Bush’s Plan Is Leaky Lifeboat to Drowning Polar Bears

Don’t let polar bears fall through the cracks of Bush’s plan.What the Bush Administration left out when it granted "Threatened Species" protection to the polar bear? The protection! And It's illegal!

NEW YORK (rushprnews) 05/29/2008- Instead of being a lifeline for polar bears, this plan abandons them to the ravages of global warming. It will NOT help save the polar bear from extinction — because it refuses to crack down on global warming polluters and will do nothing to stop Big Oil's invasion of polar bear habitat.

Bush Plan Abandons Suffering Polar Bears to Global Warming

 

The Bush plan sends the equivalent of a leaky lifeboat to drowning polar bears — it simply can’t save them. Please give now so NRDC can fight in court to win the full-fledged protection that polar bears so desperately need. We must not let this decision stand. The Bush Administration's abandonment of the polar bear isn’t just cruel — it's illegal.

That's why I urge you to make a special emergency donation so that NRDC and our allies can fight the Bush Administration in federal court and win full-fledged protection for the polar bear.

With polar bears starving and drowning…and scientists predicting that two-thirds could be extinct by 2050…the best available science leaves no doubt that these magnificent Arctic creatures are in grave danger.

By law, our government is obligated to protect them from threats to their survival.

But when the Secretary of the Interior announced his plan two weeks ago, he made it clear that he would not lift a finger to safeguard polar bears from global warming and Arctic oil development.

And so the very next day, NRDC and our allies took the Bush Administration back to court — and this summer, we'll be waging an all-out legal fight to win uncompromising protection for these suffering bears.

It won't be easy, because Big Oil and corporate polluters aren't going to let polar bears get in the way of their profits without putting up a fight.

That's why we're counting on you to help.

Time is short. And the polar bear and its Arctic home are under siege. Many scientists are predicting that the loss of sea ice in the Arctic this summer could shatter previous records.

And the oil giants will soon begin industrializing the polar bear's home with noisy oil rigs, miles of pipelines, and the deadly specter of catastrophic oil spills.

Your donation will help NRDC turn back Big Oil's invasion…force the government to safeguard the polar bear's critical habitat…and start taking measures to turn down the heat on global warming pollution.

Please give the polar bear a fighting chance as we enter this next critical round of the battle for its very survival.
