Agent Smith: I’d like to share a revelation that I’ve had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species and I realized that you’re not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment but you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed and the only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You’re a plague and we are the cure.

An emaciated polar bear has wandered into a Russian industrial city in Siberia – hundreds of kilometres away from its natural Arctic habitat.

The visibly weak female bear lay despondently on the ground for hours in Norilsk in northern Siberia on Tuesday.

Global warming

Environmentalists say wild animals are suffering from the shrinking hunting environment and receding ice as the Arctic gets warmer due to global warming, prompting some to venture south in search of food.

Compared with the rest of the world, the Arctic is warming twice as fast.
