Confused and Dazed
1 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wonderfully filmed and well edited. One question though. Why do we rescue oil covered seals and birds? Because if we don't they will die and after all mankind caused their predicament. Would it have killed anyone to save the baby polar bear? Especially if they are dying because of mankind? If they are threatened then isn't each one precious? Fine, you can show the plight of the bear, but you do NOT have to stand there and film it until it is dead!!!! Take it to a zoo!! Every day sick seals are found on the beach and we swoop in with vets and nurse them back to health. Sorry Polar bear, you're not worth saving because we need you to die to make a point. This is the kind of dimwitted environmental religion that drives me insane.
