On Polar Bears And Rush Limbaugh Being A Big Fat Idiot

I ordered Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth a few days ago. I haven't had an opportunity to see the whole thing yet, just bits and pieces. Apparently drug addict/windbag Rush Limbaugh has been ranting on his Wingnut radio show about how there's no such thing as global warming and and how everything is JUST FINE! And we need to REMAIN CALM! And we Liberals need to stop saying GLOBAL WARMING! Well regarding Global Warming and the apparently drug addled Rush digby gives us some info.


Unfortunately for Rush, the facts are on our side:

1) NASA photos and documentation showing a steady decline in polar sea ice since at least the 1970s.

2) The scientific community, as evidenced by the IPCC (pdf), has reached a consensus that it is "very likely" that global warming is caused by human emissions.

3) The National Snow and Ice Date Center: "If current rates of decline in sea ice continue, the summertime Arctic could be completely ice-free well before the end of this century." Click here to see a graph depicting this decline between 1978 and 2005.

You can take action on this now by contacting U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Director Dale Hall and informing him you are among the majority that supports the proposal to list the polar bear as threatened under the Endangered Species Act. The Fish and Wildlife Service is only taking public comments on this until April 9th so it is essential that you make your voice heard immediately!

Please distribute this message broadly and freely. The best way to counteract the work of global warming deniers is to let the truth spread like wildfire.
