Polar bears stranded on thin ice in the great debate: energy, environment economy

Polar bears stranded on thin ice in the great debate: energy, environment economy: I have been following issues related to the Arctic as canary in the dramatic changes in the melting of the sea ice. I Dugg this article entitled "Polar Bears Wait-Listed as Endangered" added it to del.icio.us/ocean.flynnand blogged it on papergirls. blog. This background is a detail from an acrylic painting I did in 2000 entitled Nukara. I used Adobe Photoshop to blend watery effects, ripples and waves. After creating a tag cloud in the text layer, using different font colour and size, I rasterized and liquified it.
