Well, do you prefer to believe the Inuit, or the scientific method. The Inuit are seeing more polar bears. There are alot of explanations for that. People in Churchill MB see more polar bears as the ice begins to freeze over. But has the actual number of polar bears increased? No, their behaviour is simply driving them to a common location. In the case of the Inuit, polar bears are searching inland for more food -- where the people are -- so of course more will be seen. That does not translate to a high total number of bears.
I'll belive both since they both agree, the Nunavut government says that polar bear populations have gone up by 25% over the last 50 years. It's all over the net, just look past al gore and into science.
