Environment cartoon – floods caused by climate change

global warming flooding cartoon

Flooding caused by global warming

Following the recent flooding on the Somerset Levels (February 2014), the government is blaming the Environment Agency for lack of foresight. However, it’s not just the Environment Agency who may be blamed for not seeing what was in store. Governments refuse to take action on global warming, and populations in general refuse to confront the possibility of climate change

A comment on postponing taking action about global warming, using the saying “We’ll cross that bridge when we get to it”. Unfortunately, due to flooding, the bridge can’t be crossed.
From my collection of cartoons about global warming, climate change, floods, anthropogenic weather

Environment cartoon. Global warming graph in the form of Hokusai’s Great Wave

Global warming graph cartoon Hokusai

Global warming cartoon
Global warming graph in the form of Hokusai’s Great Wave

This climate change cartoon uses Hokusai’s Great Wave to illustrate the effects of global warming – particularly the effects on the change in the sea level and the weather

The Great Wave by Hokusai is frequently appropriated by cartoonists, often to represent disasters.
In this cartoon Hokusai’s wave shows the ultimate effects of global warming. The gradual, almost unnoticed, increase in the effects of climate change slowly accumulate, with ultimate devastating effect. The effects are only taken seriously too late, by which time the effects cause environmental disaster (not necessarily only flooding or tsunamis, which here are actually metaphors for wider consequences)
