From John Tierney's NYT blog, TierneyLab:
Last week’s column about Bjorn Lomborg’s ideas for combatting global warming generated lots of angry comments, including the suggestion that Dr. Lomborg and I be fed to polar bears.
I'm looking forward to the WSJ's Weekend Journal
reviewing my new restaurant; Der Eisbär.
"An eclectic menu, featuring seal and a delicious smoked Danish economist but strangely lacking croissants..."
POLAR BEAR TOLD TO STOP SNACKING
Fatty Knut Put on Strict Diet
Knut, the world's most famous polar bear, is off the scales after eating too many snacks and has been put on a diet. The Berlin Zoo said Knut's handlers have been told to stop feeding him extra rations of croissant, fish and meat.
"Knut has become noticeably round," zoo vet Andreas Ochs said. "So we shall be feeding him restrictively."
That means no more croissants and extra portions of fish and meat for the shaggy youngster, who turns eight months on August 5.
He is now believed to weigh around 60 kilograms but the zoo can't be sure exactly because its scales only go to 50 kilos... From Der Spiegel
