News Break: Polar Bear to be Listed as Endangered

It has been just announced that the Department of Interior – one day short of the court mandated deadline – has decided to list the polar bear as an endangered species due to declining arctic sea ice.  

The polar bear is the first species to be so listed as a result of climate change.

Expect to hear much bluster from Senator Inhofe and his marketing experts. Kudos to the DOI for finally making the decision and acting appropriately.
