The article features Cute Knut, the polar bear cub born in the Berlin Zoo that travels around Europe to generate publicity for a conference on the protection of bears to be hosted by Germany in 2008. The famous polar bear's role is to draw attention to the threat posed by carbon dioxide emissions to bears' natural habitats. Knut, rejected by his circus artist mother and raised by zookeepers, was officially adopted by federal environment minister Sigmar Gabriel, who now pays for his keep.
