ALL THE PROOF TARA NEEDS
Australia’s 60 Minutes delivers absolute and final proof of human-caused global warming:
If you still have any lingering doubts about global warming, stick around. We’re off to the Arctic, where Tara Brown found all the proof she needed that there’s something drastically wrong with the world’s weather. It came in the shape of a very large, very hungry polar bear - an angry predator, with us as its prey.
Stranded in the middle of nowhere with a three-metre, 300kg bear on the attack is a frightening experience. It’s also a graphic lesson in what happens when we mess with nature. As global temperatures rise, the ice cap melts and the polar bears’ hunting grounds disappear. Now they’re starving, desperate for food - so desperate even humans look appetising.
Science-minded readers may be asking: where was the control bear? You know, a bear all chubbed-up with baby seals and such, so we can test its non-starving reaction to an invading Tara Brown. Short of returning her to the bear-infested ice flats, Science demands that Tara be lowered into a polar bear enclosure at the nearest zoo.
