    EXCERPT:


    and,

    One geographically limited statistical outlier certainly doesn't disprove the averages. On average, there is less ice and the bear population overall hasn't recovered from the days when polar bears were over hunted. All things being equal, there should be many more times the number of polar bears than there currently are. One reason for this is warmer winters.

    I posted it because your link mentioned part of the Hudson bay, the same areas even.

    Go to this long polar bear thread that shows the evidence that Polar Bear population has been on the increase since 2004:

    Your link is to your own thread here on DP. The only link I saw in that thread was to a website called "No Tricks Zone." They are not a reputable source and are well known for spreading provably false information.

    The number and distribution of polar bears in the western Barents Sea

    Traditional Ecological Knowledge of Polar Bears in the Northern Eeyou Marine Region, Québec, Canada + Supplementary Appendix 1

    Inuit perspectives of polar bear research: lessons for community-based collaborations

    These are three examples of the many published papers posted in the link itself, too bad your bigotry got in the way. Too bad you are too lazy to notice what they linked to, therefore you have no argument against it.

    The evidence is clear, there has been an increase in Polar Bear numbers.

    Cheers.

    What a coincidence! So is sunsettommy!
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Sorry, but the record is clear. She has uniformly been right, and her critics have uniformly been wrong. Their silence is the silence of embarrassed exposure and damaged reputations. Until they concede their error and acknowledge her mastery, they remain compromised and lacking in credibility.

    Ah yes, the siren call of a climate change denier. What 'mastery', exactly? 'No Tricks Zone'. Seriously? Perhaps the New York Post would be a better source; y'know, aliens in your cornflakes and WW2 bombers found on the Moon, etc.

    Well, she’s got a blog.

    And published papers on evolutionary theory, a couple of which sorta mentioned polar bears, so that makes her a towering expert on population biology in denier minds.
