Movie offers glimpse of polar bear life

February 20th, 2009

KGO-San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO — A groundbreaking documentary about polar bears makes its West Coast premiere in San Francisco this weekend. The film is a spectacular look at polar bear life on Alaskan ice fields and how the bears are being threatened by oil and gas drilling and climate change. The filmmaker hopes his production will show people why polar bears are worth saving.

The Beaufort Sea is about as remote an area as one can imagine – north of Alaska – covered most of the year by ice.

Palin, Biden: Where They Stand On Energy And The Environment

September 10th, 2008

By Shermakaye Bass

Republican presidential candidate Arizona Sen. John McCain, who has historically opposed drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR), has been uncharacteristically taciturn on the energy issue since he chose pro-drilling Alaskan Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate.

Green-energy proponents find that ominous.

“With the pick of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin for his running mate, John McCain’s race towards the Bush administration’s failed energy policy is now complete,” Sierra Club executive director Carl Pope said recently. “… No one is closer to the the oil industry than Governor Palin. Along with her support for drilling in the Arctic Wildlife Refuge and off our coasts, she also opposes a windfall profit tax on the richest oil companies. …She has been dismissive of alternative energy, saying ‘alternative-energy solutions are far from imminent and would require more than 10 years to develop’, when in reality it is the oil she would like to drill that would take a decade to bring to market.”

The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) in Washington, D.C., showed a similar concern over Palin.

“Obviously, it’s a very disappointing pick for a (presidential) candidate who at one time made a priority of getting us away from the old fossil fuels of the past – Sen. McCain,” said David Sandretti, the League’s communications director.
