|The 17-year-old died after the bear attacked the group from the British Schools Exploring Society at around 7.30 am while they were camping in the remote Norwegian Arctic Archipelago of Svalbard. Residents said that the bears stalk the barren region in search of food and that there is a history of attacks on tourists.

Something about this story is very odd. Surely, under the Obama administration any government official who was discovered to have been “emotionalising the issue” in order to raise public awareness of the terrible dangers of ManBearPig would be given a promotion, and a Congressional Medal of Honor at the very least? Can it really be possible that BOEMRE remains so principled and inviolate that it still insists its employees cleave to the truth?
