Poley Bears

8 Jul 2012

There are some interesting facts about polar bears and brown bears on the sceptic blog http://notrickszone.com/2012/07/07/arthur-c-smith-iii-polar-bear-extinct... ... and really, it is all about the Ice Ages, ice advances and retreats, and the changing habitat of the polar bear - their remains have even been found in Ireland. It also stresses the differences between polar bears and brown bears - although hybrids are known. What is obvious when assessing the palaeoclimate record on polar bears is that they have lived through a succession of climate changes - why would the current minor warming event cause a crisis? Humans are the enemy of the polar bear - hunters.
