This is not meant to be political but certainly applies to Alaska, especially with so many folks moving up here thinking Alaska is booming. Hmm, maybe we could farm the Polar Bears out to folks as pets.

Maybe there's hope for jobs in a "Cooling Initiative" to support the critical environment........
They could set up a big air cooling facility to combat global warming........

I particularly liked, and agree, with this part of the article:

Quote:
Gov. Sean Parnell, who succeeded Palin upon her resignation in July, said the Endangered Species Act was being used as a way to shut down resource development along Alaska's northern coast. Parnell said he does not intend to let that happen.
I hope he doesn't.

I think we need a polar bear hockey team. Can you imagine being cross-checked by a 1,200 pound polar bear? I would pay to see that, as long as it wasn't me!

Me too. I also believe he is sincere when he says it. I'm only afraid there may be nothing he can do to stop them.

That's what happens when you have people from the lower 48 making policy for Alaska. They've never been to Alaska, most likely couldn't find it on the map, but their going to tell you what you can and can not do. How many times has a sitting President visited Alaska? Yet, they going to make policy that effects every Alaskans life. I would suggest that Alaska packs up all the Polar Bears and send them to Washington D.C.
