Another Crack at Climate Change Humour

Finding humour in the climate change crisis isn't easy, but nor is it impossible. I've tried once before to look at the lighter side of this whole schmozz. Let's give it another try, shall we (even if all we end up with is gallows humour)?

Okay, this one's cute for sure!
Look what happens when we cut down too many trees. Global warming is one thing, but see below and look at what might happen if we continue to clear our forests! We have to stop cutting down trees! This is getting serious! 

Hey, who knew Thoreau was so wry?
"If a man walks in the woods for love of them half of each day, he is in danger of being regarded as a loafer. But if he spends his days as a speculator, shearing off those woods and making the earth bald before her time, he is deemed an industrious and enterprising citizen." Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) from Walden, 1854

Stephanie McMillan's Code Green rocks at getting an environmental message across with some humour:
