    whoops. I applaud Obamas team for not buying another bilious bale of bull from WHO et al.


    W.H.: Polar bears not 'endangered'

    The Obama administration is sticking with a George W. Bush-era decision to deny polar bears endangered species status.

    In a court filing Wednesday, the Fish and Wildlife Service defended the previous administration’s decision to give the polar bear the less-protective “threatened” species designation, a move that will frustrate environmentalists who hoped for stronger protections under the Endangered Species Act. …

    At the time, the service determined the bears weren’t danger of extinction, so did not warrant the “endangered” status. The bears were listed as “threatened” because they face serious threats from projected decline in its sea ice habitat due to global warming would result in them likely being in danger of extinction in the foreseeable future.

    'Dramatic decline' warning for plants and animals
    12 May 2013 - More than half of common plant species and a third of animals could see a serious decline in their habitat range because of climate change.

    Hey.....they know that climate legislation is going to crash and burn. This is simply a salvo to give Senate Dems on the bubble some wiggle room heading to 2014.

    Of course, the committed warmist nutters will ignore the story......to them, there are like 4 polar bears left in Canada!!!:up:

    Id love to see if I could take one of those suckers down with my .44 magnum Rossi lever action......one shot of hollow point. I thhink if it takes more than 2, I'm in deep.

    Just make sure to file down the front sight so that after you've pissed him off, it doesn't hurt so bad when he shoves that barrel up your keester!
