Funny Weather by Kate Evans
Everything you didn’t want to know about climate change but probably should find out.
When a book on climate change, consisting mainly of cartoons, is praised by George Monbiot for the power of its message and its author lauded by Steve Bell as “one of the most original talents in comics”, it must have something going for it.
Do you want to understand the complexities of the ecological debate? Do you want to have a good belly laugh, despite the serious danger we face? OK. You couldn’t do better than to read, not to say devour, this book.
The pros and cons of the debate are presented in readable – and pictorial – form that ‘make the medicine go down in a most delightful way’. Nonetheless, medicine it is. And this full dose of it will amuse whilst it enlightens, encourage and enable you to play your part in the urgent task of saving the planet.
“A graphic guide to global warming”, says The Guardian. “Brilliant, funny and shocking”, says George Monbiot. The New Internationalist advises you to “read it, give it away and get on with it. “Essential reading”, say The Big Issue.
And you can borrow it from the BPEC library. Need I say more?
