Polar Bears Endangered

Polar Bears are in trouble. It is easy to see the link between global warming and polar bear extinction.  Polar bears hunt on sea ice. Global Warming causes the melting of sea ice.  With less sea ice there is less room for the bears to hunt on. Polar bears can only swim for relatively short distances.  Some of them drown.  Some of them turn to cannibalism.  The female bears don’t have enough weight to produce milk so the cubs die.  The situation is grim.  Something needs to be done.   They have finally been listed as threatened (not endangered).  What are we waiting for? Two-thirds of Polar Bears may be gone in the next 30-40 years!
