Save the Polar Bear

The WE Campaign has successfully recruited 100,000 signatures for their petition to the Department of the Interior asking that Polar Bears be listed as endangered species.

Right now the Secretary of the Interior is considering the proposal to list the species and the WE Campaign is using this last 24 hours for a final push to get more signatures so they can deliver the petition to the Secretary with as many signatures as possible.

I'm skeptical about this proposed listing because of its inclusion of global climate change as one of the threats to Polar Bear survival. We need to fight global warming, but the structure and substance of the Endangered Species Act isn't properly suited for that purpose.

Regardless, Polar Bear numbers are dwindling and so are the numbers of their prey. Its important the government use its full regulatory force to protect them.
