Canada’s polar bear population booming

  • polarbears

Since the 1970’s, sea ice in Canada’s western Hudson Bay has declined noticeably, alarming some about the fate of polar bears in the region. Now come two studies indicating such fears were unfounded. As reported in the Journal of Wildlife Management, scientists from Ontario’s Lakewood University as well as the US Geological Survey have discovered that polar bear numbers, far from being depleted by alleged global warming, are actually increasing at a rapid rate. In 1993 there were 1,400 polar bears in the region. Today that number has hit nearly 2,200. In fact the increase in bears has created a new worry for scientists: namely that there are too many of them, now exceeding the area’s carrying capacity.

    Obviously uninformed or malicious WWF still produces TV advertisements that “because of Global Climate Change” polar bears are near extinction and that all planet’s life forms are menaced in the same way with extinction!
    What kind of dirt is WWF throwing at us?
    WWF should be made extinct for publicizing their unending stream of pertinent lies! Many years ago I was a donor of WWF, but noting their lies about AGW CO2 and Global Climate Change, I told them to quit that strain of lies or I would stop being a WWF donor; they went on lying, so I stopped my contribution.
