The Climateers!

Posted on Jan 16, 2014

By Mark Fiore

Mark Fiore has a couple of things to say about his latest animation regarding climate change and the Polar Vortex sweeping through parts of the U.S. in the past month:
Contrary to popular belief, global warming did not end because of the Polar Vortex. If all you did was watch mainstream cable news, you'd think the entire world was covered with snow and freezing. While it's made for some great icy news footage, the media have portrayed a pretty United States-centric view of the world. Actually, it's a half-the-United States-centric view of the world. California, for example, is in drought conditions and there are forest fires happening in normally snow covered and rain-soaked mountains!
