Climate Alarmists Celebrate Christmas By Blaming Climate Change For Killing Reindeer

(Tea Party 247) – Deck the halls with climate propaganda.

While the rest of us enjoy some eggnog, gifts, and triggering our leftist relatives, leave it to climate alarmists to find some Christmas-themed lie to tell us about the plight of our planet.

The Guardian’s Weatherwatch reports that reindeer, aka Caribou, locally, are highly adaptable to extremely cold weather.

While certainly, they can’t fly, their biological design “seems proof of God’s hand in their creation,” as Breitbart notes, then quoting the Guardian:

For a start, a reindeer’s feet have four toes with dewclaws that spread out to distribute its weight like snowshoes, and are equipped with sharp hooves for digging in snow.

A reindeer’s nose warms the air on its way to the lungs, cooling it again before it is exhaled. As well as retaining heat, this helps prevent water from being lost as vapour. This is why reindeer breath does not steam like human and horse breath.

Snowfields may be featureless to human eyes, but reindeer are sensitive to ultraviolet light, an evolutionary development that only occurred after the animals moved to Arctic regions. Snow reflects ultraviolet, so this ultravision allows reindeer to spot anything lying on it, in particular lichen, which they eat, and traces of urine showing where other reindeer have passed.

Live Science also has a few more fun facts about these animals:

Reindeer are built for the cold. Their noses warm up air before it gets to their lungs and their entire bodies, including their hooves, are covered with fur. These creatures can’t fly, but they can run. According to the San Diego Zoo, they can run up to 50 mph.

The Guardian, however, claims that a freeze-thaw weather pattern (which is of course due to climate change, they claim) is endangering these cold-weather-hearty creatures by limiting their access to lichen, which they graze on.

They also claim that the death of 200 reindeer earlier this year in the Arctic archipelago of Svalbard was all because of climate change, according to the Norwegian Polar Institute, which cited starvation.

“Climate change is making it rain much more. The rain falls on the snow and forms a layer of ice on the tundra, making grazing conditions very poor for animals,” Ashild Onvik Pederson, leader of an annual census of the Caribu on these arctic islands, told the Guardian.

What The Guardian does not tell us, however, is that a large number of reindeer deaths were recorded between 2007-2008…but not in the subsequent years leading up to the most recent census.

Ooops.

The outlet also goes on to almost cluelessly note that the reindeer population has actually been exploding despite the weather patterns:

The increased mortality is also due in part to a significant increase in the number of reindeer in the Norwegian archipelago. That is partly thanks to climate crisis and the warmer summers, meaning more individuals compete in the same grazing areas.

Since the 1980s, the number of reindeer has doubled in Svalbard, and now stands at about 22,000, according to the Norwegian Polar Institute.

    • If the Earth is facing doom in 12-years, then one-12th of the world’s population would be dying off right now. Smog and dirty contaminated air would hover a mile deep all over the entire planet. We wouldn’t be able to see the tops os skyscrapers. You could fly from New York to LA and never see the ground. Florida would be ten miles wide instead of a hundred miles, as it is now. A plentiful food supply would already be getting scarce. 12 years! Somebody is telling whopper falsehoods!

  1. If reindeer are actually dying in greater numbers (which I doubt), it might be from all the snow we’ve been getting.
    From global warming. Uhhh… right??

  2. This course of action by the Democrats is well explained in the following two resources. If you really want to understand what is going on in our government (our Country), I urge (even beg) you to read Andrew Breibart’s book called “Righteous Indignation” or at least watch Glenn Beck’s recent video called “The Democrat Hydra” on YouTube. Glenn’s video provides factual documents and text messages obtained through the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) and not conspiracy theory. If you agree Glenn’s information is correct, you can do your part like I am by spreading it around. Do as others have done, copy this entire comment and paste it in your social media networks. Yes, I keep posting this in hopes to reach new readers. We need to do something, not just talk about it. This is a well organized strategy by the Deep State and there is proof if you are willing to research it.

  3. Love it ! I am 100% in agreement with everything above . You hit it on the nose ! All we can do is hope that the Democrats will over cover themselves to keep from freezing and melt away when summer comes.

  4. looking forward to the end of the world in 4042 days
    I waiting for the I told you so more lies
    I’ve been told this BS since earth day in 1970

  5. So, climate change has caused, simultaneously, both a reduction and a growth in the herd. Well…that just about covers everything. Any questions?

  6. Climate change activists that cannot decide if their narrative is the climate getting colder or warmer. Their data is all screwed up because the politicians have altered records to prove their talking points. This we know..their projections were all wrong. Their threats were all wrong. AOC and the world is going to be gone in 10-12 years…what a joke. Little Greta and her savaged little brain blaming everyone so they would give trillions to the hoax.

  7. I can understand the global warming bit but how is that the fault of humans? If it weren’t for global warming we would still have glaciers clear down to New Orleans. Why do we think we should stop it or if we even can? There have been mammoths frozen solid that have been dug up and found near tropical undigested plants in their stomachs. That would indicate that the last ice hit in about seventy two hours.

  8. Those damned polar bears didn’t die off like we said they would……..

    HEY! Let’s go after the reindeer and caribou!!!

    Sooner or later we’ve got to pick the right one, ya know?

  9. Ha ha ha ha ha.

    When a phony “movement” starts to die, they have to lie harder, although it’s not even much of a bigger lie for the Guardian. Just a little bit above average.

    Don’t get me started on the climate cretins ……..

  10. As usual, a bunch of right wing scientifically illiterate clowns show how freaking dumb they are. Global warming is killing fish, cows, koalas and thousands of species. It is a disaster in Australia – but all you moronic fools can do suck up the garbage and lies that spew from the mouth of your senile leader that cannot even remember the words to the national anthem.

    • John, the scientific data has no political affiliation.

      Would you like me to stick a large portion of the aforementioned up your behind in the hope that it will have some chance of reaching your brain.

      Go on, give us all a laugh and tell us about the polar bear population data ……

    • No it isn’t. The earth will always have weather (not related directly to climate, but rather in symbiosis with it) irregularities as the earth moves in space, sometimes closer to the sun and sometimes closer to the moon. Very subtle movement, but movement all the same! Weather patterns have NOTHING to do with human activity. Climate change supporters continue to believe highly tainted data. Time for them to receive a collective frontal lobotomy!

    • john smith.See if you can remember this you sob.There is intelligent people out there,[not the imbeciles ]
      that you listen to,el stupido,and I agree with them that there is [no] climate change caused by humans,you stupid a–h—.Remember that you cant fix stupid.

  11. Isn’t it interesting that these “climate change” alarmists have a NEW lie EVERYTIME there is a change in the climate? . . . what they realize is that we’re “on to them” and even Greta Thunberg, their CLUELESS puppet, can’t even BEGIN to convince us of this CLIMATE CHANGE CRISIS scam. WE need to shove HER against the WALL and tell her “ENOUGH is ENOUGH!”. How DARE you tell ME your LIES, little girl?!? Team Trump and HIS allies 2020.

    • well said,JoeyP.I agree with you.Hope that Thunberg creature never sets foot back in our country.Her parents should be prosecuted for raising a little substitute human.

    • Cindy!!! Love it, and yes that would be so much joy to the people who know what it is all about. They don’t understand that the earth has been here for millions of years. We have had the ice age, which animals did survived and maybe even humans. They we had the stone age and again they were ok. Then the bronze age, and so forth and so on. They say even hundreds (do not know how many) the climate changes in different part of the world. I don’t think the animals or the humans are going to go extinct for a long long time. To me it is just another reason to get people all riled up! And to Joey P what the hell did you bring Trump into the conversation???? Do you think Trump made the “climate change”????? What an idiot you are! Why don’t you go to a library and read so history of America and the rest of the world.

  12. American Indians know that every tenth year is the “die-off year” among wild animals. In other words, aeons ago the Amerinds noted a regular cycle of population expansion/contraction. The die-off cycle appears to follow, fairly closely, the solar cycle. Any correlation between Amerind observation and scientific fact? Nah. Everybody knows the American Indian is just a superstitious know-nothing. 🙂

    • yes it is natural culling of the herds. Done to ensure there is enough to eat. Also for a good birthing season.
