LinkedIn deletes Climate Change Dispatch post challenging DisneyNature's polar bear population doom mongering: LinkedIn removed a post from Climate Change Dispatch (CCD) which included a link to PolarBearScience.com challenging DisneyNature's documentary "Polar Bear" and its narrative that the polar bear population was endangered because of climate change. CCD shared emails with MRC Free Speech America confirming the censorship. According to the censored article, "[S]pring research in Svalbard, Norway in 2021 showed bears there were thriving: the body condition of male polar bears was stable and litter size of family groups was the same as it had been in 1994." In addition, "[t]here has been no reduction in [the polar bear] population size since 2004 despite" the "profound" loss in sea ice. PolarBearScience proceeded to note that "the premise of the DisneyNature film that polar bear females are ‘suffering’ is contracted by scientific data showing female body condition 'increased significantly between 2004 and 2017.'"
LinkedIn removed CCD's post, accusing that it "goes against our policy on misinformation. It has been removed and only you can access it." CCD told MRC Free Speech America: "I got a post taken down again, but this time it’s not even on my site but from Susan Crockford’s." CensorTrack has recorded LinkedIn targeting CCD's page before. "These companies are out of control," CCD said in slamming the censorship.
CCD informed MRC Free Speech America that he appealed the decision. CCD stated the following in the appeal to LinkedIn: "The last time you took down a post you admitted it was in error. I think someone is trolling my account and flagging any posts they don't like. This was also an article by a polar bear expert and biologist," and "she has copious references at the end of her piece."
LinkedIn rejected the appeal, claiming: "After taking a second look, we confirmed your content goes against our Professional Community Policies, https://www.linkedin.com/legal/professional-community-policies."
