Fallen Icon: Sir David Attenborough and the Walrus Deception

Crockford_Fallen Icon_small THUMBNAIL cover_16 Jan 2022  In 2019, Sir David Attenborough created a scandal when he falsely insisted in the Netflix/WWF documentary ‘Our Planet’, that hundreds of walrus that fell to their deaths off a cliff in Siberia did so because of climate change. My investigation into the deceptions involved reveals the full extent of Attenborough’s journey to noble cause corruption, which started with the falling walrus and ended with him promoting ridiculous prophesies for COP26, which ultimately failed miserably in its objectives.

Currently available in paperback and ebook formats at Amazon, with a hardcover to follow soon.

What people are saying about Fallen Icon:

“Dr. Susan Crockford is a fearless pursuer of truth in an era when science has been comprehensively falsified and the media corrupted to promote a non-existent ‘climate crisis.’ In Fallen Icon she takes on the ‘gratuitous animal tragedy porn’ peddled by British natural historian Sir David Attenborough to promote hysteria ahead of the failed COP26 conference in Glasgow.” Peter Foster, National Post columnist and author of Why We Bite the Invisible Hand: The Psychology of Anti-Capitalism.

“In her new book Susan chronicles the deceitful and unscrupulous way in which Sir David Attenborough has characterized the death of hundreds of Russian walruses, claiming they were due to a lack of ice caused by global warning. Thanks to Susan we now know the truth about Sir David’s shameless attempt to use the walrus deaths to support another myth, that there is a ‘climate emergency’ that requires we effectively give up modern civilization altogether.”

Patrick Moore, Ph.D. Ecologist, Greenpeace co-founder, and author of Invisible Catastrophes and Threats of Doom.

Fallen Icon exposes how ‘the science’ was corrupted by a political campaign to promote the false notion that a global ‘climate emergency’ exists. How do you scare the public about climate change when polar bear numbers keep rising? Easy, show the public horrifying images of walruses falling to their deaths and hundreds of walrus corpses, and blame those deaths on scarier and scarier predictions of the future based on flawed climate models tuned to maximize dire scenarios. Crockford digs deep to expose the fraudulent tactics that climate activist Sir David Attenborough used to lobby for political ‘solutions’ that included a revolution of society not unlike ‘The Great Reset’ and the ‘Green New Deal’. If you thought Attenborough and the WWF really just wanted to save the walruses, then you need to read Fallen Icon.”

Marc Morano, publisher of Climate Depot, former senior staff U.S. Senate Environment & Public Works Committee. Author of Green Fraud: Why the Green New Deal is Even Worse Than You Think

Susan Crockford’s Fallen Icon is a riveting and revealing exposé of the great walrus-over-a-cliff climate scam perpetrated by an A-list of activists from the World Wildlife Fund to Netflix to David Attenborough. The book is detailed and well-documented.  Crockford’s work suggests that a key aspect of Attenborough’s Our Planet documentary series was a deliberate manipulation to create a sensational story describing climate events that never happened. Fallen Icon should serve as a red flag to all who want to hold on to the facts about climate change – and polar bears.

Terence Corcoran, National Post columnist.

The Polar Bear Catastrophe That Never Happened

Catastrophe cover thumbnail 200 pixels wide

The Polar Bear Catastrophe That Never Happened explains why the catastrophic decline in polar bear numbers we were promised in 2007 failed to materialize. It’s the story of how and why the polar bear came to be considered `Threatened’ with extinction, and tracks the species rise and fall as an icon of the global warming movement.

The book also tells the story of my role in bringing that failure to public attention and the backlash against me that ensued.

For the first time, you’ll see a frank and detailed account of attempts by scientists to conceal population growth as numbers rose from an historical low in the 1960s to the astonishing highs that surely must exist after almost 50 years of protection from overhunting.

There is also a blunt account of what truly abundant populations of bears mean for the millions of people who live and work in areas of the Arctic inhabited by polar bears.

This is a full-length illustrated book that is fully referenced.

Der Titel: Eisbären Fakten und Mythen: Eine wissenschaftliche Zusammenfassung für alle Altersgruppen

Beschreibung auf Deutsch: Vielen Kindern weltweit wurde erzählt, dass es nur noch ein paar hundert Eisbären auf der ganzen Welt gibt. Zum Glück ist die Nachricht, dass der Polarbär dem Untergang geweiht sei (und dass das allein die Schuld der Menschen sei) falsch. Es wird Zeit, dass die Kinder dies erfahren.

Die gute Nachricht, die Kinder hören müssen, ist diese: Eisbären sind nicht vom Aussterben bedroht aufgrund des Klimawandels. Tatsächlich gibt es heute viel mehr Polarbären als vor 50 Jahren und die Population weltweit hat eine gesunde Größe. Und das obwohl das Meereseis seit 2007 ein Niveau erreicht hat, von dem es hieß, dass es katastrophale Folgen haben würde. Eisbären kommen ganz gut mit weniger Meereseis im Sommer klar; entgegen allen Erwartungen ist ihre Zahl über die Jahre gestiegen, sie sind nicht weniger geworden.

Eisbär Fakten und Mythen ist ein ermutigendes wissenschaftliches Buch über das Überleben in der Arktis, welches Kindern und Eltern gleichermaßen gefällt.

Über die Autorin: Susan Crockford ist eine professionelle Zoologin, die seit mehr als 20 Jahren Polarbär-Ökologie und Evolution studiert. Sie hat einen Doktortitel und schreibt einen Blog über die historische und gegenwärtige Situation der Polarbären: Seit Jahren fragten Leser sie nach einem wissenschaftlichen Buch dass sich auch an Kinder richtet und in gleichsam rationaler und umfassender Perspektive gehalten ist wie ihre wissenschaftlichen Texte für Erwachsene. Dieses Buch ist Dr. Crockfords Antwort.

On a fait croire aux enfants qu’il ne reste que quelques centaines d’ours polaires, mais l’implacable message sur les ours polaires condamnés (par la faute de l’homme) est heureusement faux. Il est temps qu’on révèle la vérité aux jeunes.

Voici donc les bonnes nouvelles qu’on doit apprendre aux enfants: les ours polaires n’ont jamais été menacés d’extinction à cause d’un réchauffement global anthropique. Il y a effectivement davantage d’ours polaires qu’il y en avait il y a 50 ans, et la population globale est d’un taille respectable, en dépit du fait que la banquise d’été ait atteint des niveaux ayant dû, selon les prévisions, mener à la catastrophe depuis 2007.

Les ours polaires se sont adaptés admirablement bien à ces niveaux, et contre toute attente, leur nombre a augmenté et non pas diminué au cours des années.

L’ours polaire: Faits et Mythes est un livre scientifique inspirant sur la survie dans l’Arctique qui plaira aussi bien aux parents qu’aux enfants.

Tittel: ISBJØRN Fakta og Myter: Et vitenskapelig sammendrag for alle aldre

Forfatter: Susan J. Crockford

Oversattere: Arve Tunstad og Morten Jødal

Publiseringsdato: 18 November 2018

ISBN: 978-1731525628

Denne boken, illustrert med vakre fargebilder, forklarer på en enkel og lettfattelig måte hvorfor isbjørnen trives, til tross for at det er blitt mindre sjøis i Arktis de senere årene. Den er skrevet i et spørsmål/svar-format, med et språk som lesere i alle aldre kan forstå (fra 7 år, og oppover), basert på den ferskeste informasjonen som er tilgjengelig. Boken har en rasjonell tilnærming til isbjørn-vitenskapen, noe skarpsindige lesere vil sette pris på. Barn og voksne vil elske de fengslende bildene.

Barn over hele kloden har vært forledet til å tro at det bare er noen få hundre isbjørn igjen i verden, men de stadige meldingene om at isbjørnen er dømt til undergang (og at det er menneskenes feil), er heldigvis ikke riktige. Det er på tide at barn får vite sannheten.

Her er de gode nyhetene som barn trenger å høre: Isbjørnen er ikke drevet til randen av utryddelse på grunn av menneskeskapt global oppvarming. Faktisk er det mange flere isbjørner nå enn det var for 50 år siden. Det er en frisk og levedyktig bestand av isbjørn i verden, til tross for det faktum at sjøisen om sommeren, siden 2007, har vært på et nivå som ble spådd å føre til katastrofe. Isbjørnen har klart seg fint med lite sommer-is: Mot alle forventninger, har de blitt flere, ikke færre.

Isbjørn Fakta & Myter er en oppmuntrende vitenskapsbok om overlevelse i Arktis, som garantert vil glede både barn og foreldre.

Available in the US at  Also order from Germany here and in the UK here.
