It doesn't matter what is causing it . OK BSK and TWRA guys what great danger is it in putting a few Polar Bears at the South Pole now so they will be around to hunt in the future??? Two-thirds of the world's polar bears could disappear by 2050 as global warming continues to melt the Arctic's sea ice, according to a series of U.S. government studies released last Friday. http://www.tndeer.com/tndeertalk/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=440798&page=0#Post440798

I was planning to go in 2010...guess I had better bump it up a couple of years, before the nut jobs put them on the endangered list! I really need one of those standing in my den.

locksley you might find these facts interesting: The film claims that melting snows on Mount Kilimanjaro evidence global warming. The Government’s expert was forced to concede that this is not correct.
The film suggests that evidence from ice cores proves that rising CO2 causes temperature increases over 650,000 years. The Court found that the film was misleading: over that period the rises in CO2 lagged behind the temperature rises by 800-2000 years.
The film uses emotive images of Hurricane Katrina and suggests that this has been caused by global warming. The Government’s expert had to accept that it was “not possible” to attribute one-off events to global warming.
The film shows the drying up of Lake Chad and claims that this was caused by global warming. The Government’s expert had to accept that this was not the case.
The film claims that a study showed that polar bears had drowned due to disappearing arctic ice. It turned out that Mr Gore had misread the study: in fact four polar bears drowned and this was because of a particularly violent storm.
The film threatens that global warming could stop the Gulf Stream throwing Europe into an ice age: the Claimant’s evidence was that this was a scientific impossibility.
The film blames global warming for species losses including coral reef bleaching. The Government could not find any evidence to support this claim.
The film suggests that sea levels could rise by 7m causing the displacement of millions of people. In fact the evidence is that sea levels are expected to rise by about 40cm over the next hundred years and that there is no such threat of massive migration.
The film claims that rising sea levels has caused the evacuation of certain Pacific islands to New Zealand. The Government are unable to substantiate this and the Court observed that this appears to be a false claim.
Sorry for the length guys

It seems that the worry is for the penguins in south america . The little birds will be bear food.

One of the major biological concerns in the world today is the introduction of invasive species into ecosystems which have no natural defenses. Try to envision the scenario of polar bears encountering penguin rookeries around the Antarctic. It would be catastrophic.
