Promoters of Polar Bear Catastrophe in Hudson Bay Gloss Over Recent Good Ice Conditions

Finally, as for the suggestion of an imminent ‘zombie’ polar bear population in Western Hudson Bay, isn’t it funny that Derocher failed to point out that the slower-than-usual freeze-up of Hudson Bay this year is likely to be beneficial for polar bears?
