Bring them food!!

Global warming is melting away the ice bergs preventing them from hunting for seals, their main staple..

That is the worse possible advice anybody could give. Never, EVER, feed a polar bear. While it may be a good idea for scientific or government organisations to mount such efforts, doing this on your own is extremely dangerous. Polar bears are as dangerous as grizzlies, if not more so.
