Hilarious Polar Bear News!

Why Aren’t the Bears Laughing?

The state of Alaska is suing the federal government because it says listing polar bears as a threatened species is hurting Alaskan oil and gas exploration and development, commercial fisheries, transportation and tourism. In other words, the polar bears had no right to be there!

“We believe that … decision to list the polar bear was not based on the best scientific and commercial data available,” Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said.

“Additional regulation of the species and its habitat under the Endangered Species Act will deter activities such as commercial fisheries, oil and gas exploration and development, transportation and tourism within and off-shore of Alaska,” the lawsuit said.

A spokesperson for one of the environmental groups opposed to the dumbfounding action said:

“The state’s lawsuit isn’t about the science of global warming and polar bears … It is merely doing the bidding of oil companies that want to drill for oil in sensitive polar bear habitat, without any concern for how that oil will impact the climate when it’s burned.”

The lawsuit is also about the inalienable corporate rights [sic.] See The right to disturb wildlife!!

Palin was born as Sarah Louise Heath in Sandpoint, Idaho. Mother of five, she eats moose burgers and rides snowmobiles. She admits that she used marijuana when it was legal in the Alaska, but says that she did not [inhale?] like it.

Palin holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Idaho. She briefly worked in the media and utility industries.

Palin is a lifetime member of the National Rifle Association. Her husband, Todd, works for BP at an oil field on the North Slope and is a commercial fisherman.

“She [then-Mayor Palin] inherited a city with zero debt, but left it with indebtedness of over $22 million. What did Mayor Palin encourage the voters to borrow money for? Was it the infrastructure that she said she supported? The sewage treatment plant that the city lacked? or a new library? No. $1m for a park. $15m-plus for construction of a multi-use sports complex which she rushed through to build on a piece of property that the City didn’t even have clear title to, that was still in litigation 7 yrs later–to the delight of the lawyers
involved!” An excerpt from: A Letter About Sarah Palin from Anne Kilkenny

In June 2007, Palin signed into law the largest operating budget in Alaska’s history: $6.6 billion! (Source: Wikipedia)

    Treacherous Ted is Finally Dead!
    ———————————————————

    Ex-Senator Stevens dies in Alaska plane crash
    http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE6792MJ20100810
    Alaska (Reuters) – Former Senator Ted Stevens, who for several years played a leading role in controlling the nation’s purse strings, died with four other people in a small plane crash in his home state of Alaska, officials said on Tuesday.

    Four people survived Monday night’s crash near Bristol Bay in southwest Alaska. Among them was Sean O’Keefe, North American chief of European aerospace giant and Airbus maker EADS, and a former NASA Administrator who was a former aide and longtime friend of Stevens.

    O’Keefe’s son, Kevin, also survived, the company said in a statement, but details of their condition were not disclosed.

    Stevens, a gruff, hard-charging politician who rose to become chairman of the powerful Senate Appropriations Committee, served 40 years in the Senate, longer than any Republican, before losing a 2008 reelection bid amid a corruption scandal.

    He had been convicted days before the election on charges of failing to report over $250,000 in home renovations and other gifts from an oil executive. The case was later thrown out because of prosecutorial misconduct, including the withholding of exculpatory evidence from defense lawyers.

    Stevens and O’Keefe, 54 and who once worked for the senator on the Appropriations Committee, were on a fishing trip in a remote part of Alaska with other former Senate staff members and their children, according to one congressional source.

    The single-engine, high-wing propeller plane, a DeHavilland DHC-3T, crashed at 8 p.m. local time on Monday (0400 GMT Tuesday), about 10 miles northwest of Aleknagik, a village near the Bristol Bay fishing town of Dillingham, according to the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board.

    The plane was owned by General Communication Inc, an Alaska communications and cable provider.

    The wreckage was spotted late on Monday, and a private team hiked to the site to render medical aid to survivors. Bad weather initially hampered efforts by Alaska National Guard rescuers to reach the scene early on Tuesday.

    The others killed were the pilot, Theron Smith, and passengers William Phillips Sr., GCI senior vice president Dana Tindall and her 16-year old daughter Corey Tindall, according to Alaska’s Department of Public Safety.

    The survivors, who are now in Providence Hospital in Anchorage with varying degrees of injuries, are William Phillips Jr.,Jim Morhard and the O’Keefes.

    The Federal Aviation Administration said no flight plan was filed for the plane, common in Alaska because its vast size and geography make many towns there reachable only by air.

    Alaska has the most licensed pilots per capita and most air miles flown by citizens in the United States. Stevens himself survived a 1978 Learjet crash in Anchorage that killed five people, including his first wife, Ann.

    O’KEEFE CLOSE TO DEFENSE INDUSTRY

    O’Keefe, a former NASA administrator and U.S. Navy secretary, was appointed chief executive of EADS North America in November as the European group vied with Boeing for a contract potentially worth $50 billion for aerial refueling tankers for the U.S. Air Force.

    An EADS statement said the company looked forward to O’Keefe’s “full recovery” and “rapid return.”

    Industry experts said O’Keefe won respect in Washington circles for his aerospace and defense expertise.

    Stevens, a one-time federal prosecutor, was first appointed to the Senate in 1968 to fill the seat vacated by the death of Democratic Sen. Bob Bartlett. He won the seat in a special 1970 election and was repeatedly re-elected by wide margins.

    As the top Republican on the committee in charge of annual government spending, he used his authority to steer billions of federal dollars to his home state for various projects. Perhaps most notorious was the so-called “Bridge to Nowhere,” which became a symbol of runaway government spending. The now-abandoned project would have linked the town of Ketchikan to its island airport at a cost of $398 million.

    The more I hear about the Alaskan governor, the less I like her. What a strange choice. They get the conservative base but erase any promise of having an environmental platform to run on. She opposed protecting the Polar Bear, because its protection threatens the less-endangered oil and gas industry. What is it about evangelicals that are pro-life and anti-environment?

    Leave it to Gary Busey to find a loophole around the Endangered Species act.

    Ted – your friend has every right to say on his blog how he feels about Gov Palin and Sens. Obama and Mccain, but we don’t have to publish his comments here.

    There are three very readable posts about the two Senators and Alaska Sen Stevens at:

    You have difficulty understanding Climate Change and are observationally challenged!

    Alright! How about pollution? Familiar with that concept? Heard of Exxon Valdez?

    Gov. Palin’s point is that the Polar Bear is already protected by the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972. The Polar Bear population in Alaska has dramatically increased over the last 30 years because of this Act. The Polar Bear numbers are not declining and haven’t at all since this act was put into law. It’s not like we are eating Polar Bear burgers in Anchorage. Hunting them has been illegal for 35 years and is punishable by very harsh penalties.

    What this comes down to is that this ESA listing is just a tool for your movement to tie up not only the oil industry in Alaska in endless litigation because you’d like to put them out of business, but because you will litigate that ALL industry in the country contributes to global warming thus violates the Endangered species act which “protects” the Polar Bear. This is all about your global warming religion, and this is the first time a hotly disputed ‘theory’ has ended up being the basis for protecting a species that is showing no decline.

    Your motives have nothing to do with “protecting” the Polar Bear, because listing it will not save one Polar bear. So how about cutting the smarmy remarks about people who know your true motives and are not buying into it.

  19. I hope they pull it off. Polar bears, like the wolves who recently got their federal protection back, need our help, especially now with rapid global warming.
