I hope the bear wins.

You know, i always found it amusing that we humans always saw when a species was becoming dangerously overpopulated in it's native area, and in so doing would endanger the environment with their increased numbers upsetting the delicate balance of the ecosystem, and feel the need to control it in various ways, most usually in forced contraception and culling.


Except where humans are concerned.

Actually, there isn't a lot of derp. The author clearly points out that polar bear populations are threatened by global warming and loss of habitat. He also correctly points out that populations are declining in some places and possibly growing in others. He furthermore is clear on the case for making polar bears an endangered species (in part of their range, at least). All in all, the article is fair and well-balanced despite the stupid "hook", which may nonetheless be a true story.

Grand_Moff_Joseph: Sure, populations are holding steady in some areas, but overall, that trend is not sustainable.  More and more mothers are having single cub litters (when 2-3 used to be the norm), and the lack of food and ice has shot cub mortality rates through the roof.  Top that off with later and thinner ice formations, and 50+ mile swims to find solid ice to hunt from, and the populations will soon take a nose dive.


Do you need a license to predict the future?
Or can just anyone play?

They compare the number of polar bears alive today with the number of that were alive when they were being exterminated by hunters. They don't consider what the polar bear's numbers would be without human influence or in what direction the population is trending.

Remember, we're talking about people that would pee in the pool and say it's clean because it was worse that time they took a dump in the water.

And it appears polar bears are up for today's "Republican totally misses the point" story.
