Save the Polar Bear:
Petition to the President-Elect

From Center for Biological Diversity

Polar bears are dying and will soon be wiped out entirely if we don’t take immediate action to curb global warming.

Please sign the petition below and pass it on to a friend.
With your help we’ll reach our goal to get 50,000 signatures below and send a strong message to President-elect Obama before he is sworn into office.

Global warming is rapidly melting the sea ice polar bears depend on. Accounts of bears starving and drowning are on the rise as they are forced to swim farther and farther to reach the solid ice they need for hunting and resting. Some bears are even turning to cannibalism in a desperate search for food. Those trapped on land hundreds of miles from the nearest ice are often shot as they wander, starving, near villages.

And, as if things weren’t bad enough already, pollution from oil and gas drilling threatens to destroy what’s left of the polar bear’s disappearing habitat.

If current trends continue, two thirds of all polar bears — including all bears in Alaska — will be extinct by 2050, and the rest of the species will be gone forever by the end of the century.

But we can save them by joining together to take immediate action. The science is clear. We know what needs to be done — we just need to build the political support to make it happen.

Please help us gather 50,000 signatures on the petition before the presidential inauguration — January 20, 2009 — to encourage President-elect Obama to rein in global warming and save the polar bear.
