Polar bears no longer on ‘thin ice’: researchers say polar bears could face brighter future

Polar bears no longer on ‘thin ice’: researchers say polar bears could face brighter future. Hah, says Anthony Watts, Polar Bears are happy! The US Forest Service says so in a paper in Nature! (pay-walled) This means that there’s no Global Warming!

This is classic Anthony Watts misrepresentation. It’s funny how so much of what Anthony touts as evidence that refutes the predicted impacts of Global Warming is in fact the opposite. Here’s the first “key finding” of the paper (italics mine):

The results of modeling regional polar bear populations indicate a potentially brighter future for the species if global greenhouse gas concentrations can be kept under control at levels less than those expected under current conditions.
