    Hotter seas threaten marine wildlife with extinction - researchers

    DD46EED8-0A59-478C-8157-34A1F00D4345.png

    LONDON, May 7 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Polar bears and other iconic animals could be extinct by the end of the century if ocean temperatures continue to rise at the current rate, marine biologists warned Monday.


    So.

    Why would they die in just a few generations? Fish and seals are there for food. Polar bears have been living in the San Diego zoo for decades, so warmth doesn’t harm them. The oceans are rising so that warmth is well hidden. So what’s going to kill them?


    The absurdity of the chicken little left in their doomsday predictions is hilarious. They’ve been making this prediction for decades only to find their population increasing.

    Wasn't it several years ago, scientists were saying the Polar Bears were going extinct because of overfishing, human encroachment/loss of habitat, overhunting???

    Oceans were much warmer 10,000 to 1,000 years ago, yet the Polar Bears are still here.

    Pacific Ocean Heat Content During the Past 10,000 Years

    "Abstract
    Observed increases in ocean heat content (OHC) and temperature are robust indicators of global warming during the past several decades. We used high-resolution proxy records from sediment cores to extend these observations in the Pacific 10,000 years beyond the instrumental record. We show that water masses linked to North Pacific and Antarctic intermediate waters were warmer by 2.1 ± 0.4°C and 1.5 ± 0.4°C, respectively, during the middle Holocene Thermal Maximum than over the past century. Both water masses were ~0.9°C warmer during the Medieval Warm period than during the Little Ice Age and ~0.65° warmer than in recent decades. Although documented changes in global surface temperatures during the Holocene and Common era are relatively small, the concomitant changes in OHC are large."

    Not so sure you can hunt a polar bear, though.

    Doesn't it have to do with the ice floes melting? That's where the bears do their "fishing," I think.

    I'm not sure either anymore but I think at one time it was legal......atleast for Native Americans. I may be wrong though IDK. BUT they were/are poached

    If all the ice on earth melted you’d still have a shore. Seals and fish always stay close to shores.

    And oceans are not rising.
