On monday, federal wildlife officials named climate change the biggest threat to the survival of the polar bear and warned that if global warming is not met with resistance, then bears are extremely likely to disappear from much of the Arctic. In a report released by the Fish and Wildlife Service, officials wrote that the most important action to combat the dwindling polar bear population is to reduce the current levels of greenhouse gas emissions. This task will be difficult to uphold as Mr. Trump has just entered office, intends to withdraw the US from the Paris climate agreement, and has shown little interest in trying to reduce emissions. The Fish and Wildlife service has decided to create a conservation plan to help the polar bears. Because the F & W Service has no authority to dictate energy policy or regulate emissions, the plan is more focused on smaller issues for polar bears, such as overhunting, preservation of land inhabited by bears, and dealing with increasing conflicts between man and bear.
