Global Warming- Cute but Sad Video

Polar bears are progressively emerging as threatened due to several factors including industry activities, ice in their natural environment melting, and human interaction. By a long way the greatest culprit is the modification in the natural world of the polar bear. Various life-threatening situations are created for these cold weather bears when the ice melts. World-wide warming that is tied to industrialization and tasks such as driving a vehicle, burning coal, and additional human projects creates the ice melting.

The Bear Basics
Polar bears are a enormous animals that make their homes on the frozen Arctic marine. The bears are going to shell out the majority of their lives on the ice. Males are able to increase up to ten feet in span as well as weigh in at over 1,300 pounds! The bears are actually carnivores, meaning they consume the meat of additional Arctic pets. At present there are predicted to be only 20 to 50 thousands polar bears left in the wild. They are actually on the Endangered Animal List.

When polar bears are actually on land they are actually more most likely to pertain face-to-face with a predator, people. Frequently individuals hunt polar bears as trophies and more people eradicate polar bears while defending themselves. People more influence polar bears when companies construct facilities in their natural environment, consequently adjusting it irrevocably.

That Is actually Helping, and Exactly how
Major contributors to the match to conserve the Arctic Polar Bear include the Coca-Cola Company as well as the Globe Wildlife Fund. All together these businesses are actually raising cash to analysis which is creating international climate change as well as working by having governmental bureaus to manage greenhouse gas discharges. Additional major jobs consist of efforts to eliminate unfavorable mortal interactions including poaching as well as extreme tourism and safeguarding vital environment spaces such as birthing dens.

    Will the extinction of polar bears affect the world? Will it affect us humans in anyway?

  • Starwarsguy says:

    Coca Cola will need to find new mascots

  • Ian says:

    Did they change the definition of extinct to mean the population is increasing?

  • Jayman says:

    Are the polar bears doomed to extinction? Global warming causing shrinking habitat.

  • unwritten says:

    yes…within time polar bears will be extinct. Mainly, due to the melting ice caps caused by the increase of temperature of earth (global warming).

  • cayla says:

    yes, sadly. they are drowning. :-(

  • zackis2cool says:

    Yes it is very sad to see an animal go. :(

  • peach says:

    Naturally occuring or man made,fact is,our Earth is changing.And changing fast.Never in recorded history have the glaciers melted. Our Earth is over populated by humans.Only a deadly pandemic can fix that.

  • Robert H says:

    I dont think they are saying that the Polar Bears numbers are dwindling now – and yes there are plenty of polar bears. What they are saying is that Global warming is happening so fast there that once the ice melts they will drop in number very fast, and that can cause extinction.

  • BrOoKe767 says:

    Okay how did people know how warm it was back when the “great warm” happened because back then they wouldn’t have nearly the amount of technology that we have today it it wouldn’t be even close to as accurate. Polar Bears are going extinct even though their numbers are rising, only very slowly. Due to Global Warming Polar Bears are going to have to get used to living in a jacuzzi formally known as the Artic.

  • bsquared says:

    Is global climate change going to cause human extinction? I have been reading, and there is no denying a change in climate. I don’t want to hear about polar bears, species have been going extinct for billions of years. I’m sure the first people of the planet were distraught to find no mammoth, but I’m sure they didn’t miss sabre tooth tigers eating them. Climate change will change the coastline and our weather, but is it going to kill us, or will our coasts just move, and our humanity adjust and survive?

  • Cirric says:

    Hi. Hard to say. With the exception of current species, ALL species even formed have become extinct. Just part of the process. Certainly our over-population is not sustainable, with or without climate change.

    http://www.ktvu.com/globalwarming/9410704/detail.html This is a link I found. I have heard that the Earth has a “fever,” which is startling scientists right now. The scientists have been watching the migration of plankton (which live in the warmest of waters in the south). The plankton are moving north, because the warm waters that they like are getting too warm. Also, I have been keeping track of this “fever,” which is also going to kill off most of the 6 billion people living on this planet, leaving about less than a tenth. Do not quote me to these estimations, these are just things I have read as I have been following the developments. Read some of the things that Al Gore have been saying. He’s trying to make people aware of this this planet is going through.

  • Dwain says:

    We will adjust and recover. Hopefully enough of our records will survive to remind us as a species not to engage in fanciful flights of technological utopianism.

  • It won’t be climate change making you extinct.

  • mountaingym says:

    Just look at how long global warming has been going on: the last Ice Age ended 11,000 years ago. In that time frame humankind has increased from several million (just a guess, I don’t know the real number of humans 11,000 years ago) to over 6 billion. I don’t see how climate change has hurt us yet.

  • Zhuge L says:

    It could be if warming trends continue, but on the other hand, it could be bad for all parties involved. For instance, a hypothetical: penguins exist in relative peace without the concern of many predators. Bears could conceivably feast on these birds, dwindling the population of penguins, causing the bears’ population to explode, and in turn starving the bears due to overpopulation and lack of food. It would be devastating for both species, and possibly others as well. Chain reactions are part of what’s causing the melting (solar-reflecting ice replaced by solar-absorbing water), and it definitely applies to ecosystems as well. Ecosystems are delicate and evolve over time with built in checks and balances — even small organisms can wreak havoc when thrown into one. Inserting a new species, especially a large predator, is something to do with great care. The sad truth is, as reports have said, polar bears may be extinct outside of zoos in within the century.

  • I’m sorry but the polar bears are goners… I wish it wasn’t so… But there are plenty of things we can do to reverse anthropogenic global warming: http://wisepagan.com/article003.html And there is PLENTY of Hard Science to show us that we are causing Global Warming: The Official Site of the IPCC: http://www.ipcc.ch/present/graphics.htm Also – know your enemy – it is the AAPG – American Association of Petroleum Geologists and Lockheed Martin. These two organizations are behind the “don’t believe in it” propaganda. Their motive is simple – keep America from switching to Green Energy. Do you ever wonder why we aren’t allowed to buy all the electric cars that have been invented over the years? It is because the oil companies have powerful lobbyists to make sure it doesn’t happen. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Association_of_Petroleum_Geologists

  • Sascha says:

    yes, but the penguins won’t like it.

  • linlyons says:

    Sasha has it right. the penguins will get mighty upset. you might note that nothing in the arctic that polar bears eat, spends any time far from water. if whatever it is cannot jump right in, it’s dinner. penguins won’t stand a chance. unfortunately.

  • crash says:

    polar bears have been around for 250,000 years they made it through the last warm period 130,000 when the arctic had a sub tropical climate, maybe they like to eat alligators as well as seals? Al Gore “hints” that the polar bears are becoming extinct. when in fact their population has been increasing for more than 10 years.(research polar bear population figures) he uses polar bears because people think their cute, warm & fuzzy & theres verry little life in the arctic to make an example of. in real life polar bears would see you as lunch if you were up there.

  • Daniel S says:

    Try not caring and screw the report altogether

  • Since polar bear populations are either stable or increasing, those claiming that they are nearing extinction are either liars or fools. I will leave it to you to decide which of these Al Gore is.
