I was amazed and devastated to learn that polar bears could become extinct, at least in the wild, by the end of the century. The polar icecaps are melting. Polar bears are finding it difficult to hunt prey. The distance between ice flows is so great that polar bears are drowning. The survival rate of cubs is dropping. The plight of the polar bear is due to climate change. We’ve caused the problem and we should do all we can to rectify the situation. The government needs to step up-but you can do things on your own. Every little bit helps. Use ENERGY STAR products. Have your heating and cooling systems checked annually. Change those filters! Make sure your vehicle tires are properly inflated. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. If you don’t have to drive-don’t. Walk, bike, or take public transportation when possible. Do what you can, when you can to help save our environment.
