Polar bear to be protected as a 'threatened' species

I'm ecstatic to announce that less than an hour ago the Associated Press reported that the polar bear is to be protected as a 'threatened' species under the Endangered Species Act. This historic move marks the first time a species is officially listed as threatened by global warming, and is a great step forward in the fight.

I want to thank each and every one of you who took part - whether it was sending in public comments, telling your friends, donating money, collecting signatures, or writing letters, your action and support made this happen.

I also encourage you to make a donation to Environmental Action in honor of this historic event - click here to give on our secure site, and help us continue promoting positive action on behalf of the environment.

Good work today everybody. I'm proud of all of us.
