Caleb Thornton:

It looks like you failed to do a little fact checking before writing your article. No big deal, I understand with finals coming up and all.

Anyway, you say that polar bears are dying from global warming — well, the population of polar bears is increasing, according the latest survey by the Canadian government.

Currently the population is at 2,100 bears. In the 1980s, the population was around 800. That is a 262.5 percent increase.

Maybe all those greenhouse gasses are collecting in the Arctic Circle and magically turning into new bears.
