MSNBC’s Chris Hayes said he was “confused” about the climate change summit and asked Frostpaw the arrested polar bear to tell him what to think.
“I’m just like, so confused, right?” Hayes told the bear. “There’s just 150 countries, and everyone seems to be saying we should do something.”
Frostpaw told Hayes that the world needs “specific, binding emissions cuts from different countries,” and that the United States must lead the charge.
Hayes frantically picked up a pen and paper to jot down Frostpaw’s expert advice.
“Frostpaw” is also known as Peter Galvin, one of the founding members of the Center for Biological Diversity
During the interview, Hayes also praised the bear as “so committed to nonviolent protest he was willing to go to jail.”
Galvin was arrested — in full costume — during Monday’s Flood Wall Street Protest. He was one of approximately 100 people to be arrested for refusing police orders to disperse, but not before National Review Online got some dire predictions straight from the bear’s mouth. (Warning: NSFW language.)
Frostpaw has made headlines in the past for “stalking” President Obama. The bear has made appearances at several of the family’s vacations, the White House, and various presidential stops in locations ranging from Miami to San Francisco.
The Center for Biological Diversity defines itself as an organization that uses “science, law and creative media” to “to secure a future for all species, great and small, hovering on the brink of extinction.”
