You gotta love this story….
The “Natural Resources Defense Council” has been trying to re-ignite the Global Warming scare along with every other Tree-Hugger organization because the economy has hit them hard in the bank-account. Each Organization is trying to find the magic-wand that will get people to start using their charge-cards again and throw some money their way. The NRDC has been using a rather unique idea that is being adopted by most of the other organizations during these hard times. They have adopted the technique I like to call… “Lying”.
First, look at the partial screen-shot below copied from their very own website just 4 days ago. NRDC.ORG is trying to raise money with this bogus claim on their website.
Keep in mind they are talking about 40 years from now while you read the very short story below the NRDC screen-shot.
The following report came out on Christmas Eve.
FWS (Fish and Wildlife Service) Director Rowan Gould said the 2008 “threatened” listing was made “following careful analysis of the best scientific information, as required by the ESA.”
At the time, the service determined the bears weren’t danger of extinction, so did not warrant the “endangered” status. The bears were listed as “threatened” because they face serious threats from projected decline in its sea ice habitat due to global warming would result in them likely being in danger of extinction in the foreseeable future.
FWS is “confident it was and is the appropriate status,” Gould said.
Listing the polar bear as “endangered” as a result of global warming could open the door to using the Endangered Species Act to regulate greenhouse gases, an outcome the Obama administration has opposed.
You just can’t make this stuff up!
