Gee, way to go in really helping those polar bears. Don't let the ESA have any power to save them so polluters just keep on polluting. It's so frustrating!

Rape and plunder. They won't list them as endangered so they can drill in the Arctic. O but wait ! maybe they won't have to now that fracking is proving so lucrative here ! And Keystone too. The absolute tragedy of it all. My favorite quote: "The ability to forsee consequences is the mark of a profound people."

Well its obvious he does not care about animals It does nt take much sense to know that polar bears are already becoming endangered Infact so much of the worlds wildlife is becoming endangered You have to be an idiot not to know that now If its not from global warming its from man wanting to kill anything that moves

noted! Thanks
