Hudson Bay Ice Breaking Up Early-Polar Bears at Risk?

Posted Mar. 20th, 2010 by Daniel J. Cox

Take a look at a mini video I shot today. A friend of ours flew to Hawaii for a wedding we’re attending. She spoke to me about the melting ice on Hudson Bay. International flights fly over Hudson Bay on their way to the US coming from Europe. Robert Buchanan of Polar Bears International talked to me earlier this week that reports were coming in that the ice on Hudson Bay is breaking up much earlier than anyone has ever heard of. Polar Bears in this region may be forced off the ice months ahead of their normal time. I thought this mini-interview with someone who saw the broken ice first hand would be of interest to those of you who follow the plight of the polar bear due to climate change. It was +40F in Churchill this week. Usually it’s -40F. Big changes on the way.
