National Geographic finally comes clean: Super viral video of polar bear “starving from climate change” was totally fake news

Last year, a pair of photographers from National Geographic captured disturbing video footage of an emaciated polar bear that they uploaded to the magazine’s website with the opening line: “This is what climate change looks like.” There’s just one problem, though: the polar bear’s plight had absolutely nothing to do with climate change, it has now been revealed.

As it turns out, the entire video and corresponding story was 100 percent fake news designed to push the climate change conspiracy theory – a fact that National Geographic now reluctantly admits. But this revelation came after the video had already gone viral, of course, generating more than 2.5 billion views over the past year, becoming the most shared video in National Geographic‘s history.

“We had lost control of the narrative,” claims Cristina Mittermeier, one of the National Geographic photographers who misleadingly stated that the heart-wrenching images of the animal were a direct result of climate change.

Though Mittermeier now openly admits that she deceptively captioned the video with fear-mongering language designed to scare people about climate change, she also somehow claims that it’s the public’s fault for believing her lie. Apparently, the imagery in Mittermeier’s video was not to be taken “literally,” she now insists.

“Photographer Paul Nicklen and I are on a mission to capture images that communicate the urgency of climate change. Documenting its effects on wildlife hasn’t been easy,” Mittermeier wrote in a recent article entitled, “Starving-Polar-Bear Photographer Recalls What Went Wrong,” which blames viewers, and not herself or her colleague, for believing her video’s lies about the polar bear being harmed by climate change.

“With this image, we thought we had found a way to help people imagine what the future of climate change might look like. We were, perhaps, naive. The picture went viral – and people took it literally.”

Mittermeier is a typical liberal who refuses to take responsibility for her own irresponsible and deceptive actions
