Abandoning his environmentalist base and flipping on another campaign promise, Obama will keep the Bush era policy against applying threatened species standards to the poor defenseless polar bear.
...Interior Secretary Ken Salazar refused to rescind a Bush administration rule that says actions that threaten the polar bear's survival cannot be considered when safeguarding the iconic mammal if they occur outside the bear's Arctic home.
The rule was aimed at heading off the possibility that the bear's survival could be cited by opponents of power plants and other facilities that produce carbon dioxide, a leading pollutant blamed for global warming.
So, if I'm understanding this, the polar bear is to be sacrificed for the good of the Stop the CO2 Movement even though CO2 is a bogus bogey man meant to scare us into producing less CO2, thus protecting the lives of polar bears, so that the pro-sanity folks can't use the polar bear survival as an arguement against CO2 pollution. If you think you are missing the logic of Obama, don't despair, there isn't any.
Personally, I think Obama looks more like Tuvok, the far less logical and engaging Vulcan of Voyager.
Either way, Obama lied. Vulcans don't.
