Polar bears resort to cannibalism as Arctic ice shrinks -

"The Arctic sea ice melt is a disaster for the polar bears," according to
Kassie Siegel, staff attorney for the Center for Biological Diversity. "They are
dependent on the Arctic sea ice for all of their essential behaviors, and as the
ice melts and global warming transforms the Arctic, polar bears are starving,
drowning, even resorting to cannibalism because they don't have access to their
usual food sources."

On the other side....

Sen. John McCain's choice of a running mate, Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska,
favors drilling for oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, questioned the
science behind predictions of sea ice loss linked to global warming and opposed
a state initiative that would have banned metal mines from discharging pollution
into salmon streams.

Sarah Palin is really into drilling mother earth...
