The Perfect Gift


The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge turns 50 today. It's holding up pretty well, as seen in this NASA satellite birthday portrait from July. (Right now it would resemble the famous picture of polar bears in a snowstorm.) But with the "drill, baby, drill" crowd back in Washington, the birthday candles on its next cake might resemble oil derricks. So what better time to give our favorite caribou-and-grizzly playground the gift of permanent protection? You can put that bug in President Obama's ear at http://arcticlove.org.
