#noarcticdrilling

The prescient effects of #climatechange are standing out more and more each day. @natgeo photographers @paulnicklen and @cristinamittermeier (founders of @sea_legacy) posit a plea for peace admidst the increasing decline of the Arctic ice shelves, with haunting footage of a starving polar bear forced to rummage through the remains of human settlements for food in lieu of food supply along Arctic coastlines. The effects of the damage done are showing where people can't see . . . until we see it. A reminder to be aware, be vocal, and realize each person can contribute to the preservation of our planet. In little ways we can help a lot.

Photo by @CristinaMittermeier // This is what a starving polar bear looks like. Weak muscles, atrophied by extended starvation could barely hold him up. Our @Sea_Legacy team watched as he painfully staggered towards the abandoned fishing camp from which we were observing and found some trash to eat—a piece of foam from the seat of a snowmobile, as we later found out. People have asked why we couldn’t help it, why we didn’t feed it. In addition to being illegal to feed wildlife, polar bears like this one need several hundred pounds of meat to survive. They primarily eat seals and they struggle when they are stranded for long periods of time on land, without a sea ice platform from which to hunt. We didn’t have a weapon and we didn’t have any food. There literally was nothing we could do for him as we were hundreds of miles from the nearest Inuit community. What could we have done? What we did do was push through our tears knowing that this footage was going to help connect a global audience to the biggest issue facing us as a species today. It is true that we don’t know what caused this animal to starve but we are certain that unless we curb carbon emissions, sea ice will continue to disappear and many more bears will starve. With these images, we want to wake the world up to the imminence of climate change and to how it will affect wildlife and people for decades to come.

Earth warming is a threat that Earth and all ecosystems threaten to survive on a natural basis, from the human being standing at the top of the pyramid of the natural cycle, to other animals and plants. The only way to save many scientists is to stop the growing trend of warming the earth by reducing greenhouse gases and using more clean and more environmentally friendly energy.

This photo has been passed around quite a bit this week. A painful look at a polar bear in its final days, due to climate change and its now rapidly decreasing habitat. The melting of glaciers may eventually impact humans, but in the meantime we see some of our beloved species suffering. #itstimeforchange #raiseawareness #risingseas

Foto por @CristinaMittermeier // É assim as aparências de um urso polar faminto. Os músculos fracos, atrofiados por uma fome prolongada, dificilmente o sustentavam. Nosso time @Sea_Legacy observou enquanto ele cambaleava dolorosamente para o campo de pesca abandonado o qual estávamos o observando e o qual ele encontrou algum lixo para comer - um pedaço de espuma do banco de uma "moto de neve" (snowmobile) como descobrimos mais tarde.
As pessoas perguntaram por que não conseguimos evitar, por que não o alimentamos. Além de ser ilegal alimentar a animais da vida selvagem, ursos polares como esse precisam de várias centenas de quilos de carne para sobreviver. Eles comem principalmente focas e lutam quando estão presos por longos períodos de tempo na terra, sem uma plataforma de gelo do mar a partir da qual possam caçar. Nós não possuímos uma arma e não tivemos comida. Literalmente, não havia nada que pudéssemos fazer por ele, já que estávamos a centenas de quilômetros da comunidade Inuit (membros da nação indígena esquimó que habitam as regiões árticas do Canadá, do Alasca e da Gronelândia) mais próxima.
O que nós poderíamos ter feito? O que fizemos foi pressionar nossas lágrimas sabendo que esta cena ajudaria a conectar um público global ao maior problema que enfrentamos hoje com uma espécie como esta. É verdade que não sabemos o que causou a este animal fome, mas estamos certos de que, a menos que diminuam as emissões de carbono, o gelo marinho continuará a desaparecer e muitos outros ursos morrerão de fome.
Com essas imagens, queremos despertar o mundo para a iminência das mudanças climáticas e sobre como isso afetará a vida selvagem e as pessoas nas próximas décadas.

There literally was nothing we could do for him as we were hundreds of miles from the nearest Inuit community. What could we have done? What we did do was push through our tears knowing that this footage was going to help connect a global audience to the biggest issue facing us as a species today. It is true that we don’t know what caused this animal to starve but we are certain that unless we curb carbon emissions, sea ice will continue to disappear and many more bears will starve. With these images, we want to wake the world up to the imminence of climate change and to how it will affect wildlife and people for decades to come.

Je ne peux pas avec cela, il me remplit de colère, d'indignation, mais en même temps, la douleur et l'impuissance. Je me sens impuissant parce que je sais que je ne peux rien faire pour ce pauvre animal. Douleur parce que mes espèces mêmes et ses usines ont fait de si terribles changements dans l'environnement, et puisque cet ours polaire est en train de mourir, des centaines et des centaines d'animaux le font aussi. MERCI LES USINES, MERCI L'HUMANITÉ D'AVOIR DÉTRUIT LE MONDE.

Photo by @CristinaMittermeier // This is what a starving polar bear looks like. Weak muscles, atrophied by extended starvation could barely hold him up. Our @Sea_Legacy team watched as he painfully staggered towards the abandoned fishing camp from which we were observing and found some trash to eat—a piece of foam from the seat of a snowmobile, as we later found out. People have asked why we couldn’t help it, why we didn’t feed it. In addition to being illegal to feed wildlife, polar bears like this one need several hundred pounds of meat to survive. They primarily eat seals and they struggle when they are stranded for long periods of time on land, without a sea ice platform from which to hunt. We didn’t have a weapon and we didn’t have any food.
