ALASKA - A hungry polar bear stuck on land forced five scientists studying the effects of global warming to be airlifted away from their camp. Polar bears are becoming increasingly trapped on land well away from their usual seal prey, say biologists.

News just keeps getting sadder by the minute.I had hopes that the bears would be able to make some kind of progress to adapt.With only 500 or 600 left,their prognosis does not look good.Either they drown at Sea looking for food or they die on land where there is none.

Sad to say that most of the polar bears are going to drown [or become Alaska King crab food] or be caught by Killer whales. Those who are stranded on land will start attacking any warmblooded creature that walks into their path, or they will starve and die and become carrion for the Ravens.
Just recently a ledge of ice has broken off one of Canada's northern islands. Polar bears can only survive if they have ice to rest on, to hunt off of, so if the ice goes so will the bears.

That piece of ice has been big enough for all the polar bears in Canada!
The ice will be more than enough to survive and the polar bears that strand have to be relocated or shot! You know that Iceland shoots them....Canada will do the same!
Polar bears will adapt and they will just need protection from $arah and her fellow hunters!
Polar bears have no natural enemies at all! Only mankind and OIL! So lets make sure that trophy hunting and big oil leave them alone!

$arah knows exactly how to solve the Polar bear problem! TRUST HER! She can help the polar bear from starving to death!

this is so sad they are run out of their homes by global warming just to face death by man, they don't stand a chance unless people start speaking up for them. They have the right to live and to be free. If their home land is fading away then it is up to us to share our land with them so they can survive. What would this world be like without the beauty and grace of a polar bear they are one of the most beautiful creatures here on this earth, and it should be our gift not only to them but to our children and to our childrens children to help them survive so that they to can see their wonder.
