“PBIP: Polar Bear-Induced Paralysis”

My new column asks if we want to backdoor Kyoto through the Endangered Species Act.

UPDATE: The Washington Post reports on a second effort to use the ESA to impose hydrocarbon emission controls:

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced yesterday that it will evaluate whether four kinds of seals inhabiting Alaska‘s Bering Sea should be placed on the endangered species list because of melting sea ice.

In December, an environmental group, the Center for Biological Diversity, petitioned NOAA’s Fisheries Service to list ribbon seals as facing extinction because global warming has affected the extent of ice cover in both the Bering and Chukchi seas, where the seals live. NOAA officials said they will review the status of bearded, spotted and ringed seals, as well, because they all use the same sea ice in different ways, at different times of the year.
