#1 "polar bears are starving, drowning, even resorting to cannibalism"

Oh, ferchrissakes, dumbass - polar bear can SWIM.

And why are the polar bears even around, if what you say is true? Why didn't earlier even warmer periods send the polar bears into extinction?

#2 "Polar bears cut off from penguin supply because of melting ice."

So do you want ice between North Pole and South Pole?

#3 More likely due to overpopulation.

#4 Polar bears survived the warming trend around 1000 when it was 3-4 deg C warmer than now, they survived the warming trend that happened 5000 years ago, they will survive long after our generation is ashes.

More scare tactics from the now desperate greens to be noticed. Sorry chums, people look after their shrinking money in their wallet and look out for themselves now instead of listening to you.

#6 I think the staple of a Polar Bear diet is fish. This entire article is nonsense.

#8 Fish, seals, and whatever they can catch.

The thing is, Polar Bears will swim long distances in search of food. Like from the limits of the icepack down to Iceland. (I think this happened earlier this year, where the authorities pointed out that it was the first time in twenty years or so that it had happened... and then shot the bear. We're supposed to be doing all sorts of stuff to ourselves and deindustrializing to save the Polar Bear. Hey guys, what about y'all just stop shooting at them?)

#9 Maybe when it's starved and lost all fat, the bear sinks . . . .
