Obama Takes a Hard Line Against Leaks to Press

Obama Takes a Hard Line Against Leaks to Press 12 Jun 2010 Though Thomas A.

Polar Bear Capital of World Could Lose Its Bears

Polar Bear Capital of World Could Lose Its Bears By Jake Richardson 13 Jun 2010 Recently a polar bear researcher from the University of Alberta said the population of polar bears around Churchill [Manitoba] could dwindle so low that it may not be able to sustain itself. Climate change [global warming] is reportedly causing there to be less and less ice for the bears to hunt seals upon. With less ice, the bears will not be able to find food, and without food their chances of reproducing become so small, they may not survive. Mr. Stirling, the researcher, said, "Missing out on only two of those meals every year is enough to cause a polar bear’s body weight to decline to the point where females produce underweight cubs or no cubs at all."
