TGIF Video: Polar Bear Ice Climbing

There’s a whole series of these animations from RG studios posted at YouTube, including Polar Bears hang gliding, playing golf, and on vacation in Easter Island. We would like to think they can rest easy now that they’re listed as an endangered species under the Endangered Species Act (ESA), but environmental groups are claiming that loopholes in the ESA would still leave them unprotected against their biggest threat; global warming caused by man-made pollution.
