Looks like the Oil industry sat on it’s duff and allowed the Polar Bear to become listed as Endangered, even though it is based on future 50 year weather projection . When have we ever believed these LT weather model projections??
But Interior Secretary Kempthorne did add a ruling that it would be “wholly inappropriate” to use the (Endangered Species Act) listing as a tool to reduce greenhouse gases, as environmentalists had intended to do. NDRC & Greenpeace are already at work to remove the motion.
I cannot understand why Oil people aren’t at work to over turn the listing since it is the first time a thriving species has been put on the list based on extreme long term weather projection 50 years in the future!!
