Being an environmental blogger can get heavy sometimes -- vanishing ice sheets, cap & trade versus carbon taxes, lying neocon senators -- it all gets to be a bit much.

So when I was doing research for a little polar bear animation project I'm working on, I came across this totally shtreet polar bear, who's got the moves down. Sorry, it's just too good not to share.

attn: PETA activists. I have it on good terms that this polar bear was not in any way harmed in the making of this film. In fact, he was apparently well-paid in freshly caught fish.

Not making too big a point here, except to suggest perhaps that we adopt a more humorous version of our favorite global warming mascot.
