Gradual Arctic Frost Could Drive Polar Bear Extinction

Ice melts faster than it freezes in the Arctic leaving polar bears little or no place at all to live and give birth. Global warming hastens the melting of ice in the Arctic region but it takes longer to reach freezing point. This event spells extinction for the polar bears. The dawdling freezing of several Arctic regions this winter gave pregnant polar bears a hard
