In response to numerous reports claiming his demise, Mark Twain once famously said, "The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.”
If polar bears could talk, the would probably say the same thing because, in 2006, Al Gore in his fallacious movie "An Inconvenient Truth", predicted their similar fate with this animated clip from that movie:
According to Gore, all the sea ice would disappear due to climate change, and the poor polar bears, unable to find any ice to rest on, would subsequently drown from exhaustion. In fact, as Al accepted his Nobel Award for that great movie, he claimed that all ice would be gone by 2013.
Here's the problem. The ice didn't go away and those bears are doing quite well if you compare their their numbers to those of the late 1960's. Back then, their population was estimated to be between 8,000 and 10,000. Now, according to the latest study, whose report was released on February 21, their population is estimated to be between 22,623 and 32,257. And both of those numbers beat the 22,000 to 31,000 estimates from the year before; respectively.
It's sad that "An Inconvenient Truth" was so wrong in so many ways, but is still regarded by the political left as being factual. What's even sadder is the fact that Al Gore is set to release a "sequel" to his original lies.

Good News for Polar Bears. Bad News for Al Gore: As far back as seven years ago, a British court ruled that Gore’s Oscar-winning environmentalist documentary film, An Inconvenient Truth, contained several errors and exaggerations that illustrated the alarmist spirit that motivated the filmmaker: https://www.commentarymagazine.com/culture-civilization/popular-culture/good-news-for-polar-bears-bad-news-for-al-gore-warming/
