You'll never convince corporate America and corporate Canada of climate change --or perhaps I should say you'll never get them to "admit" to climate change-- as long as they can make money engaging in operations that compromise the health of our planet and everyone and everything it sustains. Our governments are failing miserably in putting a stop to this abuse. As for these beautiful little seal pups, it seems that they just can't catch a break. If they're not being clubbed for their skins, they're dying after being separated from their parents when melting ice floes break up. Human greed appears to be their greatest predator.

Poor little fellas~~they surely do have a hard road to tread due to mankind's thoughtlessness and nonchalant attitudes toward animals and whether or not they are safe or whether or not they live or die. How very, very sad that we are losing our animals. This is really heartbreaking.

Canada spends 3 million dollars annually to fund the one processing plant that dumped tonnes of the oil
