About – Climate Cartoons


About this site

It would be easier not to draw cartoons about climate change.

But I am doing so because:

  • I believe climate change to be the biggest challenge facing humankind.
  • I wrote a blog post 10 years ago saying I was going to do so. Better late than never I suppose.
  • Sometimes cartoons can communicate in a way that words can’t.
  • Better to talk about climate than ignore it and hope it goes away, which it isn’t going to.

I don’t for a minute overestimate my own importance. On one level cartoons don’t change a thing. But if just possibly these cartoons help conversations along, or influence some people who can change things, or can be used by someone who does have the power to change things, then they will have been worthwhile.

I hope I don’t come across as preaching. I don’t have all the answers. It is entirely likely that I will produce cartoons I fail to live up to.
