    Not complete chaos – at least they are all going in the same direction.

    And we all know what happened to the Hindenburg. A Band-Aid may not help.

    Nice art work with the eyes. Very expressive.

    Does anyone know if axle grease was ever actually used as a hair treatment or is it an urban myth. Axel grease was used for wagons – many of them had a bucket of grease hanging from the rear axle and it had to be applied regularly.

    I didn’t know this but outside the U.S. ‘Waffling’ means meaningless speech. (Thanks Wikipedia.) Inside the U.S. it usually refers to a politicians tendency to change positions without conviction.

    Tatulli sure likes playing with that fourth wall.

    Toles is showing a very famous graph of carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere from the late 50’s to today as measured in Hawaii.(http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Mauna_Loa_Carbon_Dioxide.png). The level peaks every Spring because during the winter plant photosynthesis has been suppressed. Then in May the levels start to drop as photosynthesis (in the northern hemisphere) kicks in. But every year the CO2 levels edge higher and higher as humans dump more CO2 into the atmosphere than photosynthesis can remove. Since CO2 is one of the primary ‘greenhouse gasses’ that traps the sun’s energy in the form of heat anyone with half a brain will conclude that the “greenhouse effect” should be increasing, which all the data confirms that it is.

    Interestingly, the greenhouse effect is what makes life on this planet possible. Without it the Earth would be frozen. The problem is that such huge quantities of CO2 are being dumped into the atmosphere in such a very short time (by historical/geological standards – see the graph) that the resulting increase in temperature is likely to occur faster than we can comfortably adjust to it (think droughts, flooded cities, huge financial cost, etc.). We won’t go extinct but many species will. And we will certainly suffer tremendous social, cultural and financial upheaval.

    Climate deniers are a peculiar bunch that can probably be divided into two groups. First, there are those who through willful ignorance or cognitive blindness are simply unable to grasp the meaning of graphs such as the one Toles has replicated here. Then there are the much scarier group who understand perfectly well that what the scientists are saying is valid but for short-term financial gain are committed to sabotaging any attempts to fix the problem. I suspect that this later group includes many of our politicians who exploit the gullibility of the first group in order to keep their jobs.

    I saw that one coming.

    I have the same problem, but, with commas.

    Good one. My first thought was, where did he get a ’57 chevy.
