The pace of global climate change is truly alarming. Polar bears, left to fend for themselves without ice floes in the Arctic, have now been spotted as far south as Hawaii. These two polar bears, photographed near swaying palm trees, were forced by rapidly warming temperatures to migrate far across the Pacific Ocean in search of a solid place to stand. Hopefully their new tropical island home isn’t soon underwater.
