Scientists: Dramatic sea ice loss by 2050


"...An analysis of 20 years' worth of real-life observations supports recent U.N. computer predictions that by 2050, summer sea ice off Alaska's north coast will probably shrink to nearly half the area it covered in the 1980s, federal scientists say."

"...The situation is dire for polar bears, said Kassie Siegel of the Center for Biological Diversity, who wrote the petition seeking federal protection for the animals.

"They're going to drown, they're going to starve, they're going to resort to cannibalism, they're going to become extinct," she said."

It always saddens me so, and makes me feel so helpless, to know that the world I am living in now, will not be the world of the future.

The extintion of the Polar Bear is only a marker of many of the horrors the young children of today will face on our changing planet in the near future of tomorrow. We have ruined the great planet Earth.

How very sad.
