The Bush administration has never masked its distaste for most environmental laws or its ambitions to thwart Congress's will. Now in its waning months, it is trying to undermine the Endangered Species Act.

What a vicious masquerade for a human being that man is. Why don't we just drop napalm over the entire United States and erect oil derricks maybe then he and his oil baron friends will be happy. GRRRRRRR

I'll pass on the napalm, thank you, Morgan....I have a better idea for George....send him into exile in the remostest part of the frozen tundra....give him a shovel and a pik and let him dig and drill to his heart's content....

noted, thank you, Karen

It's obvious that 99% of you do not know that there are many well already drilled on the north slope of Alaska, and they are all producers! They are all shut down because the USA cannot be allowed to flood the market! The oil companies, and the drilling companies, and the seismograph companies all have thousands upon thousands of employees to keep on the payroll.They are the ones who demand more drilling to "make work"!!
# 2 is that USA signed contracts decades ago that all oil was sold worldwide before any would come under domestic use. How do I know??? I have many contacts, including friends and family, also was raised in the edge of the Leduc, Alberta Bomb in the 1950's!!! My daughter is a seismograph field clerk reading computer spreadsheets and sends the most likely interesting to geologists, IN THE USA, EUROPE, INCLUDING ENGLAND. I am a little tired of being waved off as not knowing of which I speak! There is another pool of oil and gas in production right now, in Montana and North Dakota, and Southern Saskatchewin,/Manitoba making millionaires out of farmers/landowners. How do I know? My daughter's significant other is site boss of seismograph crews right there.!!!
Now back to topic!!!!
The ice is melting and will not stop as we are too late in controlling our greed and waste.
The POLAR BEARS ARE CARNIVOROUS, THEY EAT MEAT!!!! THEY DO NOT BROWSE AND EAT JUST FISH AND BERRIES LIKE GRIZZLIES AND BROWN, BLACK, KERMODE. THEY EAT ONLY MEAT AND FISH.
Now as the north country warms up they are going to move south looking for MEAT!!!!
#3..The whales, seals and other creatures of the Northern oceans will lose their meals as well and will also move south. This year alone we have seen black and brown bears walking about in our backyards looking for food because the weather has been tardy in the business of making berries for them to feed on.Here in the Lower Mainland of BC we are having to shoot bears who have attacked people and animals in the yards of suburbs!! This will speed up as the warming continues and the Polar bears also move south.

As I've commented before, it's time for Bush the clown to take his tent down, and move his entire circus out of town! History has labeled him a boob and he's doing his best to undo it; alas, the book has closed. They should make Presidents take the medical oath "First, do no harm....". Thanks for post,Karen.

"This week, the interior secretary, dirk kempthorne, proposed a regulatory overhaul of the act that would eliminate the requirement for independent scientific reviews of any project that could harm an endangered species living on federal land."

Guess he, dirk, must be drinking the same stuff bush was drinking at the Olympics.

Be sure to write to your Representatives and Congresspersons immediately. There is a time limit on this. 30 days or less. Pass this information to everyone you know today.


This could have a ripple effect towards other countries with the thinking that if USA does this
ILLEGAL tactic, then, we (another country) can do this too.


TY, Karen.

It appears that Bush and his cronies are determined to leave a trail of destruction in their wake. More like annihilation.

I will be so glad to be rid of this despicable slime. The whole world should celebrate the day that we are rid of him. It could not happen too soon for me, I have been trying for years to have him impeached.

I suppose that the head of any organization has to take responsibility for the actions of his/her minions. In this case, unfortunately, the minions have ridden rough shod over every legislation, to feed their greed and hunger for power. Will the next be any better. You remember that saying about absolute power------!

I know I sound angry in my previous post, maybe it is because in the last week 5 bears have been shot here in Metro Vancouver. One was shot for raiding a pickup crawling through the cap, 3 others were shot for actually house raiding [ walking into the homes] and raiding kitchens. Another was shot for attacking a woman on her knees, weeding her garden. Just now on the news a young boy says "I'm sad for the bears, this is their area and we live here too"

I also was angry because I keep on saying that the government is hood winking you. There is no oil they say, bull pucky. They just want "make work" for the 1000's of employees.Alaska offshore drilling can't hurt the polar bears anymore than the melting ice can. The only bad thing about offshore drilling is possible oil spills when the well blows in.

War with Iran is the madmen of Elitists who want to make more and more money. All the rich people in the world will be moving into mountain safe mansions and underground cities soon, we will have to fend for ourselves.

As for the polar bears they will die by drowning or end up the same as our black bears. It IS too late for them, with the ice gone they will drown.

Seems to me that politicians only get elected by persauding us to believe in the paradigm of groth (a stupid lie) which can only be fulfilled by destroying out beautiful planet. Every climate change makes our planet les able to support is and so we limit our own existance even more.
