Global Warming Update: Polar Bears Threatened by Excessive Ice
Could it be that global warming moonbats actually got something right? It turns out the flourishing polar bears are actually threatened after all:
Five meters of ice— about 16 feet thick – is threatening the survival of polar bears in the Southern Beaufort Sea region along Alaska’s Arctic coast, according to Dr. Susan J. Crockford, an evolutionary biologist in British Columbia who has studied polar bears for most of her 35-year career.
That’s because the thick ice ridges could prevent ringed seals, the bears’ major prey, from creating breathing holes they need to survive in the frigid waters, Crockford told CNSNews.com.
“Prompted by reports of the heaviest sea ice conditions on the East Coast ‘in decades’ and news that ice on the Great Lakes is, for mid-April, the worst it’s been since records began, I took a close look at the ice thickness charts for the Arctic,” Crockford noted in her Polar Bear Science blog on April 18th.
“Sea ice charts aren’t a guarantee that this heavy spring ice phenomenon is developing in the Beaufort, but they could be a warning,” she wrote, noting that they “don’t bode well” for the Beaufort bears.
The poor darlings.
Since according to liberal ideology affordable conventional light bulbs make it be too hot outside, a law should be passed at once making these legal again so that we can melt the ice and save the sacred man-eating polar bears.
By the way, The Goracle predicted in 2007 (the year he won the Nobel Peace Prize for telling global warming lies) that all the arctic ice could be gone by last summer. Yet vast amounts of other people’s money continue to be flushed away in the name of his debunked hoax.
