With the record thick September ice in the Beaufort Sea, Polar Bears are having a terribly difficult time finding places to drown.

    think of the cubs( aka children)…

    Why aren’t alarmists fitting polar bears with life preservers? They are making plans to alter our skies in a massive geo-engineering push, but nobody is making Mae Wests in XXXXXXXXXXL? Why can’t John Kerry windsurf his way up there, and give remedial swimming lessons to the young adult male polar bears?

    a large proportion of polar bears rely on the ice reaching Svalbard and beyond so they can reach their denning areas where their cubs are born…

    It will be interesting to see if they can get there this winter, given how far north the ice is on that side of the arctic.

      The bears are fine, just like the ice, and just like the climate. Go help someone who needs it. Even genocidal racists as yourself can find a way to contribute to humanity.

      Ninety five years ago, there was no ice around Svalbard all winter. The Polar Bears must have gone extinct.

      Edward,

      You have been told repeatedly that many published papers show little to no summer ice in the arctic and that it lasted for HUNDREDS of years. in the early part of the Holocene.

      Here is a link to a number of the papers:

      How did the Polar Bears make it without the ice, Ed?

    • sunsettommy says:

      As usual I see that you are making it up since many of the mother Bears actually use the shore or land along the northern part of CANADA.

      Polar bear
      The polar bear (Ursus maritimus) creates a maternity den either in an earthen subterranean or in a snow cave. On the Hudson Bay Plain in Manitoba, Canada, many of these subterranean dens are situated in the Wapusk National Park, from which bears migrate to the Hudson Bay when the ice pack forms.[2] The maternity den is the bear’s shelter for most of the winter. “When all the other polar bears are heading off to the openness of the ocean, the pregnant female polar bears begin looking for a maternity den. This maternity den is usually in a snow bank, or along an ice patch of ocean shore. It is here that the female polar bear will go into a hibernation type state. Female polar bears dig their own maternity den. It is important the the [sic] female polar bears have fed enough in the spring and summer before fall, because of the scarcity of food on land when winter comes. While in the maternity den, the mother polar bear will not eat, drink or defecate. The female polar bear will stay in the maternity den and give birth to her cubs

      or,

      Polar Bear Denning

      The pink dots on this map show the distribution of maternal dens occupied by radio-collared polar bears between 1981 and 2000 on the mainland coast of Alaska and Canada. The collared bears are a subset of the total number of bears that use this area. Tracking of the collared bears identified 53 dens along the mainland coast, 26 (50%) of which were within the bounds of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Twenty-two of the 53 dens (42%) were within the bounds of the 1002 area.

      “Other dens have been located on the Alaska north slope since the turn of the century, but these observations cannot be considered to have an unbiased distribution since visual searches only locate dens in areas where investigators look. However, the dens shown on this map represent an unbiased estimate of denning distribution because the radio-collared bears led investigators to the den sites. Statistical tests (see below) confirmed that the distribution of these dens was not biased by the distribution of the sampling (radio-tagging) efforts.”

      It shows that Polar Bear mothers seem to prefer the land over the ocean when denning.

      Really, then how come there are increased numbers after 2012.

      You are yet again, shown to be a LIAR, griff.

      • spike55 says:

        And with ALL THAT THICK SEA ICE in the Beaufort sea, the Pollie bears can basically walk all the way to their dens in Northern Canada and Alaska.

    Monnett spotted the dead bears from the air. There was no necropsy performed, so as the article states he speculated. We have no idea how those bears died.
