Polar Bears feeling the heat

Global warming and habitat encroachment are pushing polar bears into a tight corner. Ever since people starting creating communities in the fridgid north with their open garbage dumps polar bears have taken to scavenging for food there, often fatally crossing paths with human beings, but now even human garbage isn't enough to keep some of them from starvation and cannibalism. Plans are underway to officially list the Polar Bear as "Threatened" under the Endangered Species Act. If you're going to be in the Washington D.C. area March 20th you can help do something about it! Join other concerned citizens like yourself at the U.S. Capitol and tell Congress they need to get a handle on Global Warming! To learn more or RSVP to the event go to the Climate Crisis Action Day website. Want to try to help Polar Bears in your own zip code? Visit your local zoo and try to get an interview with the Polar Bear keepers. Polar Bears are so well insulated that they overheat easily, so a cool environment is very important! If you have concerns about the habitats for Polar Bears and other arctic animals, ask your zoo directors what they're going to do about it, and offer to help with any fundraising activities!

Circus Valley's "Penguito" makes a snowman (out of mud!) and jokingly asks "What global warming?!" A funny take on a not so funny reality! EP Designs reminds us that its the issues that are important on election day! Vote for Planet Earth!
