Cause and Effect

Mike's article: polar bears are endangered.

The government's decision: polar bears sure are threatened, all right.

Unfortunately, the asshats in the Bush Admin exempted global warming from the causes that must be considered by federal agencies when they approve or embark on any venture that might impact the polar bear. Since global warming is melting the Arctic sea ice, and that sea ice is the Arctic polar bear's sole habitat and hunting grounds, global warming is pretty much the direct cause of the polar bear's decline. So basically the Bush Administration, in true Bush Administration fashion, completely gutted the protections for the polar bear even while listing them as threatened. Just keep reminding yourself: Only 8 more months, only 8 more months....
