A group of 30 scientists is urging the Fish and Wildlife Service to list polar bears as endangered, due to global warming and the loss of Arctic ice. Signers of the letter include Mike Mann and Stefan Rahmstorf of RealClimate. Recent reports have polar bears resorting to cannibalism because their food sources, seals, are becoming more difficult to find. As usual, it's difficult to imagine anyone in the Administration who gives a shit. On the other hand, it seems like the kind of crusade you could get about N million schoolchildren behind.
