For the first time, governments, environmentalists, researchers and Inuit are meeting to discuss the fate of the endangered carnivore

PATRICK WHITE

WINNIPEG — As a species, the polar bear is a relatively simple animal.

It spends half its time hunting. It feasts on seals for nearly 100 per cent of its calories. And it has no predators but humans.

Colby Cosh: A super-secret ingredient that could possibly be ethanol – National Post

Colby Cosh: A super-secret ingredient that could possibly be ethanol

Once again, life imitates art. Anyone remember the groundbreaking Upright Citizens Brigade sketch-comedy series that ran from 1998 to 2000? Throughout the show’s second season they had a brilliant running gag at the expense of the drug war: In nearly every episode there were references to a dangerous new street substance known as “supercool,” a sweet-tasting white powder capable of inducing powerful behavioural effects in children and dental problems in frequent users. The UCB universe ridiculed everything from the drug’s hippie legalizers/promoters and white-trash victims to the cops using increasingly brutal tactics and cheesy DARE-type education programs to extirpate it. The joke, never stated openly (indeed, one feels like an idiot explaining it), was that “supercool” is ordinary cane sugar.
