July 2020 – Climate

This month’s topic was going to be something starting with T to keep with the alphabetical sequence, but given we are still in the throes of the covid-19 crisis, I decided to break with the alphabet for a second month, and do Climate instead. Because even though we are pretty preoccupied with the virus, we must not forget that the planet in crisis too. We must beware of nefarious forces using the pandemic for their own ends, pushing things through while we are distracted. While we’re all worrying about whether we are washing our hands correctly and whether we have enough toilet paper, the conservative forces are seeing a wonderful chance to lobby hard for more mining, more logging, less environmental controls, ever greater abilities to destroy our precious planet. 

Every month this website will feature a dozen to twenty Horacek cartoons on a chosen topic. I choose the topics alphabetically. All cartoons are © Judy Horacek. I’d rather you didn’t use these cartoons without my permission, but if you must, I’d appreciate it if you acknowledge my authorship and the source.  They are cartoons, not memes! But you’re very welcome to tweet the link to this page. Cartoons this month were first published in The Age and Overland. They have all been re-published in various Horacek cartoon collections.
