    Alaskan Polar Bears Threatened…By Too Much Spring Ice
    April 25, 2014 – Five meters of ice– about 16 feet thick - is threatening the survival of polar bears in the Southern Beaufort Sea region along Alaska’s Arctic coast, according to Dr. Susan J. Crockford, an evolutionary biologist in British Columbia who has studied polar bears for most of her 35-year career.

    The 2013 data from the experts.

    Summary of polar bear population status per 2013

    Out of the 19 defined distinct populations, 4 are declining, 5 are stable, 1 is increasing, and 9 are data deficient.

    However, since it's from people who know what they're doing, the hardcore denialists will auto-reject it.
