Polar Bears Will Be Nearly Extinct By 2050?

I was reading Suburban Guerrilla today (great blog, go read her), and she pointed to an article about the very possible extinction of Polar Bears by the end of the century, with two thirds of them gone by 2050.

The reason? Global Warming burning away the sea ice that the Polar Bears LIVE and CATCH THEIR FUCKING FOOD on. This isn't coming from some radical environmentalist group, either, folks (for those who think that Global Warming doesn't really exist - which I find to be insane); it's coming from the government's geological scientists.

Great job, folks. Polar Bears have been around for about 40,000 years and in a matter of about 500 we managed to kill them off. Aren't we just the über-smart species?

Oh, and while I'm ranting: this is neither a liberal nor conservative argument any more. Although we hear a lot of conservatives ranting that it's not going on and a lot of liberals screaming that it is, truth be told there are plenty of numbers of both parties that are complete assholes when it comes to this topic. Example in point? One of my favorite comedians, George Carlin, will stand there and rant for an hour about how the conservatives are such assholes...and then he'll go into a rant about how Global Warming is a bunch of bullshit. I've seen him do it.

That's why I'm an independent.
