I thoroughly enjoyed all the helpful comments on both your blogs about Kev's  4 legged climate table. I have tried to put a few of them in... the result was of course entirely predicted by my own highly sophisticated computerised climate cartoon you can see.

May I be the first to congratulate you. Truly wonderful.

Lovely, but that Poley Bear at the bottom looks thoroughly pi##ed off.

Hmm, where's the 10:10 red "no pressure" button?

Dec 10, 2010 at 5:40 PM | Unregistered CommenterPatrick M.


Any chance Monckton could be wearing that on a nice warm fleece out in Cancun?

I really liked the stirrer stick.

The polar bear stepped on it and set off the explosion. What you see is the result.

What's that phrase? Rolling about on the floor laughing. Or something like that. I may not be quite right, but I sure am very amused! ISAVA! ISAVA! Thanks Josh, and Bish.

Over on the Guardian, the timbleweed is blowing through their Cancún climate change summit: Final day live blog

Running all day with around 60 comments so far. Carrington and Randerson are so desperate they are even posting themselves trying to pick on "deniers".

They really are true-believers.

This cartoon will hurt.

Dec 10, 2010 at 7:14 PM | Unregistered CommentersHx

Beautiful - the plodding polar bear is sooooo cute.

Dec 10, 2010 at 7:19 PM | Unregistered CommenterZT

Love it! - FOI in the bin indeed! Just think what that could have done if they'd just folded it neatly and stuck it under the wobbly leg.... who'd a thunk a little transparency could have helped the whole thing survive?! or, maybe not ....:-)

We really should have a Cancun postmortem (a pun) tomorrow.

Dec 10, 2010 at 7:56 PM | Unregistered CommenterDon Pablo de la Sierra

I like it.. probably too late to add 'CCX Value CO2' in a buy one, get one free deal. But off to the pub to temporarily sequester some CO2, then may play on the Grauniad.

I like the climate models being depicted as a staircase that only goes upwards, presumably whatever the inconvenient data says.

Two-Word Review:

Well Done! :)

LMFAO. Another bullseye from Josh. Congrats.

Dec 10, 2010 at 9:18 PM | Unregistered CommenterFarleyR

Tremendous! Did my little Escher suggestion get through then, or was this coincidence?

You should do a Zedbed cartoon.

Dec 10, 2010 at 9:46 PM | Unregistered CommenterShub

Well done Josh! I like the chicken little climate alarm model, myself. Someone should actually make a few of those!

Dec 10, 2010 at 10:13 PM | Unregistered CommenterAlex Cull

Hilarious. Well Done.

I must say the polar bear in the second bit of the new cartoon looks a bit like Lord Kitchener in the WW1 poster.

Dec 10, 2010 at 11:11 PM | Unregistered Commentercosmic

All these arrows remind me of the Beano and Dennis the Menace.

Josh's finest hour.

Having browsed (yawn) through the new Science Museum 'Climate Change' gallery,

I can confidently state that if Josh's exhibit were to be installed as a centrepiece, visitor satisfaction would be greatly enhanced.

I quite agree. Since ZBD can't even get (his/her) name correct -- it should be Zed's Dead Baby -- a dyslectic troll wearing tattered motorcycle leathers roaring through the ice-covered streets of Truro on a battered Harley Davidson comes to mind. Somehow, I see (him/her) waving a hockey stick overhead. I leave the rest to other imaginations, which I am sure are more fertile than mine.

Perhaps a "design-a-cartoon" thread could be organized much like the one that spontaneously grew out of Josh 59. First question is ZBD male or female? Opinion is quite mixed. We should take a poll.

Dec 11, 2010 at 12:00 AM | Unregistered CommenterDon Pablo de la Sierra

I mean "ZDB" -- sorry, lost my new glasses again. Hopefully they will turn up. They usually do.

Re Pharos

I can confidently state that if Josh's exhibit were to be installed as a centrepiece, visitor satisfaction would be greatly enhanced.

I can confidently state that most museum's security systems are aimed at preventing removal of exhibits rather than additions. If any staff from the Fitzwilliam are reading, I apologise, but we thought it was funny at the time. May have to go recce this one and see how easy it'd be to slip in a framed copy.

Dec 11, 2010 at 12:10 AM | Unregistered CommenterAtomic Hairdryer

Zed's a she (let us say, for now). A tights wearing lady troll swinging a hockey stick overhead,...

Dec 11, 2010 at 1:42 AM | Unregistered CommenterShub

Relevant, perhaps, or not.
But I've just finished listening, on BBC7, about the struggle to get the "Experts", the sighted ones, to accept Braille as better for the target audience.
Yes, it took the adolescent curiosity and eventual passion of the teenager Louis Braille, to eshew the consensus of the cognosenti, but, in the end, it was the raw courage of others that made his system happen.
Raw courage is a rare commodity, it seems, these days!

There's none so blind as those who cannot see!

Dec 11, 2010 at 3:14 AM | Unregistered CommenterRoyFOMR

Your best yet. (intended as high praise indeed).

Dec 11, 2010 at 9:08 AM | Unregistered CommenterDisputin

Omigawd - this is absolutely the best evah!

Couldn't stop laughing - love the poley bear, the deathwatch beetle, the Escherisation, the bristleconepine ...

It is fab - u - lous, a - ma - zing, just perfect!

Dec 11, 2010 at 12:04 PM | Unregistered CommenterViv Evans

A tights wearing lady troll swinging a hockey stick overhead,...

With one of those god-awful hats will large fake flowers sticking out of it.

Dec 11, 2010 at 2:38 PM | Unregistered CommenterDon Pablo de la Sierra

Cartoon for the year 2010!!!

Dec 11, 2010 at 11:13 PM | Unregistered Commenteropastun

,,, and meanwhile, the poles melt.
You're an easily led idiot, Josh.

Dec 11, 2010 at 11:13 PM | Unregistered CommenterBishop Phil

Melting poles? Where? I know a few hot Poles, but I suspect that's not what your thinking of Bishop Phil. GISS does seem to have dug up some more record heat from the North Pole in a desperate attempt to teach Santa to water ski though. Shame their sensors are faulty, and fear of a melting North Pole is something people have been worrying about for at least a couple of hundred years.

Dec 11, 2010 at 11:34 PM | Unregistered CommenterAtomic Hairdryer

Josh, this is absolutely brilliant ... I don't know how you will ever top this one! And I see that we may now purchase souvenir (and/or stocking stuffer) facsimiles to share with our friends.

Dec 12, 2010 at 11:18 AM | Unregistered Commenterhro001

You'll have to look sharp Josh, they've sicked the competition onto your turf, once they develop a sense of humour, you'll be in real trouble...:)
