Are Polar Bears an Endangered Species?


According to the article below, the White House is considering classifying Polar Bears as an endangered species.

The article points out that this is an issue because Polar Bears are loved for their appearances in Coca-Cola commercials, children's toys, and now...the I Heart Polar Bears tshirt.

This is an interesting thing for the Bush administration to be considering, as this is apparently a tacit acceptance of global warming. To me, the jury's still out on this, and on whether global warming is a good thing or a bad thing. But then again, I'm not a politician.
