While everything (underline, exclamation point) we cover here at animalinsider is important -- particularly the lolanimals, particularly the photoshopped pictures of cats in boobs -- this story we find particularly loaded. Why?
a) It would legally recognize global warming as the threat.
b) This classification could trigger limits on arctic development, particularly oil and gas exploration and production.
c) Polar Bears are cute.
d) Polar Bears are also smart and dangerous and powerful -- Gnut!
e) This is clearly a Polar Bear plot to take over humanity -- did you read (a) and (b), does that sound realistic at all???
Who knows, bills get tabled for reasons, it probably won't happen.
