The U.S. government has finally decided that polar bears need more protection. (60% of all the world's polar bears live in Canada)

It's one thing to decide that polar bears needed physical protection, although they have not said what means will be used to protect them. (Do they intend to fly food in to feed them as they starve to death? Maybe they can find a way for them to hybernate if there is no longer sufficient snow cover? A Club Med for bears?) This is not as simple as just cordoning off more of the southerly habitat for grizzleys, because the needs of all polar animals are more complex.

The U.S. needs to decide to protect the environment that the bears need to live in. As long as the U.S. government sees global warming as some kind of fairy tale, there is no hope for any of the polar species, land mammals, sea mammmals, fish, birds, or invertebrates.
