Presidential Polar Bear Post Card Project No. 239 - 9.23.16


These two marine mammals would never meet in the wild, but today the Honorable Senator Bill Nelson (FL) became the 37th member of the Senate to sign to a Bill to protect the Arctic Refuge on Alaska's coastal plain. Manatees and polar bears. #wearethearctic

President Obama has set aside over 265 million acres for federal protection -- more than double the amount of any other President -- in his 23 (and counting) national monument designations thus far. Alaska's coastal plain and the 1002 would be another 1.5 million acres. Easy math - even for a bear!

Another day, another piece of discouraging news about summer ice melt in the Arctic oceans. University of Washington researchers just confirmed a dramatic continuance of early melt-out and late-freeze trajectories for ice that correlates to nearly seven total weeks of less-than-ideal ice conditions for polar bears and other animals. You can read more here, and please send the President your own concerns regarding essential and dramatic decreases in our carbon footprint.

Harts Pass No. 314

Another moment in the "True History of Grit!" -- In this case, from Sept. 7th, 1876, when the good citizens of Northfield, MN turned back the outlaw Jesse James. The foiled bank robbery and subsequent pursuit thusly resulted in the death and capture of multiple members of the James Unger Gang. Dedicated as well to the Defeat of Jesse James Day's festivities and to the annual kick-off to each of my years at Carleton College :)
