This picture was just too cute to pass up.  Thanks Treehugger! We should probably also mention the more serious point of this picture.  The polar bears are in trouble.  Global warming is quickly melting their habitat.  According to NRDC the bears are also under pressure from other man made threats including toxic chemicals, over hunting and industrial development.

“Scientific data from NASA and the National Oceans and Atmospheric Administration shows that over the past three decades, more than a million square miles of sea ice (1,609,344 kilometers) – an area the size of Norway, Denmark, and Sweden combined have disappeared.”  Please see NRDC’s website for more information on this.
