The polar bear (according to the newest encyclopedias)
I stand by my words, Sir. This article is from a major Liberal Canadian newspaper.
What everybody got wrong about that viral video of a starving polar bear:Dubbed the ‘Face of Climate Change,’ a starving polar bear photographed in Canada’s Arctic might have nothing to do with climate change
I'll go for points, Noor: 1. Matching words like "climate change" and "propaganda" is silly at the least, as I would say "information" instead, as climate change exists and it should be fought at the best of our possibilities. 2. I'd suggest you to take a look at the Q/A of National Geographic and to consult every link they provide, cause I'm afraid you lack some information over what you're talking about: https://news.nationalgeographic.com/2017/12/starving-polar-bear-video-climate-change-spd/. 3. "Symbol", is the word you want to get info over, as well, cause this bear is a representation of what pollution can cause - seasonal ice disappears for longer periods, for example - and it can sensitize people pushing them to act. It is true that polar bears are not in immediate peril, but this doesn't mean any debate or worry over their health is useless. Btw, I'm waiting for your cartoon against the use of this bear for "propaganda" :)
Polar bears grow old and skinny and die just like humans. This is an OLD polar bear. Polar bear populations in Canada are HUGE and healthy. This is climate change propaganda to show them as a dying breed. Misleading and inaccurate imagery.
