Or listed the name of the comic or the name of the cartoonist. I hear creators like getting credit for their stuff. I notice that on the page you do link to, the comic itself is a link to the creator’s web page, http://xkcd.com/386/ Joe says: July 13, 2008 at 8:43 pm Always my intent to put the link in from the cartoon itself. Rushed myself. Andy Bauer says: July 13, 2008 at 10:24 pm Ha! When my wife went on a trip, I had my daughter take a picture of me at the computer – from the back. I stuck that romantic image in her socks to keep her company… Jon says: July 13, 2008 at 11:06 pm Joe, Shouldn’t that hat tip read “RealClimate”? I lurve xkcd. [Wow! I really did rush this post.] paulm says: July 14, 2008 at 3:58 am The History of Climate Change according to those who don’t believe in AGW: 1st decade – Its getting warm – great for crops and vacation. 2nd decade – El Nina, its snowing outside – there’s no such thing as global warming. 3rd decade – Warmer year than average – maybe global warming? 4th decade – Mt Shasta glacier is expanding, its raining and cold out side – absolutely no global warming. 5th decade – Warmer than usual – maybe global warming, not sure? probably not, because… blah blah blah. Mean while: Ice sheet as large as xxx are breaking off Antarctica; The Arctic ice cap is disappearing; California is burning; Coral reefs are dying; Sea level is steadily rising over the last 100yrs; Majority of world glaciers are receding/dissapearing; Perma-Frost is melting in Alaska swallowing houses; What could be the cause of all this? Maybe, just maybe, the average global temperature is going up and reeking havoc on our environment? mmm Not sure…lets wait a few more decades, its been colder than average for the last few years. 20yrs or so later: Most of ice is completely gone. We are in dire straits. Sucks, I guess AGW was occurring – We better find a new planet to live on. Oh oh, we’ve run out of Oil!
