Saving Polar Bears

How about collecting plastics we throw away to make floating islands for polar bears (so they don't drown) to save them. In winter, the Arctic Ocean freezes over and the polar bears hibernate. The plastic "islands" would then be frozen along with the H2O. In the summer as the ice melts, the floating islands provide a resting place for the bears on the hunt. Perhaps there could be big enough islands for science platforms or tourism?

  2. Perhaps the plastic can come from the middle of the Pacific Ocean where all the plastic is aggregating. There could be a trawler that clumps up all the plastic and once it has enough, sail to the north pole and dump the mass up there?
