Arctic Ice Is Even Thinner, Survey Discovers
Polar bears become cannibals as their hunting grounds shrink
The thin ice polar bears have been on because of global warming is actually thinner than we thought, according to a Canadian researcher.
A ship survey debunked recent satellite data that suggested an improvement in Arctic ice conditions. Instead of thick ice reported by satellite, the ship found thin ice — too thin for polar bears to stand on. Consequently, there were fewer polar bears.
That alarming news was followed a report that, as a result of the lessening sea ice, starving adult polar bears are eating bear cubs.
