I’m going to try to avoid having so much emphasis on one arena of the political sphere so much. If I made all of my cartoons about watermelon environmentalism, people would get really bored really fast. I want variety, and I’m sure my readers do, too. I wanted to make sure that IDS readers were properly introduced to Libby. Not everyone reads the blog (who am I kidding, no one does), so I wanted to make sure I at least provided a name drop. In hindsight, I should have run this cartoon first and saved my ‘save the planet’ cartoon for another time.
It’s really the epitome of arrogance, though. Not only are we dooming the fate of the planet by our production of relatively miniscule amounts of carbon dioxide (now considered a “pollutant” by the Supreme Court… I don’t like halitosis either, but come on), but we can now control the
weather climate (whatever) by seizing control over the means of production. Hubris.
What do you think of today’s cartoon? Let me know in the comments!
