Comic takedown of global warming denial

Daryl Cunningham is a British skeptic and cartoonist who makes brilliant cartoon panels on topics antiscientific. He’s covered homeopathy, Moon hoaxers, and antivaxxers, and now he has dipped his toe into the rising sea levels of climate change denialism.

I really like Darryl’s style; whimsical but on-target. He’s careful to present the facts, and to be balanced where called for. The drawings help make the information easier to understand and ingest, which I find fascinating and could be a topic of a post on its own. A comic like this can go a lot further toward increasing awareness of the basics of climate change and its deniers. I hope he continues to create these panels; they are a real boon for skepticism and reality.
