Expert: Recent studies show September ice extent of 3-5 mkm2 did not kill polar bears off as predictedPosted: September 14, 2016
There has been a massive expansion of thick Arctic Sea ice since 2012.
So much for the persistent dire warnings of an “Ice-Free Arctic” and “Dying Polar Bears”!
What other falsehoods are you told by alarmist climate scientists and the global warmist media?
Dr. Susan Crockford asks me to bring this to your attention. She writes:
The annual Arctic sea ice minimum for 2016 is imminent and the hand-wringing about polar bear survival has already begun. While this year isshaping up to be another very low sea ice minimum in the Arctic – not as low as 2012 but lower than 2007 (previously the 2nd lowest since 1979) – contrary to predictions, several recent studies show that such low sea ice coverage in summer has had no (or very limited) negative effects on polar bear health and survival. In fact, for polar bears in some areas low summer sea ice has been quite beneficial (although these are not the populations that polar bear specialists predicted would do better).
Since low summer extents of recent magnitude (3.0 – 5.0 mkm2) are clearly not any sort of threat to polar…
