Slimming! "Polar bears are shrinking because of the impact of climate change on their natural habitats, along with many other animals and plants, researchers say. Rising global temperatures and changes in weather patterns have knock-on effects which are already stunting the growth of a wide range of species. The change could have a major impact on the expanding human population, with major food sources like fish likely to reduce in size and crops expected to grow smaller and less reliably than today."
