sage.elijah : So which is more important, one species of bear and the least successful of its genius in the arctic, or tens of thousands of genera in temeperate, subtropical and tropical regions.

allie_c64 : Nonsense. We are not destroying it. The ice caps have melted and frozen since the beginning of time and it has had nothing to do with us. Specialized animals die off. A static world isn't healthy, natural.. or possible.
