Do polar bears belong on the endangered species list? No: Bears...

Full story: The Seattle Times

Exxon used to encourage motorists to "put a tiger in your tank." Well, a different animal may begin influencing traffic soon.

"Our actions are killing the polar bears"

Apparently you missed this:
the worldwide population of these bears has more than doubled since 1965, to an estimated 20,000-25,000 today. Far from being threatened, by all accounts the bears are thriving.

And, there are reports out of Greenland this winter that the polar bears are starving and coming into towns and raiding trash dumps for food. Is it because of global warming? No. The reason is because there is TOO MUCH ICE for them to hunt.

Denmark's Meteorological Institute states that the ice between Canada and southwest Greenland right now has reached its greatest extent in 15 years. Satellite pictures show that the ice expansion has extended farther south this year - as far as Nuuk [the capital of Greenland, this area was inhabited during the MWP and later abandoned during the throes of the LIA, then was re-established in 1728 near the end of the LIA].
