Is Global Warming Killing the Polar Bears?

It may be the latest evidence of global warming: Polar bears are drowning. Scientists for the first time have documented multiple deaths of polar bears off Alaska, where they likely drowned after swimming long distances in the ocean amid the melting of the Arctic ice shelf. The bears spend most of their time hunting and raising their young on ice floes.

Comment: Global Warming

The Kilinailau Islands—also known as the Tulu Islands, or the Carteret Atoll—which lie four hundred miles from the coast of Papua New Guinea, are tiny low, and impoverished. Their fate, thanks to global warming, has long been a foregone conclusion. I 1995, most of the shoreline of Piul and Huene washed away, and the island of Iolasa was cut in half by the sea. Saltwater intrusion has now reached the point where islanders can no longer grow breadfruit, an have to rely on emergency food aid. Last month Reuters reported that the decision had finally bee made to give up. The islands' two thousand resident are being relocated, at the expense of the Papua New Guinean government, to the slightly higher ground o Bougainville Island, some sixty miles to the southwest.
