THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS SPECIES:

Polar bears, brown bears interbred during warm periods. Is it happening again? (Wynne Parry, 7/23/12, LiveScience)

"If this trend continues, it is possible that future [polar bears] throughout most of their range may be forced to spend increasingly more time on land, perhaps even during the breeding season, and therefore come into contact with brown bears more frequently," the researchers write in results published today (July 23) in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

"Recently, wild hybrids and even second-generation offspring have been documented in the Northern Beaufort Sea of Arctic Canada where the ranges of brown bears and [polar bears] appear to overlap, perhaps as a recent response to climatic changes," they write.

Nevermind the hash it makes of Darwinism, how can climate have ever been different than it was right before cars were introduced?  Isn't global warming man made?
