Today’s cartoon is for the environmental movement and what I consider a failure of public opinion. Many of my friends on social media are sharing this article which asks the question why people can’t believe in Global Warming if the majority of scientists do. On one post by fellow Cincinnatian Craig Froehle I wrote the following:
I think the Environmental movement made a grave mistake years ago when pushing the Global Warming agenda. Not saying it is true but even those who believe in Global Warming will point to history of it happening on earth and question whether the current climate change is man made or natural.
Pollution seemed to be something people could grasp as it was something visual they could see and see the effects of making better choices. IMO many of the strides we made years ago to fight pollution are being stalled as people debate Global Warming.
Pollution and the impact of it is a visible thing. So when we clean our rivers or our air, we can see a visual impact of our efforts which in turn helps decrease issues with Global Warming. But now we are hung up in a debate whether it is man-made or naturally occurring.
What do you think?

Today’s cartoon was done for another friend who started Project Blue Collar that raises awareness and encourages people to adopt rescue dogs. Might have a few more coming soon.
I’d be surprised if this cartoon hasn’t been done by someone but I purposefully didn’t look so it wouldn’t impact my vision. For the unaware, the “grumpy cat” on the left is the original grumpy one - Garfield the Cat. The unsuspecting feline is the internet meme sensation Grumpy Cat.
I would think I might have issues with someone else taking my gig too. Now I need to figure out what that gig is.
Seems actor George Takei isn’t just famous for his stellar acting on Star Trek. He has parlayed his celebrity into appearances on the Howard Stern show and is something of a Social Media icon – especially on Facebook. And several times from an unmentioned cartoonist friend of ours. As you all know I am a big proponent of those who share other’s work to provide credit where you found it. It isn’t too hard even if you found the picture/cartoon on google because many artists, including yours truly, puts their URL on the image.
George, or whomever is posting for him, doesn’t seem to always have the time for that so he just takes it and posts it as is. Interesting that someone who is in the intellectual property business seems to miss that courtesy.
Any other celebrities that I should spoof their social media habits into a future definition?
NOTE: For those who were here yesterday I didn’t like my caricature of George Takei so I updated it.
