HELP SAVE POLAR BEARS FROM GLOBAL WARMING
The Bush Administration is beginning the review process to decide whether to protect the polar bear, threatened with extinction due to global warming, under the Endangered Species Act. But we must speak up before February 23, 2007, or they will not hold public hearings on this critical matter.

Please help by sending a message directly to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, letting them know you want public hearings on polar bear protection. They are not required by law to hold such hearings, but they can be swayed if we all speak up.

GLOBAL WARMING DISRUPTING BEAR HIBERNATION IN EUROPE
It’s not just Arctic creatures suffering from the negative effects of global warming. Spanish scientists are blaming global warming for the fact that brown bears appear to have stopped hibernating in Spain’s northern Cantabrian Mountains, the first bears known not to hibernate in Europe.

According to Douglas Futuyma, professor of ecology and evolution at the State University of New York in Stony Brook, “There is a grave concern about the prospects of a great number of species. They are likely to be harmed by temperature changes, by mismatch between their life cycles and the altered seasonal life cycles of species on which they depend, and by invasion of competing species that are better adapted to warmer conditions.”

STEP IT UP: UNITING FOR CLIMATE ACTION
Our friends at StepItUp07.org, a grassroots effort led by author Bill McKibben, are organizing simultaneous rallies across the country on April 14, 2007, to stage a National Day of Climate Action. If you want to do more to raise awareness about global warming, they’ll make it incredibly easy for you.

Visit their website StepItUp07.org and register to host an action: all you need is the ability to gather as many interested people as you can and hold a small rally. They will help coordinate the responses, introducing you to others from your area, and give you everything you need to be a rally leader, from banners to press releases. Please join in — it’s an easy but extremely powerful way to take action as a Stop Global Warming Virtual Marcher.
