Arctic Sea Ice Melting, Polar Bears Drowning
It is not a good time to be a polar bear. “A new study finds that Arctic sea ice [search] in prime polar bear habitat is breaking up earlier in some cases leading to polar bear drownings, with direct impacts on the species' ability to survive and reproduce.” Their usually frozen Arctic Sea ice is melting [more | more2 ]. Sometime soon passage to the North Pole will be by boat only.
“Arctic sea ice is melting in winter far faster than before, two new NASA studies reported Wednesday… Scientists point to the sudden and rapid melting as a sign of man-made global warming… For more than 25 years, Arctic sea ice has slowly diminished in winter by about 1.5 percent per decade. But in the past two years the melting has occurred 10 to 15 times faster.”
This sudden and rapid Arctic ice melting as a sure sign of man-made global warming. How many polar bears need to drown before humanity sees that climate change threatens all life forms – and is barreling down on humanity?
