Environmental Groups Sue Bush Administration to Force Polar Bear Protection ?    Natural Resources Defense Council
    Tuesday 11 March 2008

Faced with overwhelming scientific evidence, government continues delay on Endangered Species Act listing due to global warming.
    
Washington - Today the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), the Center for Biological Diversity and Greenpeace sued the Bush administration for missing the legal deadline to issue a final decision on whether to list the polar bear under the Endangered Species Act due to global warming.


Do we care about this or not?

The main reason Bush is committing this particular heinous act, is because placing the polar bears on the endangered list would be a de facto admission that global warming is happening.

Ah so. I thought it was to give another gift to the oil companies who have been so generous to him.

Maybe both?

The thinking here in Arizona goes along the lines of; "At least my house will be beach front property."

Yes. The Bush administration's denial of the observable fact of global warming is in itself a defense of their oil corporation masters.
