Polar bears will die out if global warming is not reversed, US report finds

July 3, 2015 by legitgov

Polar bears will die out if global warming is not reversed, US report finds | 02 July 2015 | Polar bears will be wiped out if humans don't reverse the trend of global warming, according to a blunt report by the US government. In a draft recovery plan for polar bears produced by the US Fish and Wildlife Service, it says: "The single most important step for polar bear conservation is decisive action to address Arctic warming. Short of action that effectively addresses the primary cause of diminishing sea ice, it is unlikely that polar bears will be recovered." Polar bears eat, mate and give birth on sea ice. Greenhouse gas emissions contribute to global warming, which is reducing the levels of summer sea ice in the Arctic. No sea ice means polar bears will struggle to survive.
