Ruling: Polar bears canít be used to regulate CO2

Some good news on the ridiculous polar bears are endangered because of climate change front. It seems the linkage to CO2 has been..ahem, denied.

I like this part:

Sullivan said that Fish and Wildlife Service failed to conduct a proper environmental review when creating the protections for the polar bear. The agency must now go back and conduct an environmental assessment of the outcome of the rule, and consider other options.

Oh, that’s gotta hurt.

Alaska Representative Don Young said:

The lawsuits to list the polar bear as endangered were never about protecting polar bears. Instead they were nothing more than a back door approach to regulate CO2 and stop responsible development from moving forward. This is a good decision, not only for Alaska but for this nation as we look to become more energy independent.

Looks like “polarbeargate” is now a complete collapse of the mission.

interesting – The ‘opinion’ in the AP article has a somewhat different slant.

US judge orders more review on polar bears

“WASHINGTON (AP) — A federal judge has thrown out a key section of an Interior Department rule that said the threat to polar bears posed by global warming could not be used to limit industrial development.

Environmental groups had sued, saying the polar bear needed more protection under the Endangered Species Act. The state of Alaska and hunting groups argued that the listing was unnecessary.

Along with the listing, then-Interior Secretary Dirk Kempthorne created a “special rule” stating that the Endangered Species Act would not be used to set climate policy or limit greenhouse gas emissions, which contribute to global warming and melting ice in the Arctic Ocean.

It was that aspect of the rule that Sullivan set aside on Monday.”

But I thought polar bears were the world’s leading experts on the physical properties of gases!?!

Since polar bears exhale CO2, they should also be included in those scheduled to reduce their overall discharge.

Interesting development. Perhaps the last attempt at using polar bears as a means to raid our pockets.
