The February report concedes that scientists still have limited scientific data about the polar bear population in many parts of the Arctic—lacking sufficient information to even determine whether the population is increasing or decreasing in 7 of 19 subpopulations.

See more scientific science fiction. This is a correction to the name scientist.

Even the Martians saw movies of polar bear habitats melting on Earth. Only a blind denier would dismiss the truth about the polar bears.

Deniers are fiddling with data while our home planet is burning and melting with our pollution, folks.

A polar bear wanders along the ice-free shoreline of Wrangel Island in the Russian High Arctic in early August, subsisting on his fat reserves and waiting for sea ice to form again. Although in the past the ice remained near the island all year round, enabling bears to hunt for seals even in late summer, now the ice recedes far away toward the central polar basin for several months during the melt season. Wrangel was once called a “polar bear maternity ward” because several hundred mother bears denned and raised their cubs on the remote island annually. But Nikita Ovsyanikov, a Russian scientist who has been observing the bears for many years, notes that use of Wrangel for maternity denning is declining, apparently as the result of climate change. His data indicate that a maximum of only 60 to 70 females give birth to cubs on the island now, whereas in the early 1990s there were approximately 350 to 400 maternity dens in active use there each year.

"fetid feces face flip flopper fiend" can't correct answers, even if it had a teacher's copy. But "fetid feces face flip flopper fiend" can copy its fiction.
