So, my friend R is a hardworking member of Greenpeace, and she recently asked me to share something with you all regarding the Gov’ts delayed action to save the POLAR BEARS:

“While the Department of Interior is dragging their feet on protecting polar bears, they are moving full steam ahead on plans to drill for oil in prime polar bear habitat. New oil leases are opening up in the Chukchi Sea and oil companies are lining up quickly to obtain licenses to drill. A fifth of the remaining Arctic polar bears depend on Chukchi Sea ice in their hunt for food.

In December of 2005, Greenpeace and two other conservation groups sued the Bush administration when it missed its first legal deadline to respond to the petition for an endangered species listing. On December 27, 2006, the Service announced its proposal to list the species as “threatened” and had one year to make a final listing decision. The legal deadline for doing so was January 9, 2008.” read the rest of the article and see the video here.

Do it for the love of Polar Bears! (Now that’s a bumper sticker!)
