Reference: Walruses suffer losses as sea ice erodes, Bangkok Post, January 11, 2010
It is a fanciful idea that carbon dioxide emissions are causing polar bears and walruses to die out (Walruses suffer losses as sea ice erodes, Bangkok Post, January 11, 2010) as the data show that their numbers are growing, not diminishing.The only threat to these creatures has been over hunting, not carbon dioxide. They have seen a lot worse than the 2007 summer melt and they are still around and thriving. Subsequent summer melts and winter recoveries in the Arctic after 2007 did not get progressively worse as predicted by the warmists but did exactly the opposite. It is possibly because they have been thus spurned by the ice data that the warmists are now playing the Bambi card with the spurious claim that our carbon dioxide emissions are harming cute and cuddly creatures.
