Time is Running Out for the Polar Bears

PLEASE Give the Polar Bears a Chance!

Global warming is melting the sea ice on which polar bears hunt and live. Therefore, polar bears are swimming farther and farther distances to reach solid ice. They are also drowning and dying of starvation in record numbers. Other polar bears, trapped on land hundreds of miles from solid ice, are being shot or dying of starvation.

The last Administration enacted regulations under Section 4(d) and Section 7 of the Endangered Species Act that reduced protection to polar bears and created an exemption for greenhouse gas emissions. Thanks to an Act of Congress, the current Interior Secretary, Ken Salazar, may revoke these illegal regulations .

The deadline for revocation is May 9, 2009. Approximately 5,000 signatures are needed on the petition at to help convince Interior Secretary Salazar to revoke the illegal regulations before the deadline.

Take 5 minutes and take action. Sign the petition at Pass the word to your friends. The polar bear you save may be a mother.

So many species are nearly extinc thanks to global warming. We should do something. And I mean apart from slowing down the global warming we should do something specificaly for those animals.

I just signed the petition, this is such an important cause.
I have walked the tundra above the Arctic Circle and I wish more people realized how fragile it is and how sensitive it is to climate change.
I saw you at Reduced Footprints.

I hate it that our kids or grandkids won't even be able to see many of the animals we know these days. It's so sad...

Let the animals die because of bad environment management can jeopardize the world and more animals decrease in quantity. Save the animals so our next generation still can see it survive.

global warming is fake, the earth is really getting colder not hotter, the earth has been getting colder from 1998. 17,000 scientist have signed a petition saying that harmful gases like C02 and methane are not causing global warming, so your polar bears will be fine.
