The Poor Polar Bears Now That the Ice is Melting

10/5/18 The Guardian:
Authorities in Canada’s Arctic north are scrambling to transport critical supplies to three isolated communities after the early arrival of sea ice prevented delivery barges from reaching in the region.
Paulatuk, Kugluktuk and Cambridge Bay, which have a combined population of nearly 3,000 people, have been unable to receive shipments of food, fuel and lumber after ice moving from the high Arctic sealed off the Amundsen Gulf.

The ice monitors are still suggesting that we could have an early fall melt that would reduce the sea ice further and make this year one of the top five lowest years. Otherwise we barely were the sixth lowest in the satellite record and the North west passage did not open this year.
