Experts have been saying for years that Global Warming was decimating the polar bear population at the Arctic Circle, but a surprising find in a new book, ‘Never Look a Polar Bear in the Eye’, shows there are more polar bears alive today than in the last 40 years.
A hunting ban was put in place in 1972 as hunting was drastically reducing the population. Worldwide it’s estimated there are 25,000 polar bears living mostly on the northwest coast of Alaska, Canada, Greenland, the northern Russian coast and islands of the Norwegian coast. Polar bears came to the forefront when former Vice President Al Gore featured them in his global warming film ‘An Inconvenient Truth’, but the truth is, polar bears are doing just fine.
