Scientists Warn, Polar Bears Could Become Extinct In Year 2100

Published

on

Artic’s sea ice has been shrinking decade after decade with a rate of around 13% since the late 1970s. These icy places provided a natural and essential habitat for polar bears, seals, and walruses but keep melting because of global warming.

The polar bears rely on the ice to hunt for the seals. Unfortunately, as the caps break up, the bears are forced to travel longer distances than usual or even onto the shore, where it becomes harder to feed their young.

International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) has listed polar bears as vulnerable for extinction. Dr. Peter Molnar of the University of Toronto in Ontario, Canada, has dubbed them the “poster child for climate change… polar bears are already sitting at the top of the world; if the ice goes, they have no place to go,”.

A study estimated the timeline of the bears’ endurance in the coming decades, looking at the impact of declining sea ice versus their capability to survive.

“What we’ve shown is that, first, we’ll lose the survival of cubs, so cubs will be born but the females won’t have enough body fat to produce milk to bring them along through the ice-free season. Any of us know that we can only go without food for so long… that’s a biological reality for all species.” said Dr. Steven Amstrup, a chief scientist of Polar Bears International who was also involved in the study.

The study also talked about how polar bears will be completely gone by the year 2100. Some groups already reached their limits in some areas in the Arctic.

Amstrup mentioned that “Showing how imminent the threat is for different polar bear populations is another reminder that we must act now to head off the worst of future problems faced by us all. The trajectory we’re on now is not a good one, but if society gets its act together, we have time to save polar bears”.

According to Amstrup, efforts in fighting climate changes won’t just help stabilizing numbers of polar bears, also will benefit the rest of life on the Earth, including ourselves.

Brazilian Teen Allegedly Cries Blood And Doctors Have No Idea Why

Brazil, a 15-year-old girl has baffled doctors after allegedly crying blood from her eyes for over a week. Doctors claim that they can’t understand what is happing with the girl.

Doris started feeling sick on September 12, her mother then decided to take her to the hospital in her home city of Sao Paolo. The girl said that she felt uncomfortable in her abdomen and doctors diagnosed her with kidney stones. The medication was given for the pain and she was sent home.

Unfortunately, on Sunday morning, she was rushed to the emergency room for the second time as blood coming out from one of her eyes. She was examined but doctors couldn’t determine the cause of the blood tears. When she told the doctors there was no discomfort nor pain caused by the blood, she was once again sent home.

The girl’s mother, Juliana Teixeira de Miranda, said, “My daughter did countless tests, but they couldn’t find any problems. The doctors released her and we returned home at dawn on Monday.”

“We are going to do whatever the professionals ask, we want to find out what’s really going on.”

Juliana said that her daughter had blood flowing from both the girl’s eyes, worrying the family even more. Doris, once again, was taken to the hospital, but still, no one had any clues about her condition.

“She underwent a tomography and several other tests, but the doctors found nothing that could justify the blood tears. As there are no answers, the doctors asked her to do some more tests this week to try to find the cause,” Doris’ mother said.

It said that the hospital where she was admitted wanted to do more tests on her in order to determine the exact cause of the bizarre symptom.

Ophthalmologist Rafael Antonio Barbosa Delsin said, “The presence of blood in the tear is called hemolacria, a condition already described in the medical literature. Treatment depends on the cause, but sometimes it disappears as suddenly as it appeared, without treatment and without a conclusive diagnosis,”.

“Most of the time it is a problem in the patient’s body. Although it causes certain amazement, they are not complicated cases to treat. Depending on the cause, it can be treated with antibiotics and hormonal remedies. This situation rarely causes other health problems for the patient,” Leandro Fonseca added.
