Polar Bears with a Twist


by Irem Lara UNAL

There is actually more than one twist to this article; there are three parts. One is about cannibalism, the other is about extinction and the last one is about global warming.

Global warming is affecting not just humans and land but the animals too. One of those animals that are being affected is the polar bear. They are cute, fuzzy, heavy and hungry. When I say hungry I don’t mean snacking but I mean a total meal. These huge mammals are turning into cannibals. Global warming has affected them in a big way. They feed on their favorite entrée, which is the seal.  The problem is that the seals only come out during colder seasons. When global warming is happening the cold seasons turn shorter and hot seasons take over. During the longer summers there are no seals and if there are no seals the polar bears cannot survive and they have to turn over to their own kind to feed.

The second part to this twist is all about the possible future extinction of polar bears. The polar bears of the world swim for miles and need something to rest on and feed on. This resting place is what we call a glacier. The glaciers that the polar bears rest, rely and depend on are melting away into the ocean because of global warming.  The heat rays from the sun go through the earth's atmosphere to heat us up during the day. Because of man made pollutions, the bad gases from factories such as CO2 rise to the atmosphere and thicken it.  When the atmosphere thickens the heat rays cannot escape from the atmosphere. So, now we have all of this heat stuck inside the atmosphere and that heat melts the glaciers away into the ocean. As we know the polar bears need to rest on something after swimming so far. When their heavy bodies try to rest on thin ice, the ice breaks away; and the polar bears cannot do anything but drown.  Due to global warming these beautiful animals may not last until the end of the century.

Don't get all depressed about what I just said because these are all possibilities. There are ways to stop this from happening.

My suggestions are:

  • Recycle, reduce, reuse and repair
  • Turn against fossil fuel plants
  • Turn the lights of when you don't need light
  • Try to use as many natural things as possible
  • Try riding your bike or try walking for short distances instead of using your car
  • If you absolutely have to use a car, buy a hybrid if you can
  • Last but not least encourage everyone to help nature and themselves

If my ideas don't really convince you, go watch Al Gore's movie "An Inconvenient Truth". I am sure his brilliant work and ideas will impress you big time just as they impressed me. I am suggesting this because I was inspired by his wonderful movie and words. This gave me an idea to write my article.

Thank you citizens of the world for helping keep your planet safe and clean.
