And Arctic ice is thicker than it has ever been (since satellite measurement began in 1979).
Meanwhile, it looks like all the Polar Bear Alarmists are on the run and not so confident that all the big white woolly beasts all drowning:
There remain only an estimated 20,000 to 25,000 Polar bears [note: they forget to mention that this is the greatest population of PBs in history} distributed around the north pole, in territories belonging to the U.S. (Alaska), Canada, Russia, Denmark (Greenland), and Norway.I had been led to believe by Al Gore et al, that they were all drowning and starving already...
The Polar bear needs sea ice to hunt for seals, and hence to survive (Derocher et al, 2004; Stirling & Parkinson, 2006). Dramatic reductions in sea ice coverage (IPCC,2007) are projected across the whole Arctic in the near future.
