  •  thanks, I don't want to sound pro drilling or (5+ / 0-)

    anti polar bear, I'm just kind of wait and see.

    Seems like when it's a coin toss what to do the current admin comes down solidly on the side of conservation. They are ok with more drilling, but not to the detriment of the environment. That's the track record Salazar has had out here where he comes from, and I think he's the one calling the shots at interior, Obama has other issues.

    If I were to play devils advocate in the other direction I'd say what if the scientist did jump to a conclusion, it's the same conclusion I jumped to when first hearing the news. You can't be prosecuted for guessing wrong.

    Meanwhile I'm doing a very un ecologic 7 hr round trip at 18mpg to go camping. Once again I'm part of the problem.

    Good diary raising important issues, the take home thought is the ice is melting and at some time the bears are toast.
