“Global warm­ing has has­tened the melt­ing of the Arc­tic ice pack and caused more and more po­lar bears to starve to death.”

A er­ro­neous post which claimed that tem­per­a­tures at the North Pole had risen to 32 Cel­sius in sum­mer quickly spread in the Chi­nese on­line com­mu­nity. Although it ul­ti­mately turned out to be un­true, its vi­ral spread re­flected grow­ing anx­i­ety about cli­mate change. On Au­gust 3, a blog­ger on cam­pus life and news in Chengdu, Sichuan Prov­ince, posted sev­eral photos of skinned po­lar bears taken by a Ger­man pho­tog­ra­pher in 2015 and ap­pealed for peo­ple to help slow down cli­mate change.
