Tom Toles, the Washington Post editorial page political cartoonist, is almost certainly the top of the ranks when it comes to political cartoons on the critical issue of Global Warming. His commentaries on Bush Administration policies when it comes to the most critical issue of the century are highly accurate … and damning.
Consider his cartoon for today, 17 April 2008, the day after George W Bush’s (how can I make the) Climate Change speech. The White House, with “US Climate Policy” is floating at sea, headed toward “polar ice”. When it comes to this threat, however, “Our intermediate plan is that it will be gone before we hit it.”
With Toles, we don’t know whether to laugh or cry. But, he last won the Pulitzer Prize for editorial cartooning in 1990. His cartooning related to global warming is top notch and merits viewership … and recognition.
