So sad. It makes me want to do something to help it.

Well, you could use less gas and turn down your heating...

But mostly, you could convince other people that it's worth helping too.

You do know that polar bears can swim for great distances right?

Yes, I'm aware of that. You know that polar bears aren't shaped like question marks, yes?

Pardon the sarcasm. It's an allegory. Polar bears need floating ice to hunt. If the floating ice is too thin to support them (hence the title), they swim great distances back to shore, and starve.

Thin ice.

Animals come and go, the earth delivers animals up and then they eventually are swallowed back up into the earth again. We too will all go one day.

But that doesn't mean that any of us are unimportant. The worst thing you can do to a living thing is throw it away because it "doesn't matter."

awww. this makes me so sad, becuase I love polar bears so much.
This is a wonderful depiction of the global warming crisis
and is probably the best deviation I have seen in the #CoolClimate Contest Gallery...

:D

"Mommy, what happened to the polar bears?"

"Well, they're all dead now, because apparently we hate them. Now let's get out of this super-hot sun and turn on Mommy's favorite central air conditioning."

"Yay!"
