And yet still, people up in Alaska, where a meeting on listing the polar bear as endangered, are sitting around saying, "But we can't do anything about weather changes, so why list the bears?"


List the bears like the bald eagle was listed - it ended the us of DDT and helped save the population, that's why!

Anyone who doubts global warming is either a sceptic or is making too much money to permit the truth to surface much to the detriment of all of us.Land being claimed by the sea is ineviatable if we don't stop our practices and the wave of refugees will be like a tsunami. We need to stop the greedy and the George Bushes of the world because we will all be paying for his sins.
