ANCIENT ICE SHELF BREAKS FREE FROM CANADIAN ARCTICGlobal warming is having an 
alarming and dramatic impact on arctic ice shelves in the Canadian Arctic. 
Scientists have discovered that a giant ice shelf the size of 11,000 football 
fields broke free from the coast of Ellesmere Island, about 500 miles south of 
the North Pole. Shockingly, the shelf broke off in just an hour, and the 
collapse was so powerful that earthquake monitors over 150 miles away recorded 
the tremors. It is the largest event of its kind in Canada in 30 years, and 
scientists consider global warming a major contributing factor.

THE BEAR FACTSGlobal warming is threatening polar bears with extinction, due to 
the fact that warmer temperatures are melting the sea ice the bears rely on. 
Finally, the Bush administration has proposed to list the polar bear as 
threatened under the Endangered Species Act. 
As the Washington Post recently reported, "Identifying polar bears as 
threatened with extinction could have an enormous political and practical 
impact… Because scientists have concluded that carbon dioxide from power-plant 
and vehicle emissions is helping drive climate change worldwide, putting polar 
bears on the endangered species list raises the legal question of whether the 
government would be required to compel U.S. industries to curb their carbon 
dioxide output."
