Free lunch for the Ursus maritimus.

I was watching "Natures great events" on BBC1 on wednesday night which concentrated on the plight of drowning/starving Polar bears due to global warming and a solution to this problem came to me, why dont we feed these innocent carnivores our dead?
After all its our fault they are in this predicament, we have known that the ice caps are melting due to human pollution for the better part of three decades and now its happening before our eyes at such a speed that even those members of the populace in denial over it would be really hard pushed to forward a decent argument to the contrary.
A couple of thousand corpses should be more than enough these could be prepared and kept on ice until thay can be airlifted en masse to be scattered across the bears feeding grounds.
The Parsi people of Mumbai have been doing it for centuries, leaving their dead to birds of carrion as a final act of generosity and the Argentinian government were in the practice of dumping the remains of political prisoners into Shark infested waters not too long ago ,in fact those responsible for those crimes could be put to work dealing with the more grisly apsects of my proposed venture, using their years of experience in a legitimate fashion.
If this idea unreasonable or repellent to you just think about it the next time your jetting off to foriegn climes on owe these creatures.
