One Day in Hudson Bay

Two days ago I posted on Resurging Arctic Ice, and noted that most of the deficit to average was in Barents Sea and Hudson Bay.  Look what happened yesterday in Hudson Bay.

Now compare to the day before

2016 Arctic ice extent has now topped 12M km2, and continues to close in on the average for the last decade.

Sea Ice Index from NOAA is running more than 400k km2 behind. But the polar bears know the truth, and it has set them free.

    Lol on the pic of the “cuddly” poplar bear.

    Got me thinking about how the polar bears can’t be trained to be like movie actors, unlike Grizzly Bears. I don’t think it’s that polar bear brains are any smaller per se but that their brains are limbicly hard-wired to be meat eating machines, and they can’t think of anything else. Even with lifelong training it’s impossible for them to think of humans as fellow actors; in humans they see nothing but food, like crisp taquitos.
