U.N. Climate Talks 2030

With another round of U.N. climate talks wrapping up Doha, Qatar, no progress was made save for an extension of the ineffective Kyoto Protocol. Of course, not much was on the table to begin with. Rich nations that cause the vast majority of carbon emissions don’t want to significantly cut them or compensate poor nations affected by rising sea levels and extreme weather. We’re passing the point where we can prevent a permanent rise in temperatures. It’s now a question of how bad it’s going to be.

  1. Congratulation Matt! You did it again: an excellent cartoon. Thanks!

    “so true”? How exactly in 17 years will there be no land? I don’t get it. Isn’t this another version of ‘polar bears on ice flows’? It’s just not so. Polar bear populations have increased otherwise the internet would be lousy w/ pics of drowned beached polar bears. Doesn’t there need to be a kernel of truth in humor? And before you collectively threaten to kill my Mother know that MB is easily in my top 5 cartoonists working today so this is non-political just trying to find some common ground. -ML

    I’m not saying there “won’t be land” in 2030, Mike. But coastlines will rise and the UN climate talks haven’t done much. You exaggerate things in your comics, if memory serves.

    Mr. Lester,

    You are a fine cartoonist, but I’m confused by your comment. Are you really basing your opinion on polar-bear population numbers solely on a lack of Internet photos? And how would polar bear carcasses wash up on beaches to be photographed, instead of, say, sinking in the icy, remote waters of the North Pole?

    Mr. Lester,

    You are not a fine cartoonist. Also I am a polar bear.

    Lol how did I get on the internet?
