Better Late Than Never
The polar bear has finally made it's way on to the endangered species list. It has been a long time coming in view of the ever increasing evidence that global warming is threatening it's very being, and was by all accounts a hard fought battle.
Greenhouse gas emissions and global warming are of course the reason for the sea ice melting at such an alarming rate. So placing polar bears on the endangered species list will not be nearly enough in the long term unless huge strides are made very soon to legislate reduction of greenhouse gas emissions here in the US, and worldwide.
