Relocate the Endangered Polar Bears to Mt. Shasta?

Mt. Shasta + Polar Bears = !!! WINNER !!!

On Yahoo! News today:
MOUNT SHASTA, Calif. - Global warming is shrinking glaciers all over the world, but the seven tongues of ice creeping down Mount Shasta's flanks are a rare exception: They are the only long-established glaciers in the lower 48 states that are growing.

Reaching more than 14,000 feet above sea level, Mount Shasta is one of the state's tallest peaks, dominating the landscape of high plains and conifer forests in far Northern California. Nearby Indian tribes referred to its glaciers as the footsteps made by the creator when he descended to Earth. Hikers flock to Shasta every summer to scale them.
Hmm, does that mean we could save the Polar Bears by moving them to Mt. Shasta? Polar Bears and Redwood trees -- together at last!
