Polar Bears Extinct by 2050

The U.S. Geological Survey reported last week that two-thirds of the world's polar bears could vanish by 2050 if melting sea ice predictions prove accurate.

Worse, sea ice in the Arctic might be disappearing faster than the computer models predict due to global warming, making the polar bear more imperiled. It is clear global warming threatens polar bears with extinction and they need to be protected under the Endangered Species Act.

I was wondering about that myself, and polar bears are not the only animals in danger due to the shrinking Arctic ice. There has to be a plan to save them and others before it's too late. For their sake and ours, let's hope that predictions about Arctic ice disappearing during summers by 2050 aren't accurate.

@alvin-thanks for stopping by. I think the predictions about the Arctic ice disappearing are conservative if anything. The northwest passage is now open.
