to Victoria and hand over the donation in person.

Well, I would have really liked that, Oldseadog. But I do thank you for your perseverance. I must say I had similar feelings setting up the system.

You guys are the best!

It moves me to tears to know you are all so supportive: not just now, but always. Every dollar you donate is very much appreciated. And so many cool names on the list vying for inclusion in the new thriller novel…

Thanks also for your patience in dealing with the less-than-ideal set up with the donation box formatting. Both STRIPE and the wordpress interphase for it are new to me and not very user-friendly for a techno-dolt like me. I think the problem is that the text font is too large and I will see if I can fix that. But I’m glad to see that the actual transactions seem to be going smoothly.

I sent a small amount, but the web page seemed flaky.
The right side was truncated so the result was not apparent.
Hope it worked.
I also have two “throws” with Polar Bears; still in original packages.
Anyone passing near Ellensburg and headed Susan’s way could
give them a ride. They will appreciate that.

Kip,
I wasn’t very worried but wanted to indicate the issue.
Interestingly, my comment above says posted at 12:50 pm
and I got an e-mail receipt tagged at 2:44 pm.
The internet and WP are wonderfully complex entities.
Best to all.

Donated. Time to repay a little of the kindness received from WUWT. I look forward to buying the book and reading it.

I also took the opportunity to cancel my Paypal account. I had enough of them and their censorship. I told them that was the reason to cancel.

so what happened to the polar bear population during the very warm inter-glacial periods?

yes, I understand that- but I’m curious if there is any info on the population numbers during the warmest periods- probably no way to know for sure but there must be some theories on this

Some University of Victoria trivia for WUWT readers: my daughter obtained her undergrad degree there the same year Susan was awarded her PhD. Although we do not live in Canada, one of my grandmothers was born in Ladysmith, BC.
