Climate Deniers, All Washed Up

By Mark Fiore

Climate change deniers, backed by the measly 3 percent of scientists who think global warming is phooey, keep saying it's too expensive to do something about the global destruction that most of us can see is occurring before our "eyeballs." One of Mark Fiore's cavemen, however, has discovered otherwise. Read about the discovery below and watch as Ogg and Uck discuss the world's demise in Fiore's latest animation, "Climate Deniers, All Washed Up."

Ogg & Uck are back, this time talking about collapsing ice sheets and sea level rise. As usual, mayhem is headed their way, but they're pretty much just still a couple of arguing cave men.

The latest IPCC report on global warming is not entirely doom and gloom. One bright spot is that it's relatively cheap to do something about all of this. We don't need to bring our world economy to a screeching halt, even though that is what the big oil and coal companies would like you to think.

Ice sheets and glaciers are melting and sea levels are on the rise. We can wait until the massive relocations, wars and destruction begin, and spend bazillions of dollars then, or we can take this seriously now. So far it seems like we're doomed to be a species of serious procrastinators. (Be sure to check out some of the news stories behind this cartoon.)
