Cartoon showing an arched bridge with a gold keystone. The gold keystone is Climate, which supports the other blocks that make up the arch: Food, Health, Jobs, Homes, Affordability, Safety, and Freedom. The gold Climate keystone is being weakened by a crane seizing a chunk of it. A group of people stands on the bridge looking on in dismay. One says, “We should do something!” Another responds, “More paper straws?” The digger that is changing the climate interjects, “The climate has always changed.” Artist Chris Slane @SlaneCartoons, License CC BY-SA 4.0.

Cartoon about how many degrees of warming we choose to allow from fossil fuels and other sources of greenhouse gases. A massive billboard advertises three earths. The first earth, labelled “Stable Climate”, is billed as “proven to work for 10,000 years”, but is “sold out by fossil fuels”. The second earth, labelled “Liveable Earth”, requires us to “clean up energy, reduce waste, protect nature”, and we need to “act now, offer closes soon”. The third earth, labelled “Hell Knows!”, tempts us to “pay later, how bad could it be?” In front of the billboard, a man and a girl stand in front of the two earths that we can still choose between. The girl points enthusiastically to a “Liveable Earth”. The man seems undecided as he looks towards a future of “Hell Knows!” His briefcase says “Business as Usual”.
