  Chill Out…It’s International Polar Bear Day!
It’s February 27th, and that means it’s International Polar Bear Day!
Most of us have never seen a polar bear in the wild, and for some, they may seem like nothing more than a cuddly face on a poster or soda can. But as International Polar Bear Day hopes to remind us every year, our fate and that of the polar bear is more connected than many realize.
Global climate change, exacerbated by human fossil fuel consumption and deforestation, is destroying the sea ice on which polar bears depend for survival. Although we humans spend a lot of our time trying to stay a toasty 98.6 degrees, polar bears are so adapted to cold that they can’t take temperatures above 50 degrees. As global temperatures increase due to greenhouse gas production, sea ice melts rapidly, leaving the polar bears with no way to hunt for food.
We have to take care of the Polar Bear, because we humans are the cause of Global Climate Change and Global Climate Change is destroying their home and bringing them an adversary, the Grizzly Bear, which they are not prepared to defend themselves against. 
Additional responsibility for our environment needs to go to those who have sold it out, who need to be held accountable for their actions and need to have their priorities not only questioned, but also answered for.  The question is are these people representing the voters of their states or are they representing the highest bidder???
