From Sidney Harris, a long-time New Yorker, American Scientist, and Hippocrates magazine cartoonist, comes a hilarious and thought-provoking collection of 100 original cartoons on the earth's changing climate and environment.

Not a day goes by without word about our impending environmental doom. If it's not the polar ice caps melting at an even more alarming rate than originally thought, it's the sudden—and totally unexplained— disappearance of bees. It's enough to make even the most ardent of anti-environmentalists throw their arms up in despair. So, what are we supposed to do between now and when lower Manhattan is13-feet below sea level? Well, in 100 Funny Things About Global Warming, acclaimed cartoonist Sidney Harris suggests looking at the sunnier-side of global warming. In collaboration with an assortment of his New Yorker colleagues, Harris makes light of hot-button environmental issues, like unreliable Hybrid cars, pie-in-the-sky alternative energy sources, head-in-the-sand politicians, and the existential crisis of our own biodegradable nature. Provocative, timely, and endlessly funny, 100 Funny Things About Global Warming is an unexpected look at today's inconvenient truths by this generation's most celebrated cartoonists.
