While the focus has been on the collapsing world economies and efforts to prop it by Central Banks, the mainstream media once again misses the major story of the day.

The international climate talks in Durban are on track to fail... sadly yet again.
The United States' position appears to be to defer serious action until 2020.
As the Durban deadline nears, the big carbon emitters -- U.S., China, India, Japan, Russia and Canada -- have all signaled that they are unwilling to continue with a commitment of binding emission cuts in a treaty, according to Climate Progress.
And in even more disturbingly dire climate news, hungry polar bears are becoming desperate and eating their own cubs, according to BBC News.
The dramatic retreat of Arctic sea ice in summer months -- which we have highlighted over and over-- leaves vast stretches of open water. And without their customary platform on which to hunt seals, bears have gone looking for alternative sources of food... their own cub bears.
