  1. #1 Santa Goes Green. 
    Children's Book Depicts Santa Fighting Global Warming

    'Santa Goes Green' pushes eco-agenda with story of boy who forgoes toys to save polar bear habitat.

    ’Tis the season … to be green. No, not even the traditions of Christmas are immune to the efforts of global warming activism.

    No, it’s not Al Gore’s, “How Greenhouse Gases Stole Christmas,” but a children’s story is pushing a similar green agenda. The recently published book by Anne Margaret Lewis called “Santa Goes Green” is about a boy who writes Santa and asks him to help raise awareness about global warming so that his adopted polar bear won’t lose its home.

    “You see, it’s like this Santa,” the book reads. “I’ve adopted a polar bear named Leopold. He is in danger of losing his home. I’m sure you being in the North Pole you know about the melting glaciers. All I want this year Santa, is to save Leopold and his home.”

    Santa Claus visits the boy, takes him to see the polar bear and then in a moment of eco-awakening, he makes his operations at the North Pole green.

    “They arrived back at the North Pole and Santa had a grand idea,” the book reads. “He leaned in toward Swift [the head elf] and told him his new plan. ‘We will collect all of the old toys, Swift, and make them new again. We will reuse last year’s wrapping paper. And we will harness the great North Pole wind to help power up the toy shop.’”

    For those tempted to purchase the book, a preview is available on the publisher’s Web site.

    It doesn't get any "Greener" than Reindeer.

    Al Gore could learn from this if he would stop travelling the globe in his fleet of aircraft for his self aggrandizing and self promoting FAKE cause. He could also park his SUV's.

    Does this stupid story tell the kids about how many MORE polar bears there are when the weather warms and food is abundant?

    On the upside, seals won't need as much Ice space due to the decimation of their population.
