Records: U.S. agency did look at threats to polars bears

Liar, liar pants on fire. Do you believe anything the US government says? Fool!
Contrary to Interior Department claims, officials completed a review of studies examining how human activities were affecting Arctic warming and endangering polar bears' survival less than a week before proposing to list the bears as threatened with extinction, according to department documents.

The "Range-Wide Status Review of the Polar Bear," posted on a government Web site, was completed six days before Secretary Dirk Kempthorne proposed adding polar bears to the endangered-species list Dec. 27. It cites several studies on how greenhouse-gas emissions are affecting the Arctic and how cuts in carbon dioxide could slow the pace of warming there.

None of those citations made it into the final listing proposal, and the department for months has denied that such an analysis occurred.

They even lie about doing their jobs competently.

The picture I chose to represent me (also my gravatar) - a polar bear attacking the rudder of the US nuclear submarine Connecticut, which had surfaced through the ice near the north pole. I care about this.

Many of us care, but it may be too late. We're also about to lose the last of the wild tigers. The only ones left are in India (per Nature Channel) and their numbers are dropping fast.

I hate seeing such magnificent animals such as polar bears, tigers, and elephants for that matter, becoming extinct.
