Polar Bears and Species Extinction

Unfortunate impacts will get worse as the climate warms, like the POLAR BEARS that are increasingly in difficulty because the arctic ice is melting. Many other animals and plants are in real trouble from effects of global warming, and many species will become extinct due to global warming if we do not act. See HERE for more information.
