Sea World LIES

Having no shame about the hundreds of tonnes of greenhouse gases that they produce themselves by refrigerating a large outdoor pool to keep bears in a subtropical climate, or ignoring the simple fact that Polar Bear numbers have rebounded and are very healthy, or that despite the fact that astronomical global greenhouse gas output has produced no significant temperature rise yet, the Aussie Sea World have celebrated Polar Bear Day by claiming on Channel Nine that they are endangered . http://youtu.be/KR90M8AL5_s

The claim that there is a “dramatic decline in numbers in the wild” is a BLATANT LIE

Threatened? 
They are also threatened by an asteroid strike, which at present seems just as likely as human fossil fuel burning causing the planet to overheat, and the bears not being able to adapt to it.
Melting sea ice is obviously not going to threaten the whole species even if it does start melting and a few of them accidently drown.

This website contains huge amount of science from 35 years of research –
