Happy World Environment Day!

Posted on: June 5, 2018

Today, June 5, is World Environment Day.  Since I started cartooning (decades ago), the environment has always been one of my favourite topics. 

I don’t mean favourite in the sense that doing cartoons about the environment is easy, it’s depressing to see how we continue to treat out planet, as if we could just go out and get another one when this one is completely ruined. Climate change through burning of fossil fuels, destruction of habitat – often to mine those same fossil fuels, but also to keep up with our insatiable needs as a species.

So many policies and practices are incredibly short-sighted, even though many people responsible for them do know at some level the harm that they are doing.  I have to admit most of my environment cartoons are pretty depressing. Here’s a recent one, originally published in The Age.

    It’s even harder when you draw a comic strip with an environmental theme! Keep fighting the good fight.
