The U.S. Geological Survey just released a report this week “warning a third of the world’s polar bears could be in imminent danger from greenhouse gas emissions as soon as 2025…Greenhouse gases are blamed for the climate warming that’s reducing the polar bear’s summer sea ice habitat.” But is this talk complete nonsense?
We ask one of the world’s leading scientists dealing with polar bears. Dr. Mitchell Taylor, of Lakehead University has spent more than 30 years researching polar bears in Canada and around the Arctic Circle both as an academic and government employee. Gabriel Niryungaluk is Nunavut’s Deputy Minister of the Environment. He has spent much time on the ice with Dr. Taylor, and also feels the bears are increasing in numbers.
