Laughing at Climate Change?

The Guardian online today published 19 cartoons on the subject of "climate change" from all around the world.

Whilst some might say "climate change is no laughing matter" I am tended to agree with them after looking at these 19 cartoons. Some are clearly better (cleverer) than others and the standard is impressive. A second viewing is recommended.

The judge of the competition described the entries as ""bitingly satirical, outrageously funny or exceedingly bitter, and even fatalistic".

This quote does have the effect of raising ones expectations perhaps a tad high.
