The Effects of Climate Change on Canadian Polar Bears Although climate change has had severe impact on the Canadian population, the melting of the Canadian Arctic ice caps has proved to be detrimental to the five subpopulations of polar bears in Canada, which are found in the Arctic Archipelago, Beaufort Sea, Hudson Bay and James Bay region. (Clark). Polar bears are dependent upon sea ice coverage to be consistent, and because of the recent change in climate, they are becoming a more at risk species (Stirling and Parkinson). In The Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change of the United Nations, they reported that the world climate change will continue to warm, it will only get worse and the primary cause of
When bears hibernate, they won’t wake up if they are touched, moved, or if there is a really loud noise. Bears will get their dens ready in late fall. To hibernate, bears need a full stomach. If they don’t get the food they need they will keep coming for food which is not good. They are so hungry that they ruined someone’s apple orchard.
(Vienna’s coldest weather will not do any harm to them as they are genetically used to - 20 and more). Secondly, the Penguins were swimming around the coasts of the pool, often guided by the people passing by. This behaviour is an obvious limitation for the Penguins. As in the wildlife they are more used to swimming freely in larger areas. (As they can dive for more than 150m).
and cultural identity. Nunavut territory, an area which encompasses 20% of the total landmass of Canada, the population is rapidly increasing, and will have almost doubled by 2020, (almost 50% in only 10 years) and is characterized by a young demographic, of which 85% of identity as Inuit. There are other important social factors affecting these communities, such as wealth inequality, substance misuse, and high unemployment. Education is key to employment in this region, in fact, the Canadian government decrees a minimum level of academic achievement, and English literacy, as a pre-requisite for the majority of employment opportunities. Moreover, this huge land expanse lacks infrastructure, reducing mobility for the population.
It is common knowledge that sea ice has been melting rapidly within the last decade. This rapid decrease in sea ice has many detrimental effects. This includes the rise in sea level, loss of arctic environments for animals, and the change in weather patterns. Ice is lighter in color so it reflects much of the sunlight that is put out. When open water is revealed from ice melt it is darker in color so it absorbs more sunlight, leading to that rapid melting of ice that we see today.
The Vikings first raided and then settled in the city of Waterford around 914 AD. They gave the name Waterford to the city, which derives from the Old Norse word, “Vedrarfjordr meaning 'windy fjorde' or 'fjorde of the ram' (a type of Viking ship)”. (Hurley, M. (2002). P. 97) Archaeological evidence from excavations carried out around the city of Waterford between the years 1986 to 1991 showed little evidence of Viking settlement in the city during the 9th and 10th centuries. Instead the evidence suggested a later Viking settlement.
Even though all of us got there safely, some fell as victims of the ice. This ice storm is what ruined all of us, because of this storm Nola’s family couldn’t go to Earth because the conditions were severely hazardous. Food supply was scarce because it was such a great risk to go outside of our new advanced pods that had to be transmuted to face the ice. Dad’s moved all of his work supplies into the pod, cramming it in so it barely fit in. Dad couldn’t just stop getting all these resources that we crutialy need to stay alive.
When the ice cleared in the spring, Hudson made a move that may have cost him his life. Wanting to further explore the Northwest Passage, he ordered the ship to sail randomly, trying to find the passage. This angered the crew, most of whom thought that they could finally return home after the long winter. As the tensions escalated, a band of sailors, led by Robert Juet, mutinied against Hudson in June. Juet cast Hudson, his son, and seven crew members, adrift in a small boat.
Polar bears stay warm by combining the properties of these two hairs. The guard hairs are actually hollow. The guard hairs are filled with air and absorb the sun’s rays and provide a polar bear with warmth while also providing an oily outer layer which helps keep the polar bear dry. The insulating hairs helps polar bears warm by trapping heat close to the skin. Under their fur they have black skin which is good for absorbing the rays of the arctic sun.
It was authorized by the British government, and planned to take children out of Germany, Czechoslovakia, Poland, Austria and relocate them to the United Kingdom. People of all religions including Christianity, Quakers and the Jewish, needed to help run the trains, to make the rescue operation work. It took many leaders, including Lola Hahn-Warburg, a Jewish woman part of a Jewish German banking family, who made framework for the rescues. Wilfrid Israel, a Jewish German businessman, who used his personal connections to secure a passageway for Jews. Stanley Baldwin, the former British prime minister and founder of Lord Baldwin Fund for refugees, got British people to donate and support the fund through a BBC broadcast.
