POLAR Bear Watch: Anorak’s look at polar bears in the news, ands Sarah Palin

PALIN: the real scandal. Leonard Doyle in Anchorage Alaska investigates the damning environmental record of the woman who may soon be in the White House”

Isn’t the Indy’s woman in thermal underwear in Alaska to check out a woman who may not have been vetted properly?

Here’s Doyle on polar bear huntin’ Palin and doomed polar bears, doomed by oil:

But the woman who could soon be a 72-year-old’s heartbeat away from the United States presidency has an environmental policy so toxic it would make the incumbent, George Bush, blush.

Is Dubya blushing? He’s turning red… purple…blue… We have a pretzl situation.

She wants to start drilling. She wants to block US moves to list the polar bear as an endangered species. And she has allowed big game hunters to shoot Alaska’s bears and wolves from low-flying planes.

The polar bear is endangered? It’s under threat from media types and journalists. But it’s thriving in Germany. What’s yours called? And shooting bears from low flying planes sounds better than shooting them high-flying planes.

And if you don’t shoot the bears, then the moose get eaten. Although the moose might get shot as well, when Palin takes the call of the wild.

Wildlife managers want to kill 900 to 1,400 black bears in the 11,000-square-mile area across Cook Inlet northwest of Anchorage because the bears are eating too many moose, said Suzan Bowen, Department of Fish and Game regulations program coordinator.

Less bears. More moose.

Moose number about 3,200 to 4,000 in that unit, the state estimates. Biologists want 6,500 to 7,500 moose, Bowen said.

Says Dolye, who has travelled to Alaska by environmentally friendly canoe and snow shoe:

It is illegal to hunt polar bears [oops!], and that is not about to change. But in an area known as “Polar Bear Seas”, from Point Hope on Alaska’s far western edge to the pristine coastal plain of the Arctic National Wildlife Reserve, one tenth of the world’s polar bear population is at risk [fact?], as well as beluga and bowheaded whales and bearded and spotted seals.

Can they be shot to make more room for they polar bears..?
