The U.S. government never ceases to amaze me with the idiocy and greed. This time about polar bear critical habitat. The DOI has proposed over 200,000 acres in the arctic as "critical habitat" for the bears and has also approved giving most of this land to Shell for drilling. "Critical habitat" for the oil industry.
National Wildlife Federation has written a report criticizing this move.
The polar bears are in such dire circumstances with habitat loss as it is they are now turning to cannibalism!!!
Please send your comments to Salazar and tell him to stop his double standards and work for the polar bears and the people in this country instead of oil companies.
Here's a page from USFWS with all info. regarding the habitat designation.
