In the case of the polar bear, the federal government’s most comprehensive study on the state of polar bears determined that there will be no polar bears left in Alaska by 2050 — hardly the “distant future.” This prediction is based on climate models that, if anything, underestimate the rate of sea-ice decline.
We can see the shocking sea ice decline in this image, taken at Barrow on July 22, 2012. The climate models predicted that the ice would retreat only 40 yards, when in fact it has retreated 50 yards. Even the strongest bears can’t swim more than 49 yards.
