Polar bears


IF YOU are a climate change denier or sceptic then I suggest you take a trip to the Arctic and have a chat with a few polar bears, especially females with young cubs.

In the past 10 or so years the amount of summer sea ice in the Arctic has decrease dramatical­ly.

As a result female polar bears with young cubs have to swim longer distances in search of sea ice in order to hunt seals which is their main prey. Quite often the cubs become exhausted and drown.

Irrespecti­ve of the causes of climate change (natural climate cycles and/or greenhouse gas emissions by human activities) climate change is real, it’s occurring now. and so get used to it.
