Why Are Polar Bears Not Drowning as Predicted

Polar Bears were drowning at a frightful pace in 2004. The Times Online reported that scientists had found four Polar Bear carcasses floating in the same Arctic Sea area off the Alaskan north coast in one month's time. Based upon those four bear carcasses and evidence the average Arctic temperatures had increased 2-3C since the 1950s, the only logical course was to guess the deaths resulted from Global Warming. Further, the scientists believe Polar Bear drownings are becoming more prevalent and widespread across the Arctic region.

Few have heard the refutation of the four dead bears story. World Climate Report wrote in in May 2008 that the floating bear carcasses were spotted from the air a few days after a strong storm with high winds and 2 meter (6.56167 feet)high waves. The bears, which can swim 100 miles per day in open water, were presumed to have drowned because of exhaustion when caught in a big storm without ice flows within easy reach.

But, in 2005, 2006, 2007, and now 2008 we have heard nothing about the increased death by drowning of the predicted large numbers of Polar Bears. Where are the dead bears? Researchers saw four Polar Bear bodies floating in the Arctic Ocean where none had ever been seen before; ten other bears were seen swimming in open water more than 2 kilometers (1 mile 427.2 yards) from land. And this led the smart guy scientists to conclude global warming caused the bears to swim greater distances, exhausting them, and then drowned when caught in big storms.

There have been large ocean storms in the years between 2004 ad 2008. So, where are all the dead bears?

After years of research, we now know why Polar Bears are not drowning in the expected numbers --

Maybe those polar bears got cramps.
Maybe they went swimming too soon after eating.... mom always warned us it was dangerous.
I do like your hypothesis about the boats.
Many boats come loose from their moorings.
Not all boats sink as previously stated by scientists.
