The Greening of December

Beyond Global warming

Polar Bear ((c) Ralph Lee Hopkins, National Geographic Society)Polar bears are feeling it. So is the small, rabbit-like pika. It’s global warming -- the biggest conservation challenge of our time. But for the last eight years, the Bush Administration has virtually ignored the problem as Arctic sea ice dwindles and temperatures rise.

With a new administration comes a new opportunity to tackle the impacts that global warming is having on our wildlife and wild places. Defenders’ new report Beyond Global Warming offers concrete recommendations for swift action to ensure our wildlife and wild places continue to survive in a warming world.

Hi! Thank you for this very informative post. Not only us humans but specially the animals are now experiencing the effect of global warning. What is more horrible is that, these creatures does not deserve this kind of punishment from us. Like us, they need care and attention too. And they also need their natural habitat back.

Good quality record. Disgrace we can not at all tie politicians down to signing what they aim doing when in office before we vote for them. On the optimistic side Obama appears to be the type that power even stick to some of what he promised.
