    Because no one will read any of the originals, or the critique, we present Comics of the Current Predicament (CCP) here:

    It’s a short pleasant trip, we promise! Enlightening too, on the state of the media and why the ‘News Biz’ is presently killing Democracy. It’s a very lucrative pastime that your tax dollars subsidize too, BTW. JMP

    What a nut job. And No, climate science deniers can’t claim to be ‘smarter’. The Arctic is disappearing for the 1st time in recorded human history. One third gone from the levels seen and recorded in the late 1950s-1960s. We’ll live to see an ‘ice free’ navigation lane though the Arctic in the next 25 years. So see? You can do that almost w/o any of those ‘tricky numbers’ being ‘disputed’.
