Monster Steps Up for the Polar Bears

Elizabeth from the Monster Blog had a great entry yesterday about little things we can all do at work to help conserve energy and protect the environment.  It seems her son and his friend are concerned about global warming and how Polar Bears are suffering because of warmer temperatures.

  5. Saving the Polar Bear

    On New Year’s Eve morning, our 6-year-old, towheaded neighbor, George, came screaming through the front door. “The polar bear is getting extinct,” he yelled. “It’s global warming. It’s killing them.” Our children had been talking about this very topic …
