    “Overseer of North American?” Well, I for one must have died in the conflict leading up to that….

    Sad. Sad, but, sadder still: likely.

    Sitting, wasting oxygen.

    Burn 5,000 times all the carbon that has ever been burned and reduce oxygen in the atmosphere by one percent, roughly. We don’t got that much carbon.

    (I know that was not the point, but THAT part of the sky isn’t falling.)

    I like the ways that this gets across several points while also relating to multiple recent news stories.

    Trump, of course, incorrectly announced that the U.S. has the least pollution in the world which is nowhere near accurate.

    https://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2018/aug/23/donald-trump/united-states-not-cleanest-country/

    That happened about the time that he rolled back provisions to protect air quality including automotive improvements that the auto industry itself likes (partly because the now destroyed controls are more in line with what is needed for products that can also be sold in the industrialized world and in the up and coming parts of the third world, instead of more polluting standards suited better to the demands within the stuck third world segments and in nations sinking toward those). Some auto makers will move or move large sections of their companies, others will ignore the changes, but some might feel pressured to reduce controls on at least some models due to demands from people who do not think ahead.

    There were recent pieces on Finland’s innovative approach to homelessness (with shelter being another essential).

    Ditto ones on crumbling essential infrastructure including major water mains.

    Meanwhile, there has been a lot recently on approaches and proposals for hopefully making the essential of health care more affordable in the U.S.

    For your reading pleasure I did a quick and dirty search as an apology gift for being a tad slow today:

    The Permian extinctions:

    https://www.nationalgeographic.com/science/prehistoric-world/permian-extinction/

    (In addition to the things I mentioned in my most recent reply to David’s post note the acid rain problem. Like I wrote there, I am very slow on the uptake today due to a pollen allergy headache blaring. Sorry.)

    Plants and climate change (i.e. global warming which means that on average the planet is warming, NOT that all areas are warming since altered air and water currents will cool some places):

    Please change your strip’s name to Delusionville.

    Then go look up global cooling from the 70’s and then all the failed global warming predictions from the last 25 years.

    That’s when C-Dog came in and changed the channel to Gilligan’s Island re-runs.

    Well, I enjoyed this strip, as always, but it’s a tad depressing. Because it’s totally believable.

    The only ones allowed to use Oxygen without a tax are the corporations!

    Personally, I suspect that, by the year 2019, almost everyone will have mounted LED Grow Lights on every ceiling in their apartments to grow as many plats as possible to create Oxygen.

    And maybe grow a few Tomatoes & Potatoes to Eat, also.

    There will be a race to find the best vegetables for an optimum mix of Oxygen Production and Food Production.

    Old Clyde would do the right thing and switch to “Gilligan’s Island” reruns.
