Help Starving Polar Bears and Join the Fight Against Climate Change

    1. Sponsored by

      an organization supporting clean air

Polar bears in the Hudson Bay are starving during the long summer months as the ice they rely on to hunt for food melts earlier each spring and later in the fall due to rising global temperatures fueled by carbon pollution.

Even as polar bears go hungry from the impacts of climate change, greedy corporate polluters are fighting to continue dumping unlimited carbon pollution into our air.

The Environmental Protection Agency is acting now to limit carbon pollution from coal-fired power plants, but is coming under assault from polluter-funded attack groups. They need to hear from you that Americans support limits on carbon pollution to protect the future of polar bears.

Help create a better future for polar bears by sending a message to the Environmental Protection Agency in support of limiting carbon pollution from coal-burning power plants.

      I think we need to move to alternative energy sources to reverse climate change. I'm sure the Polar Bears will be the first of many species to go extinct if we do not act fast. We need more awareness of this.

      I heard that as the artic ice melts, the polar bears lose the land to navigate, forced to swim further distance facing the danger of drawning. Other artic animals are also losing their habitat as the ice melts. This is a no brainer. We need to act NOW or we perish.

      I find the polar bears starving and dying very disturbing. I think the general population needs to be educated about the impact of global warming. The need to stop the oil and coal burning to limit pollution and development of greener sources of energy now, not 10 years from now. What else can we do for the polar bears? Will it be too late?

      Because I love Polar Bears and all of this planet's creatures. I also know that if we can't act to save them, we won't be far behind. We are all part of an intricate system where even plankton are indispensible.
