Fossil Fuel Addiction Driving Polar Bears to Extinction says WWF-Canada

TORONTO, May 2 /CNW/ – The World Conservation Union (IUCN) released the
2006 Red List of Threatened Species today revealing the ongoing decline of the
status of plants and animals. On that list the polar bear has been moved to
the threatened category and listed as Vulnerable, and defined as a species
that is ‘threatened with global extinction’. The Red List is an effective
guide to show the net effects that continual habitat loss, over-exploitation,
pollutants, climate change and the introduction of invasive plants and species
into new areas are having on our planet.
