With climate guru Al Gore's announcement at the Copenhagen Climate Summit that there would be no Arctic ice within five years, a group of hardy environmentalists put together a crash program to save the polar bears.

The Generous Environmentalists Totally Saving All Polar Organisms (GETSAPO) said that they would be evacuating all polar bears to Antarctica.

Tori Reeves, a spokesperson for GETSAPO, said that this bold undertaking would be accomplished through an unprecedented cooperative effort of all multinational environmental corporations.

Greenprice International, the Amsterdam-based multinational with jurisdiction over the world's garbage and whales, said it would dedicate five luxury yachts from its ocean fleet to the effort.

'Our sacrifice of five luxury yachts was a difficult decision for our divisional vice presidents, as they tend to spend the winter in the Bahamas', said Henedikt Baerlin, a member of the group. 'We will have to relax our carbon emissions policy somewhat, and fly them to the Bahamas on our Learjets instead.'
