Alaskan Polar Bears Threatened…By Too Much Spring Ice

(CNSNews.com) – Five meters of ice– about 16 feet thick – is threatening the survival of polar bears in the Southern Beaufort Sea region along Alaska’s Arctic coast, according to Dr. Susan J. Crockford, an evolutionary biologist in British Columbia who has studied polar bears for most of her 35-year career.

That’s because the thick ice ridges could prevent ringed seals, the bears’ major prey, from creating breathing holes they need to survive in the frigid waters, Crockford told CNSNews.com.

“Prompted by reports of the heaviest sea ice conditions on the East Coast ‘in decades’ and news that ice on the Great Lakes is, for mid-April, the worst it’s been since records began, I took a close look at the ice thickness charts for the Arctic,” Crockford noted in her Polar Bear Science blog on April 18th.

There’s a bit more good information at the link, such as the most recent poley bear estimate is a crock, but, Suyts readers already knew that.  Also, there’s a revelation that the poley bears simply move to where the food is.  Bears are weird like that. 

But, the most important thing to note about this is that the pretenders and usurpers of the mantle of science are being exposed for the idiotic loser lunatics that they are.  I think, soon, we’ll be able to put this jackassery lunacy called “global warming” behind us and relegate it to being a footnote in history, noting there was a quasi-religious movement which pretended to be concerned about our environment.  But, it turned out to be a bunch of Malthusian Marxist misanthropists.

    I guess Polly bears need Goldilocks ice?

    Laughed when a Laker limped back to dry-dock to be thawed and fixed after playing in the ice with three CG ice-‘breakers …trying to get through to the Sault Ste Marie Locks.(at any cost?) to
    get the shipping season under way.
    Seems to me the seals might move their amorous rendezvous out to where the ice was thinner so they could bust their air-holes…I mean it’s not likely they’d last long close to shore where the ice is thickest if they COULDN,T BREATH…and the poley bears would go out there to hunt..

      I’m sure they’re computer- modeling some more breathing holes as we speak.

    • HankH says:

      That’s what I was thinking too. They act like the ice ends at the water’s edge as a 16 foot cliff. That, or the poley bears are too stupid to walk a few extra miles out to where the seals are creating their breathing holes.

    told you so…..Spencer is a warmest

    See his post on WUWT

    • Jim Masterson says:

      I agree with most of his points except number nine. He obviously doesn’t know that temperature is an intensive thermodynamic property. It only applies to states that are in equilibrium. The equation (holding everything else constant) for internal energy is dU = T*dS. (Where U is internal energy, T is temperature, and S is entropy.)

      Temperature and entropy form a conjugate pair WRT energy. Therefore, T = dU/dS. I’ve never seen anything in climatology that addresses this relationship. (Entropy is an extensive thermodynamic property.)

      • Latitude says:

        Jim, he made up those strawman points…..
        #7….is the biggest by the way it’s framed
        It’s not really why did it rise….the question is why isn’t it being taken up at the same rate it was before

        • Jim Masterson says:

          Well #7 is a tough cookie. I think “we don’t know” would be a better point (NASA’s new carbon satellite–should be CO2 satellite–notwithstanding). I do agree that more CO2 is better, however.

          Jim

    • suyts says:

      Sigh, I hate it when luke-warmers do that. Jim, you’re entirely correct, but, because you’re correct about #9, it also means Spencer is wrong about many other things he had to so.

      Lat, the easiest response to Spencer’s #7 sophistry is that he assumes the Vostok ice core record is representative of the entire earth for thousands of years. We all know that vacant stupidity. Ground level CO2 levels vary by hundreds of ppm depending upon where one is.

      In one of his linked explanations, he mentions pressure broadening as one of the reasons why more CO2 makes a difference. Has anyone demonstrated increased atmospheric pressure? If so, then he and a whole host of other people are referencing altitude incorrectly, as he did in one of the “reasons” reference altitude by pressure. But, he was wrong there, as well. This is why I don’t read WUWT much anymore…… well, I wouldn’t if I could see properly. There’s a lot more wrong with the post, but, I won’t bother with it.

      • Jim Masterson says:

        >>
        . . . pressure broadening as one of the reasons why more CO2 makes a difference.
        <<

        He meant “partial pressure.” The partial pressure of a gas increases as its relative concentration increases.

        Jim

        • suyts says:

          Jim, I don’t believe at sea level, a room of air with 300 ppm of a gas will absorb at smaller bands than a room of equal volume anymore then a room of 400 ppm. Yes, the partial pressure would increase, because of the volume of the gas in relation to the rest of the gases, but, if the total pressure is the same it’s not going to absorb at greater bands because there’s more.

        • Jim Masterson says:

          I don’t disagree, James. I was just clarifying what Dr. Spencer was trying to say. Yes , the partial pressure of CO2 is increasing. Does it have an effect? Probably nothing one can measure.

          Jim

        • suyts says:

          I see. Yeh, I should have directed that at Spencer. Thanks for the clarity.

          I don’t understand posts like what Spencer offered. To be sure, he struck upon some contentious issues, which is fine. And, to be sure, he’s correct in much that he says. But, he’s inconsistent in the post in it’s toto. He argues against misapplying the 2nd law of thermodynamics, but, misapplies Dalton’s, and seems to ignore Amagat’s. Which would be fine, if that wasn’t exactly some of the subjects he was writing about. I like Dr. Sperncer, but, he missed the mark there.

          Spencer created friction when there wasn’t a need. And, he knew he would. It’s one of the many things I love about this blog. And, will, soon again resume. At Suyts, we can have points of contention without friction. …. sometimes there is friction, but, that’s just people’s own thing.

      • Latitude says:

        What would the temp of the planet be….if we hadn’t added all that CO2?

        For one thing, they keep tricking people with those inflated blown up microscopic charts…
        We haven’t added enough CO2 to make a difference.

        • cdquarles says:

          I don’t know, but I doubt it would be measurably different. Wake me up when they start doing air column carbon dioxide sounding.

    • Jim Masterson says:

      Notice that Dr. Spencer is waffling on #9 now.

      AND NONE of the other candidate stood up for him. INCLUDING the woman he was defending. 😦

    • kim2ooo says:

      “Nigel’s a great reporter, a Pulitzer winner, in fact.”

      Yeah, and Obama won a Nobel Prize 3 hours after he sat down in the Oval Office.

      • DirkH says:

        Pulitzer = professional liar.

        Bill whittle detailing the lies of the NYT’s Walter Duranty about the Holodomor. Duranty got a Pulitzer for that.

        • kim2ooo says:

          That is a great UTUBE.. Thank you!

        • DirkH says:

          Stalin thought, I have tractors now (due to Albert Kahn’s factories built for the first 5 year plan of the USSR), I don’t need peasants anymore; so he sold all the grain to Germany for more industrial goods, and let them starve to death. Very depressing; shows that Stalin was simply satanic.

        • DirkH says:

          It recently occured to me that Cenk Uygur’s show “Young Turks”, formerly on Current TV, now somewhere, is named after a genocidal movement:
          http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Young_Turks
          They killed the Armenians (and the Greek in Lydia, but that is never mentioned because it is forgotten).
