Polar Bears Gain Threatened Listing

As much as it pained Secretary Kempthorne to say it, he did. Sure there were some pathetic caveats, but the basis is there legally, now. I applaud it.

Sea Ice decline

Now we need to focus on helping the bi-polar bears.

Yeah, but I didn't get a big federal grant.

They got a reprieve and a chance to pick the dump when the ice gives out. Polar bears don't use money. They eat seals. They have plenty of dump pickers in Atlanta too.

According to CNN showing the plight of polar bears by focusing on life on the ice, apparently penguins moved to the northern hemisphere or the bi-polar bears now can be found at both poles.

Maybe if we took that wasted money for global warming grants, we could buy boats for the polar bears and feed them for centuries.

Well Woody I'm not surprised that you've learned nothing from hanging out at Cooper's and that nutbin of fallacies in South Texas. I'm in Idaho now working on bull trout conservation, so my opinion on endangered species carries more weight than yours. I'll defer to you on tax law.

Bears depend on ice. Penguins too. Both are in trouble because of greenhouse gas buildup due to fossil fuel burning. There's only one animal doing that especially the bloviating right. It's a fact. Facts ae not debatable. There are no big federal grants for global warming. Maybe you would remove the national weather service too? Facts aren't your friend buddy. Little wild in "hot" Lanta these days eh?

I recently read the governor of Alaska was unhappy about the polar bears' new status. The reason she gave was vague. Hmmm.

Gov. Palin worries about oil. Alaskan animals' fate not so much. She's being touted as a VP candidate. And a classic global warming denier like Woody here. Birds of a feather.
