Take The Thermostat Challenge In Honor Of International Polar Bear Day
(Source: Polar Bear International)
Polar Bears International (PBI) is calling for a day of action with a "Thermostat Challenge" in honor of International Polar Bear Day. By pledging to adjust the thermostat down a bit (or up in the heat) to reduce carbon emissions, the organization asks that people make every day a Polar Bear Day. According to PBI, steps like this and speaking up for a sustainable future through elected officials, including a far price for carbon, will help slow and even reverse global warming, which causes sea ice to melt. (Polar Bears use this ice in their habitat to reach prey and cannot survive without it.) There's even a Thermostat Challenge tool kit and a community page on the website for posting local initiatives.
