Brown Polar Bears at Risk

Roanoke Times, 4/12/09, Pg 18: Melting of sea ice picking up speed. Arctic sea ice could be gone in 30 years (according to complex computer models of weather and climate).
-
Apparently these models couldn’t predict the current 250 years of global warming, 35 years of cooling from 1940 to 1975, nor the past ten years of no net global temperature change nor what caused the little ice age to arrive no less stop in 1750.
-
The picture of a forlorn polar bear resting on the ice was a nice touch.
As a contrast click to view three of the 2100 happy bears in Greenland’s Davis Straight:

Ah yes – only 5.4 MILLION SQUARE MILES of artic ice this winter.

But be afraid – it’s mostly new ice and new ice isn’t good ice unless you’re making a cocktail.
-
Our climate is changing – our climate has always been changing!
The glaciers will continue to retreat and ice will continue to melt until the 250 years of natural global warming abates and then either stabilizes or we once again enter a cooling period.

An interesting point is that the polar bears are not a unique species but instead are grizzly brown bears that have adapted to cold climates. As our natural global warming continues, Darwin would expect future generations to adapt once again to more open water and land vegetation environments or perhaps as Darwin so well describes – they may not.

A light-hearted optimistic view might be a quote from Thor Hammer: speaking of homework.... what's really going to be funny is how the polar bears will evolve once global climate change really kicks in -- they'll evolve BACK into the grizzly bears from whence they came. They won't drown. They'll simply walk away and switch to Pepsi.
-
Have you noticed how liberals love to quote Darwin when they’re Jesus-bashing, but show them a snail-darter or a spotted owl and they suddenly never heard about Darwin and instead scream that we must save yet another endangered species.
They’re so selective!
-
Be afraid – be very afraid of those who would exploit our natural climate cycles for personal gain.
