Ahh, There It Is …

This story is what I’ve been waiting for. It was a matter of time.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Less than a month after declaring polar bears a threatened species because of global warming, the Bush administration is giving oil companies permission to annoy and potentially harm them in the pursuit of oil and natural gas.

The Fish and Wildlife Service issued regulations this week providing legal protection to seven oil companies planning to search for oil and gas in the Chukchi Sea off the northwestern coast of Alaska if “small numbers” of polar bears or Pacific walruses are incidentally harmed by their activities over the next five years.

I am requesting legal representation as well whenever I do something. Sometimes I wonder if this was one of the reasons we’ve had such high gas prices in the first place.

Between the cracks, that’s where these stories always are.
