I'm shocked, thought we would all be flooded and the polar bears would be drowned out by now.

National Geographic circulated this video, back in 2017. Took the footage in July...released it in December (for "maximum effect"). This bear was deathly ill, and the local Inuits said Climate change had little to do with his demise. Cherry picked, to start a Climate Change frenzy...and, since it was 2017, it was all Trump's fault, lol !

There is no easy death for a polar bear. Just like a lion or wolf. Top of the food chain goes in ugly fashion. But we already all know that :)

"https://mosj.no/en/indikator/fauna/marine-fauna/polar-bear/"

The Broad conclusion from that study:

"An aerial survey to estimate the size of the shared Norwegian-Russian Barents Sea subpopulation was carried out in 2004, and the resulting estimate was 2650 bears +/- ca 30 %. A new survey of the Norwegian part of the population was conducted in August 2015, and the results do not show any sign of a reduction in population size".

So...it prefaces with how Climate Change is wreaking havoc with the Polar Bear Population, and ends saying their has been no change in the Population in the last 11 years....

elkmtgear, yes. They started with a hypothesis, tested it and found it to be in error. The scientific method.
