It's getting colder because it's getting warmer

Just looked at the supposed 'science'. Nine bears were tracked for 10 days.

Hillary had larger crowds. Sure they were bussed in but still.

It's believed there are 20,000 to 30,000 polar bears but more than half of their habitat has little or no data. IOW, the population estimate is made up.

Your prayers have worked like crazy. Maybe one of these days I won't have any behavior issues.

15.gif Even science has become politicized, data custom fudged for the agenda.

Considering these polar bears are endangered, nine bears would seem to me to be an adequate number for a regional study.

Another opinion:

“It’s a really strong study,” said Steven Amstrup, chief scientist for Polar Bears International, a conservation-focused organization, who was not involved with the work. “It shows that polar bears are more like the big cats—lions and tigers— predatory carnivores with high energy metabolisms,” Amstrup said.

Status by country

International: Vulnerable
Canada: Special Concern
Greenland / Denmark: Vulnerable
Norway: Vulnerable
Russia: Indeterminate, Rare, or Recovering, depending on population
United States: Threatened

In the future -

By 2040, scientists predict that only a thin edge of ice will remain in Northeast Canada and Northern Greenland when all other large areas of summer ice are gone. This "Last Ice Area" is likely to become important for polar bears and other life that depends on ice.
A projection of sea ice in the archipelago, supported by WWF, shows that much of the region is facing significant ice loss in the coming decades - with potentially serious consequences for polar bears.
Global polar bear numbers are projected to decline by 30% by 2050.

You have no evidence that polar bears are endangered, especially since more than half their habitat has not been tracked for decades.

Do you understand that a group like Polar Bears Int'l would have a vested interest in claiming there are a shortage of bears? They get donations for creating a crisis and promising to prevent the disappearance of the bears.

Saying that a species is "vulnerable" probably sells a lot of tee shirts. Every species is vulnerable. I feed an outdoor cat. His very life is vulnerable because he's getting older and there is a bigger, younger cat that comes by sometimes. That doesn't make outdoor cats endangered.

It's not global warming that is hurting the bears because they have lived through warmer eras.

Any shortage, if there is any shortage, comes from the fishing ships that rape the sea bottom, taking away all sorts of marine habitat. It's a real problem, but Al Gore hasn't come up with a carbon credit cash cow for marine-life raping ships.
