Latest Polar Bear Drowning Pictures

Alaskan Bears are having to wade through several feet of shallow puddles to get to the ice, causing thousands of premature drownings.

    They must be liberal bears. Liberals are the only idiots than can drown in 2 inches of water.

    Don’t worry for one minute about those polar bears. They are monster predators. They can swim for miles. Hundreds of miles.

    “A total of 20 bears tracked from 2004 to 2009 repeatedly embarked on long-distance journeys, with an average length of 96 miles.

    One bear was able to swim 220 miles, while another covered an astonishing 420 miles non-stop over the course of ten days.”

    If you check out the article, naturally it has the latest twaddle about declining sea ice, baby polar bear anecdotes, blah, blah, blah. But polar bears can swim 100s of miles. One was clocked swimming at 25 mph. Monsters. Stay. Away. They will hunt you. Eat you. Kill you.

    This is weird. Wunderground showed a current (at 5:21pm local time) temp for Barrow as 11C, yet the “high” for the day was 1, and the hourly graph shows the high as 7, at 4:42.

    Now it currently shows 5.6 What gives?

    Barrow had near shore ice only as of end of June, when I was there. The ocean was clear.
    There was about 1000 feet of near shore ice, which the locals indicated stays because it is frozen to the bottom. That ice does gradually melt, so there were multiple leads and open water patches, with plenty of seals on the ice, but apparently it gets blown away only as it becomes unstuck.
    Meanwhile the local hunters have a hard time dragging their boats across 1000 feet of ice and slush before they can reach open water and hunt. My guess would be that the near shore ice could ride up or down along the shoreline, so one day of open water might be followed by more near shore ice, until it is all gone, maybe sometime in August.

    • The ice is contiguous from Barrow to Svalbard now.

        As you say, north from Point Barrow, which is a few miles from the town, the satellites show continuous ice. I could not tell because the fog kept visibility there down to a few hundred feet, so all I saw was shore ice.
        However, the ocean past the shore ice was quite open to the west, which is the direction Barrow faces.

      Three or so days ago there was only as much ice as there is open water in the Barrow Ice Cam photo above.
      I seem to remember Steven this year (and Reggie and his people last year) mentioning something about Arctic pack ice being blown all over the Arctic this time of year like ice cubes in Gaia’s cocktail shaker.

      Log on to the Barrow Ice Cam sight and read the explanation about Sea Ice, Pressure Ridge Ice, and Near Shore or Shore Fast Ice. It will quickly become obvious to anyone whose brain hasn’t been eaten away by Alarmist cries of doom that Sea Ice is almost as hard to predict Artic wide as Earth’s climate is difficult to predict by fumbling with Al Gore’s Ouija board.
