So save the Polar Bears , Net seals with the Steve Irwin and feed them to the Bears . It's a win win . Polar Bears are pretty and white , Seals are dark and ugly . I don't think anyone would mind if we used a hundred thousand or so ugly dark seals to save them . I think we could outfit the Bob Barker to help out too .
What I don't understand is our (U.S.A) slowness in developing alternative forms of energy or at least following, and/or developing E.P.A. regulations that would help slow global warming. We've known about this issue since at least the 70's. Why haven't we done more about it?
Faliceia , It's because we are broke .Every issue to " Go Green " is change in our current technology . To change and implement any change is very expensive .Just to produce a workable wind energy grid on a large scale would take ten to twenty years and billions if not trillions of dollars to install . It would also take newly trained technicians to maintain such a system . This is true for any change we make . Now you know why more isn't done about it .
It's great to know the full extent of the issues with polar bears and their warming climate, but it only serves to make me feel sad for them unless someone tells me: what can I do to help?
I believe in science as you do. But admit it-something is going on beyond exact science. The planet is dying. Start looking at science that supports your views and also that does not. You will be surprised at what you read and hear if you are open enough...
Issues like these really need to be brought into better focus. It's great to see an article like this!
Why don't any of these articles acknowledge the people that live up north! There is a significant populations of indigenous peoples that are feeling the same issues, drilling, lack of food, but the polar bears seems to be our only focus ! Beats me !
