The Rubber Dodo Award

The 2008 Rubber Dodo award has been made by the Center for Biological Diversity in the US. It has gone to Sarah Palin the Governor of Alaska. as well as denying global warming was caused by greenhouse gases she lied about and suppressed State scientific reviews and then tried to block legislation to protect the Polar Bear.

Perhaps being in Alaska makes you welcome global warming and if you are afraid of Polar Bears it’s only natural to want them shot! As for lying and suppressing evidence, don’t politicians do that all the time?

The Center for Biological Diversity presented Interior Secretary Dirk Kempthorne with its first ever "Rubber Dodo" award, in 2007 in honour of going a record one year and 90 days without listing a new species as endangered or threatened despite the Fish and Wildlife Service classifying 279 species as "candidates" for listing, because they were in danger of extinction.
