    Polar Bears doesn't seem to be bothered by low Arctic sea Ice that much after all, maybe it wasn't that critical in the first place for a reason warmists never seem to fathom.

    New Survey: Polar Bear Population Is Largest Ever

    Published on September 6, 2018

    The Chukchi Sea finally has a polar bear population estimate! According to survey results from 2016 only recently made public, about 2,937 bears (1,522-5,944) currently inhabit the region, making this the largest subpopulation in the Arctic.

    This is exciting news — and a huge accomplishment — but the US Fish and Wildlife Service responsible for the work has been oddly mum on the topic.

    The BBC doesn’t even try to pretend to be not propaganda anymore.

    Trump even called them out specifically.

    It was amazing....the show was called FROZEN EARTH. I tuned in thinking, "BBC.....wtf?". Was about the Arctic.....and the whole fucking show was about it not being frozen soon. Some old scientist guru guy stating, "Soon this will all be going away....."

    I thought, "Holy Fuck....imagine your typical low information dummy tuning in to watch this!"

    Oy

    I guess no one here bothered to read the article. Its most repeated four word phrase was , "if it is real.".

    If true it is good news, but does nothing to take away from the truth of climate change and the heating up of the planet.

    This is why readers should read the article in full, because John Law took the four word quote (not even a true quote) in dishonest fashion, here is the full quote:

    "Nevertheless, it means the 2016 estimate for Alaska could be roughly three times what it was in 2010: a whopping 1,500 or so, up from about 450 (or about 225-650) for the same area estimated during the last survey (Bromaghin et al. 2015: Fig. 5a).

    Even if the real number for Alaska is only twice as large (~1,000), that’s still a huge improvement. It would eliminate the Southern Beaufort as the only polar bear subpopulation in the Arctic to have shown a significant decline blamed on human-caused global warming (Crockford 2018).

    If the recovery is real, it means the 2004-2006 decline was a temporary fluctuation after all, just like previous declines in the region. I expect, however, that it will take a dedicated SB population survey for officials to concede that point."

    bolding mine

    You are pathetic John.

    Meanwhile you ignored the evidence that Polar Bears populations are in good shape throughout the Arctic region, DESPITE the drop in summer ice.
