Polar bear dance party to protect Arctic Ocean

MIAMI — A polar bear dance party in Miami is aimed at raising awareness about the need to protect the Arctic Ocean.

The dancers are expected to dress as polar bears Saturday afternoon. The dance party will raise awareness of plans to start drilling this summer in the Arctic’s Beaufort and Chukchi seas, both home to polar bears.

The dance is being held by the Sierra Club, Alaska Wilderness League, Center for Biological Diversity, Oceana, Endangered Species Coalition, and Natural Resources Defense Council.

These dances are not just in Miami, but also elsewhere. See here.

Around 20 Greenpeace activists boarded a Shell-contracted icebreaker in Helsinki harbour today – locking themselves onto the vessel in a bid to prevent it setting sail for the Arctic: here.

Polar bears are evolutionarily older and genetically more distinct than believed. This largest Arctic carnivore evolved as early as 600,000 years ago, five times older than previously recognized: here.

Before It’s Too Late in the Arctic. Subhankar Banerjee, Climate Story Tellers: “What do Arctic drilling and drone killing have in common? They are both being decided by Barack Obama without public debate…. Obama got personally involved and fast-tracked Shell’s drilling permits. According to Foreign Policy magazine, ‘Barack Obama has become George W. Bush on steroids.’ The article makes this reference with regard to Obama’s drone killing, but perhaps a similar thing could be said about his Arctic drilling that we must condemn”: here.

  1. Greenpeace bids to stop Arctic drilling

    Arctic: Greenpeace has launched a global campaign to limit oil drilling and overfishing.

    The environmentalist group was pressing the UN earth conference in Rio de Janeiro for the North Pole to receive the same sort of protection as Antarctica, which was declared off-limits more than 20 years ago.

    Greenpeace wants a ban on oil drilling and an end to unsustainable fishing.
