Arctic Ice Is Even Thinner, Survey Discovers
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.
