saving polar bears

Late last year, I wrote about ' global warming means no more polar bears'.

US Secretary of the Interior Dirk Kempthorne announced on 27 December 2006 that the US Fish and Wildlife Service proposed to list the polar bear as a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act and initiate a comprehensive scientific review to assess the current status and future of the species.

According to the official media release
The Service will use the next 12 months to gather more information, undertake additional analyses, and assess the reliability of relevant scientific models before making a final decision whether to list the species.

12 months is a long time to wait if polar bears are dying.

The announcement is just a proposal. All Americans who are concerned should read the proposal and comment by the due date.

Time is running out.

My human stayed home all day again. As much as I enjoy lying on his lap and napping together on the couch, I'm not like a dog which suffers from separation anxiety.

I need time alone in the house so I can hop up on the kitchen bench without being yelled at, and to do all the other secret feline activities that we do when no humans are around.
