Polar bears shrinking, eating each other due to global warming

By the blogowner, honestclimate, March 19, 2009

Is there anything global warming can’t do?

POTENTIALLY fatal to the polar bear, global warming has already left its mark on the species with smaller, less robust bears that are increasingly showing cannibalistic tendencies.

The primary observation is that as the sea ice shrinks away, so are the polar bears – they’re not growing as big as they used to.

Climate change also appears to have altered the bears’ behavioural patterns.

Several recent incidents of cannibalism in Alaska have observers worried.

Global Cooling great for polar bears, but birds stressed by the cold weather

By the blogowner, honestclimate, January 11, 2009

The weather across Europe may be more akin to the Arctic, but at least one resident of the Berlin Zoo is enjoying the icy temperatures.

Berlin's legendary polar bear, Knut, was in his element in the snow and ice, playing ball with zoo visitors and wandering around his enclosure.

Birds stressed by cold weather

Icy Somerset Levels

Important feeding areas have been frozen over since Christmas

Wintering birds on the Somerset Levels are under stress due to the prolonged cold weather and the public are being asked not to disturb them.

Natural England is asking people to stay away from lakes and riverbanks so that the birds can conserve their energy and are not forced into flight.

Birds such as ducks, swans and waders have been unable to feed and roost due to the frozen ground.

Voluntary restraint on licensed shooting has also been requested.

2008 has been a great year for Polar Bears!

Chilling

By the blogowner, honestclimate, October 29, 2008

Not only is the world no warmer today than it was in 1998, the decrease in global temperatures in 2008 has been massive. The UK Met Office has said 2008 is set be the coldest year this century(this may well be the only climate prediction they get right!). With record cold temperatures being set around the world and the arctic ice now 30% over last year, it truly has been a great year for polar bears!

BS Alert: Polar bear hearing affected to due global warming?

From Watts Up with That?, September 30, 2008

From the BBC, a video report so absurd, you wonder if it is an April fools joke. The premise? Noise from excessive ice calving and cracking due to “climate change” would affect the bear’s hearing. I wonder what agency was gullible enough to provide a grant for this load of rubbish? Like polar bears have never heard ice floes cracking and calving before? Give me a break. Plus, the polar bear they are using for a test subject isn’t in it’s natural environment, it’s at a zoo and who’s to say this bear establishes a credible baseline hearing test? This is just unbelievable stupidity in the guise of bad science. What next? Hearing aids for polar bears?
