Should polar bears be listed as a threatened species?

"No, the earth goes through natural warming and cooling processes. Polar bears have been there thousands of years. They probably know exactly what they're going to need to do to survive." - Dillon West

"Yes, because they are beautiful creatures and need protection from what we have done to their environment and population." - Tabby Newman

"No, they had a good run." - David Pitt

"No, because they are still around and they can take care of themselves." - James Lewis

"No." - Bea Findlay

"Absolutely. Who hasn't seen the awful pictures on TV etc. of the bears adrift. Since the North Pole may be open water, it makes sense the bears are endangered." - MJ Michaels
