    A Polar Bear Needs You!


    While reading this, please put away all politics and beliefs on global warming.

    The simple fact is that the polar bears habitat is disappearing and the numbers are declining.

    HELP SAVE POLAR BEARS
    The Current Administration is beginning the review process to decide whether to protect the polar bear, threatened with extinction due to global warming, under the Endangered Species Act. But we must speak up before February 23, 2007, or they will not hold public hearings on this critical matter.
    Please help by sending a message directly to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, letting them know you want public hearings on polar bear protection. They are not required by law to hold such hearings, but they can be swayed if we all speak up.
    Click on this link, it will take you to a website to attach your name to the letter to Supervisor Meehan so people (mostly educated) and not just the politican will have a voice to be heard in an open discussion.

    January 27, 2007

    Supervisor Rosa Meehan, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

    Dear Supervisor Meehan,

    Thank you for proposing to protect the polar bear as "threatened" under the Endangered Species Act.

    As you move toward a final decision on such protection, I urge you to hold public hearings -- across the lower 48 states as well as in Alaska. During your "status review" of the polar bear in 2006, more than 100,000 Americans from all 50 states wrote to express their support for protecting the polar bear. Please give us an opportunity to express our views to you directly at this critical time.

    Global warming has already taken a high toll on the polar bear's Arctic habitat and the American people are alarmed by the bear's plight. Please let us participate in the process that will help determine the polar bear's fate.

    Re: A Polar Bear Needs You!

    I don't keep up on these topics as much as I should to be honest.
    I am not some bleeding heart activist.
    But I am a person that when in nature, as opposed to sitting in front of my computer 6 hours a day, feels a connection to it.


    My wife tipped me off on this letter.
    She has a profound interest in the protection of animals and conservation in general, it is part of her education and she is in the know on what is going on around the world.
    We were sitting here talking on this lazy Saturday morning, and I came up with the idea to reach a
    few extra people here on PPO.


    I feel that this is a bit more important than voting for mnjamie's dog park to be the best dog park in Tampa, BTW, I did take the time to vote for the dog park thing.
    If you are on a time budget, I hope you take the 2 minutes of your PPO reading time to add your name to the list.
