There are an estimated 25,000 bears left in the wild and most experts agree that unless climate change is halted, they will all be dead within the next 100 years.

So all you folks pushing to extract and sell oil this is on you and have fun explaining to your grandchildren why it was you would not listen

oh that's right I forgot you don't use oil or have anything that's made from oil typical comments from a hypocrite

A 2017 study by the US Geological Survey and the University of Wyoming concluded that bears are also spending more energy walking across a “treadmill” of drifting sea ice caused by warming, and needed to eat more to compensate. According to the Washington Post (paywall), researchers believe 80% of polar bear populations could die off if sea ice continues to disappear.

I wonder what kind of studies and "viral videos" we would have seen when the Mammoth's died out during the last glacial retreat?
Nobody wants to hear your opinion. They just want to hear their own opinion coming out of your mouth.

You not watch the "Ice Age" series of documentaries, truly fascinating, they even throw
some humour in to keep the wee ones entertained.

Many big name Hollywood types took part, Ray Romano to name one.

Even though "they lie" - about the climate - about everything - they ARE creating climate change - they can predict the climate because they have been and will be continuing to create it.

I do not disagree with you that the reports are bogus and illogical - but this is all because of the grand lie, that climate change is naturally occurring and the situation has nothing whatsoever to do with weather being used as a weapon, which it is. by their own hands.

Here's the data that tripped the computer. Since October 1st there's been 69 days warmer than the 1981-2010 normal and only 5 days at or below normal!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_cont ... voFDZQKJHc and http://www.arctic.noaa.gov/Report-Card/Report-Card-2017 paint a pretty grim picture of what's potentially to come.

The arctic situation is most interesting to me. The committed sea level rise we will see due to current CO2 levels (in our atmosphere) will be in excess of 1 meter.

We are not past the point of no return and I have personally watched interviews with NOAA researchers stating exactly this.
That title is incredibly sensationalised and I would recommend getting your information directly from the NOAA.
