One of the "highlights" of Gov. Mike Easley’s final budget (wow, it’s good to say that), is wanting to spend $2.7 million to build a Polar Bear exhibit at the NC Zoo in Asheboro.
Apparently our existing Polar Bear containment area isn’t up to Canadian standards for us to give them their bears.
Today, the US Interior Department added polar bears to the list of "threatened species" due to "the decline in Arctic Sea Ice from global warming."
Well, if the Arctic is getting too warm, what do you call August in central North Carolina?
