U.S. global warming rules won't change to help polar bears

Full story: Chicago Tribune

Reporting from Washington - The Interior Department on Friday let stand a Bush administration policy barring the federal government from using the precarious state of the U.S. polar bear population as a reason to crack down on global warming, upsetting environmentalists and cheering oil and gas companies.

Once again, Obama is backing away from his promises. So much for "hope and change".

The misuse of the endangered species act has been observed by even the Obama regime. Maybe they are finally facing facts, that global warming is no real threat to polar bears. In the last half million years (just the blink of an eye geologically) it has be up to 5 degrees C warmer four or five times,what happened to the polar bear then?

Guess you just lost your license as a reading teacher. Obama did not back off from global. He said specie protection rules were not the right way to go about it.

No way Obozo will back off of AGW.
It is a scam and a fraud, just like Obamie, the puppet.

By the way, Polar bears are doing just fine.
There are commissions in various countries
that set the limits for how many can be harvested
each year. They are NOT endangered.

What do you know? There is a little sense left amid the hysteria. Salazar put people first, and protected millions of jobs and the basis of our economy that would have been literally litigated out of existence by the capitalism-hating mob that passes for the modern environmental movement if the feds had allowed polar bears to be used as a bludgeon against our country's energy industry. Now, we will see if Obama backs Salazar on this, or if he changes his mind tomorrow or next week when the din from the mob on the Left grows too loud, as he has shown time and again in the Glorious 100 Days of National Renewal that he is wont to do.

What an ignorant liberal response! Someone speaks out against a position of the Obama Administration and you automatically say he/she has been listening to Hannity or Limbaugh. Why don't you think for yourself and stop proliferating the DCC line. Its old and only shows the fact that you can't think for yourself.

Eliza, the poor child, is typical of today's young Neo-Marxist brats.
Since I am out of the country, I can not see Hannity, and do not really want to.
I do, however like Rush, but again, I can not hear him. I do plan to subscribe to Rush 24/7 so I can.
The poor little Marxist are now stuck with the Obamie puppet and they do not know what to do.
As they see their life and country erode around them they will soon start to wonder..."duhhhh, what the H have I done".

It is sad that these young neo-marxist have not spent time in central or eastern Europe, as I have. Fortunately, Marxism was dead when I got there, but monuments to those that tried to leave
would put a chill up the spine of these young
leftist.

I'm going to Alaska later this year. I'm reading that a High-powered rifle with 30-40 rounds of 300 magnum with 220 grain bullets is recommended. Will my .30-06 pack enough punch? If not, what should I buy? It would make sense to have a sidearm for emergencies..44 mag 6 shot revolver okay?

Eliza, I just read your profile:

I Believe In:
freedom, choice, liberty, equality & privacy.

Well, duhhhh... If you voted for Obozo, your
contradicted yourself by about 80 percent.
Yes, you will have choice to abort your baby, and you may also be equal to the illegal immigrants, but they MAY have more rights then you.
Privacy? for what? Under a socialist state, you have very little privacy.
Yes, you may be equal to everyone else, but why would you want that? What country has ever been great or even survived where everyone is equal.
Freedom? No, you do not get that in a Marxist state, or even socialist (Marxist lite)states.
Liberty? That's the same as freedom.
Please go and study some American history.

Maybe a few more years will mature you.

Let me see. I know many people that still own their own houses, cars, and property. I know many that still have their own businesses. People can still join any political party they want and vote for whom they want. Marxist slum? You need to get off the drugs. Try rehab.

Let me see. None of the things you talked about have happened, you call the President a silly name, and wonder if someone else will mature. Well, its obvious you are not yet there.

Sorry Keith, but the individual did not speak out on policy. The individual made a comment concerning the entire presidency of Obama and then came to an invalid conclusion.

If you listen to some of these talking shows (Rush ("I want Obama to fail.") Limbaugh you quickly recognize the rhetoric. Usually, when one mentions you are listening to someone, they are doing so in a generic, and not a specific way.

As an example of this, note the topic of discussion and the original post being commented on. Bush said the Polar Bears don't count. Obama agree's and automatically it is a bad thing and will lead us to 3rd World Marxism status.

Well, Now that you have responded from a socialist country with high crime, large prison population, lower standard of living and a much lower education system, perhaps you can explain how Obama's policy, which is a continuation of bush policy on Polar Bears, will lead us to being a 3rd world marxist nation.

Privacy has been done in by the Republicans and bush with the "UN"Patriot Act. This has been further extended by the Dem's. Lets work to get rid of it.

Yes, we are well aware that in American history, freedom and choice and privacy has meant what the white male in charge wanted it to. Just ask the Indians or the blacks or the women or the ....

Rush is a white male isn't he?
