Just thought you would like to know........
My passions are simple: Connect with those who share the same passions, beliefs, and help send the message(s) out there that our planet is dying. Empower myself and others so that we dont sit back and watch it all happen! Its time to act. Its time to speak, yell, scream, write, sign, the message to the government that they need to change the laws, they need to protect the  those animals that need protecting, they need to start caring about the state of the planet. Its time to fix our mistakes. Its time to fix our planet

please go to www.polarbearsos.org  or sign the petition. DEMAND Bush to protect them NOW!!!!!!  

Good news!! read me latest email message

Dear Teresa,

You helped create a blizzard of support for the polar bear
during the comment period that closed this past Monday.

In just 90 days, more than 500,000 Americans submitted comments
to the Bush Administration in support of protection for the
polar bear under the Endangered Species Act.

That figure is almost DOUBLE the number of public comments
generated by any other endangered species listing case in U.S.
history. Even more amazing is that NRDC Members and online
activists like you contributed almost half of the total
comments!

Thanks to you, our Polar Bear SOS campaign was able to broadcast
the plight of the polar bear to millions of Americans -- and
they responded to its distress signals in an unprecedented
outpouring of support.

What's next? The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service will review the
collected comments and will render a decision on whether or not
to protect the polar bear by next January.

That protection is far from assured. And so, between now and
January, NRDC will continue ratcheting up public and scientific
opinion on behalf of the polar bear -- who despite its mighty
survival skills is simply no match for global warming.

At the same time, we'll be fighting in Congress for tough
legislation to start cutting America's global warming pollution
-- our very best hope for averting a disastrous future of
climate upheaval that imperils not only the polar bear, but
humankind as well.

We'll be counting on your support and activism at every step of
the way. Thank you again for making your voice heard during this
critical comment period.

Sincerely,

Frances Beinecke
President
Natural Resources Defense Council

Thanks For your support.
 


I recieved this email today.......


Dear teresa,

Polar bears are being driven extinct by global warming. Their sea-ice home is rapidly melting.

Adding insult to injury, the Bush administration issued a permit to oil and gas companies to disrupt and harm denning polar bears by drilling in the Beaufort Sea and coastal plains. This permit allows them to harass mothers and vulnerable newborn cubs seeking refuge in maternity dens during harsh winter months. Meanwhile industry groups and demagogues like Rush Limbaugh are attacking the polar bear with anti-scientific claims that it's not in danger.

I'm appalled, but not surprised. Political appointees charged with wildlife management should be protecting species, not oil companies. Right now, the Center for Biological Diversity is challenging them to do just that. Please make a gift to help.

But we're not facing this challenge alone, thanks to our members and e-activists, including hundreds who have specifically responded to my appeals for help these past few weeks. If you have contributed already, please accept my personal thanks — we're halfway to our goal of $30,000. Help us reach this goal.

Teresa has received 4 new, 4 total stars from Care2 membersTeresa has been awarded 9 butterflies for taking action at Care2 Teresa F. (7) Yesterday, the U.S. Supreme Court finally set the Bush
Administration straight on global warming.

In a 5-4 vote, the Court agreed with NRDC and our partners that
carbon dioxide and other global warming emissions are
"pollutants" under the Clean Air Act



Prayer For Animals
God Our Heavenly Father, You created the world to serve humanity's needs and to lead them to You. By our own fault we have lost the beautiful relationship which we once had with all your creation. Help us to see that by restoring our relationship with You we will also restore it with all Your creation. Give us the grace to see all animals as gifts from You and to treat them with respect for they are Your creation. We pray for all animals who are suffering as a result of our neglect. May the order You originally established be once again restored to the whole world through the intercession of the Glorious Virgin Mary, the prayers of Saint Francis and the merits of Your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ Who lives and reigns with You now and forever. Amen.
Saint Francis of Assisi
