The week began with the IPCC’s dire report about climate change. And my Nib cartoon for the week also covered it:

 I know defeatism is not cool and we’re supposed to take this warning to be spurred into demanding action from our government, but have you met our government?

We’re living in the disaster right now, and Biden is urging OPEC to pump more oil. Not sure the Sunrise Movement is on that fossil’s agenda.

Now I’m off to endure the third or fourth heat wave of Boston’s summer.

Pretty neat that every cable subscription underwrites Murdoch’s trash that’s been undermining democracy for 25+ years.

As for actual weather news, my phone’s been telling me to prepare for lots of flooding tomorrow due to Elsa’s remnants. If that’s the worst weather we get this summer, I’ll consider myself lucky.

Secondary Climate Emergencies

We just had a lengthy heat wave here in Boston. This year’s droughts are going to make last year’s wildfires look like nothing. New records for carbon in the atmosphere are being set every week.

And the infrastructure bill that may or may not happen is having all climate mitigation efforts stripped out of it.

See you next week with more jokes!

I hope Hyannisport has enough boats for when the Kennedy Compound floods.

That U.N. report bummed me out, but resigning yourself to letting it happen only makes sense if you’re a billionaire who can go move yourself and an ark’s worth of animals into your private Moon bunker.

Right-Wing Stuntman

Right-Wing StuntmanTed Cruz is the Republican Party’s last chance to pull their nomination away from Trump, even though his policies and people skills are just as terrible, if not worse. After the bombings in Brussels, Cruz advocated for policing and monitoring of Muslim communities in the US. If that’s better than Trump’s plan to deny Muslims entry into the United States, that’s straining the definition of the word “better.”

While drawing this cartoon, I came across a phenomenon that might explain why Ted Cruz’s face is so unsettling: His teeth are rarely visible, make his face look like one of these carnival games:
