Earth Day

Yesterday was “Earth Day”. It was the day when all of us were supposed to suddenly have turned into ‘super eco friendly citizens’.
…And the next day go on with business as usual?
You see, that’s why I personally don’t like these “Earth Day”, “Mother’s Day”, “Father’s Day”, and so forth. Because we turn, once a year, into these apparently very concerned citizens about our planet, our parents, pets, whotever, and the next day it’s probably business as usual for the most of us. That’s not how things work. That’s not how we are ever going to make changes in our world and society, by playing a role (kind of like an actor) and the next day or rest of the year, go on with the same old habits. It reminds me a bit , actually very much, of the Catholic concept of Indulgence.

That’s not how we’re really going to start raising awareness of important issues. There must be a continuity. A constant continuity, which by the way and redundant to say, doesn’t have to be exhausting. It’s all about how we think and act and for that we need a mental shift. It’s like cleaning a room; instead of piling up dirty or broken items and wait for that “big cleaning day”, we can always mend or clean a bit every day.

  1. In-depth studies, carried out over the last 45 seconds, confirm there is a direct link between the climate and politics.

    Both climate and politics change over time !! A fact confirmed in the afore mentioned in-depth study.

    “Man” is the main cause of all political change, therefore “Man” is the main cause of climate change.

    The climate is seen as a problem if a particular political party is in power, whereas there is no problem at all to be see with the climate if the opposite party is at the helm.

    So, the simplest way to solve any climate problems is to keep that party “who see no problems”, in power.

    Not only will this save the Earth from certain destruction, it will save a lot of money in the national budget as there’ll be no need for climate science committees, reports, analysis, action etc.

    Prior to the 45 second in-depth study, a cartoon was created, which may, or may not, conflict with the theme of the above summary.

    That climate change cartoon is here . . . . . . . .

  2. I do enjoy your cartoons, Mick, but I wasn’t really talking about Climate Change. Nevertheless, thank you.
