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)
