Sorry kiddos, global warming is real and humans are to blame. Scientists overwhelmingly agree on this. But politics have gotten in the way of communicating that fact to the American public. Now researchers are turning to desperate measures to get the message out: cartoons.
Actually, cartoons are a great idea. They are fun and concise. Since Sunday, caricatures of 97 scientists with short quotes about human-driven global warming have been popping up on SkepticalScience.com. The social-media stunt started on Sept. 7 and will last 97 hours, all to emphasize the fact that 97 percent of climate scientists agree on global warming. That’s far above the 55 percent of scientists that Americans think agree on global warming, according to some polls, reports The Guardian.
