Excellent strip today. It will elicit a shipload of damning comments full of something that is spelled almost like ship. I shall listen to the howls of the doomed Lefties without attempts at enlightening them, as their ears and minds are too filled with hate to allow room for anything else.
This has also been a witty, fun strip. ’sad to see Berkeley pick blatantly pick sides and opt into the political s—t fight.
I sincerely wish her well, and success. And I hope her 15 Minutes of Fame benefit the earth.
We don’t disagree. In your first four phrases/sentences you reiterated what I said: we should mitigate our damage if we can. But, the comparison to Nader does apply – they are both pop stars of their respective moments, and both at least partially wrong in their pronouncements. Finally, of course having cleaner air and water in 15 years won’t be harmful, to the earth at least, but donning a sandwich board touting “The End Is Near!” is not called for.
“leaned left”, yes. But flat out signed up with one dogmatic faction over another, no.

1) Humans have had / are having an effect on the earth’s climate; it would be in our interest , and the earth’s, for us to mitigate our negative impact. 2) The earth’s climate has never been static; it’s constantly changing. We can’t make time and climate stand still. [3) Ms Thunberg gets to be the Ralph Nader of this era. Congrats, kid, but bear in mind that Ralph’s condemnation of the Corvair (1965) was eventually proven wrong (1972) — but by that time the damage had been done and Corvair sales had plummeted. Sigh. ] 4) We should come back in 15 years to see how she’s spent what she was convinced were going to be the last 12 years of earth….
Our two very different political realities (world views, if you insist) are : 1)Trump is a racist, misogynist, lying fascist criminal who colluded with foreign powers to steal the 2016 election and needs to be impeached, or: 2) Trump is not a racist, misogynist, lying fascist criminal, he is a bold, brash, and abrasive right of center populist who is so hated by the Left that they’ve been scrambling to find any excuse to remove him from office since election day. The country is pretty evenly divided between these two belief systems. Take your pick, but I notice that the Dems are already preparing their enraged victim scenarios to explain how their impeachment effort failed.
That’s funny, those exact words were in a receipt letter one of my aunts got from a Czechoslovakian sperm bank back in ’72…
Heck, just give me a penny for every time any politician, either party, fails to answer a question fully and truthfully. I’d retire and live in luxury.
