Global Warming

Share

Sedona Excentric World staff members take a look at how global warming has affected locals in northern Arizona. This ice cream vendor, recently relocated from somewhere in North Carolina, hit the road on his first day of work hoping to find hundreds of Arizonans lining up to savor his sweet treats. Instead, his first customer was a displaced polar bear. Experiencing rapid ice melting of their Arctic habitat, polar bears are hitting the road.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service recently proposed listing the polar bear as a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act. The Secretary of the Interior announced, “Polar bears are one of nature’s ultimate survivors, able to live and thrive in one of the world’s harshest environments,” he said. “But we are concerned the polar bears’ habitat may literally be melting.” The proposal initiates a 12-month review period, during which time the agency will gather more information before making a final decision. In the meantime, many of the huge, furry mammals are seeking refuge wherever skiers gather. Some are not sure who is more lost, the bear or the ice cream vendor.
