Polar bears have increased in population from about 8,000 in the 70’s to 30,000 to 40,000 at present. Your suggestion is alarmist and unfounded. And regarding warming, the last 10 years have been cooling, arctic ice is now thicker by about 20cm than it has been in decades. World temps have been so cold the last 12 months that the 1 degree c increase of the last 100 years has been erased. So relax it will be OK.
