So if they're 'minimal/minimalist' running shoes,

why do the damn things cost a hundred bucks? Not just the ones with toes, either.

Oh, what will the warmenists do?
The debate about climate change and its impact on polar bears has intensified with the release of a survey that shows the bear population in a key part of northern Canada is far larger than many scientists thought, and might be growing.

The number of bears along the western shore of Hudson Bay, believed to be among the most threatened bear subpopulations, stands at 1,013 and could be even higher, according to the results of an aerial survey released Wednesday by the Government of Nunavut. That’s 66 per cent higher than estimates by other researchers who forecasted the numbers would fall to as low as 610 because of warming temperatures that melt ice faster and ruin bears’ ability to hunt
They will be 'concerned' about it, that's what.

Speaking of globular warmering bullcrap,
An elderly woman was ordered to find a new GP because the “carbon footprint” of her two-mile round trips to the surgery where she had been treated for 30 years was too large.

For the ladies:

Her small California group, the Wildlands Conservancy, wanted to preserve 600,000 acres of the Mojave. The group raised $45 million, bought the land and deeded it to the federal government.

The conservancy intended that the land be protected forever. Instead, 12 years after accepting the largest land gift in American history, the federal government is on the verge of opening 50,000 acres of that bequest to solar development.

Even worse, in Sall's view, the nation's largest environmental organizations are scarcely voicing opposition. Their silence leaves the conservancy and a smattering of other small environmental organizations nearly alone in opposing energy development across 33,000 square miles of desert land
A: How many millions/billions more of 'loan guarantees for green energy' from Obama & Co. are involved?
B: How much of the Sierra Club and such bending over is because they don't want to oppose Obama, whatever the cost?
C: And how much money are groups like Sierra and NRDC getting out of going along with this crap?

Speaking of critters,
Thankfully, some of the most inviting-looking swimming holes are free of crocodiles.
