    What on Earth is this leading up to anyway? Some kind of statement on Rapid Global Climate Change? Or something entirely different?

    I hope not. Alley Oop has always stayed away from politics. Making a statement on global warming could be very harmful to this strip.

    An inconvenient truth, Alley “Gore” Oop!

    I do like the improved art, the three panel format, and the intelligent dialog.

    If there happens to be a statement coming up on Climate Change, I myself would keep on reading the strip with even more interest. There are still too many people denying CC. If the science contradicts their beliefs, they’ll go with their beliefs (which is pretty silly). True scientists will do everything they can to prove their own idea wrong and when they fail they say, “Provisionally speaking, there might be a germ of truth here—so let’s see where this idea takes us.”

    Alley Oop avoiding politics? Didn’t the last story arc revolve around politics? What with that so-called lawyer, Doowee proposing that Moo dump King Gus, become a democracy, and draw up a constitution? If that was not political I’d like to know what is. Global Climate Change IS a highly charged topic. There are a lot of folks out there who become enraged when the topic is even discussed casually. To discuss that topic seriously may lead to an Egyptian style revolution!

    Man-made global warming is a scam. There IS no “science” behind it.

    I’d heard of the cold summer of 1816, but I didn’t know about the far-reaching effects of it, or just how far they went.
    I actually learned a little something from this strip today.

    I’ve heard of raining cats and dogs, but never incessants.

    This led to Mary Shelly writing Frankenstein.

    I very seldom comment on strips, but I’d like to compliment you folks on the artwork today. Very nicely done. Very nice light-and-shading.

    Good Morning Benders and readers of Alley Oop. I had read of some areas in 1816 having a spring with the snow melting, but summer never coming so still having cold
    wind and rains. I hadn’t read about the snow falling in the summer. I am wondering if John Wooley wants Doc
    to do a timetrip to Switzerland to get something that was
    lost in the summer of 1816.
