How Did The Hudson Bay Polar Bears Survive the Peak Ice Years?

We are told that Hudson Bay bears starve to death if there is no ice in November, yet most of the peak ice years of 1979-1983 had little or no Hudson Bay ice in November. All of the bears must have died because of too little ice – when ice was at its peak.

Or is it possible that – once again – the climate science community is completely FOS.

    There’s a common formula for this.
    The more ‘green’ someone is, the dumber they think animals are and the more they attribute instincts and patterns than intelligence………

    Good question!

    And how did the polar bears survive when there was even less ice, like during the Holocene Optimum?
    Could it be that polar bears are rather adept at accommodating their lives to changing environmental circumstances? They have, for example, become pretty good at sniffing out canned food left behind by expeditions and getting into said cans.

    I am unaware of canned food occurring naturally during the MWP, say.

    It is a pity that the cAWG religionists know so little about the mental capacities of their poster animal.
    Perhaps they should talk to some Inuit – oh noes, that would mean leaving their warm computer labs …

    http://www.astrobio.net/exclusive/3702/the-day-the-algae-died wow lets do stories on the extinctions 250million years ago. Next week’s special “What if the Sun explodes”?

    How did and where did polar bears live when the ice was at maximum? If the entire Artic, Canada, Siberia, Europe and etc was covered with ice did the polar bears live in Indiana?

      They lived in New York City and San Francisco. Maybe even Seattle during periods of minimum ice.
      I heard it is getting so warm the polar bears are moving south!

  5. They swam to the UK and vacationed there.

    Polar bears have been around for only about 220,000 years, two glaciation cycles. I wonder how they survived that, and why are they such a young species. They are just white ‘brown bears’, who figured out white was better to hide from seals.

    If polar bears disappeared, can’t we just get more brown bears to move north during the next inter-glacial? That is if humans make it through the next ice age, which isn’t a sure thing.

    What is, has not always been, nor will it always be. I have been to Hudson Bay, and a real polar bear up close and personal is a sight to see. You want to have a very large gun while observing, they fear nothing.

      Luckily I was just out of range of a Grizzly in Yellowstone. I have seen a stuffed full sized Polar Bear also and I am not in a hurry to get acquainted with either up close and personal like.

      “If polar bears disappeared, can’t we just get more brown bears to move north during the next inter-glacial?”

      Good idea, and while we are at it can we put some birds on a remote Islands, I really miss the Dodo.

    I don’t know what FOS means. How sad is that?

  8. Whatever the reason is you better get it peer reviewed.
