Cool climate cartoonist Kate Evans tells MCFly about her new project, which takes a critical look at Carbon Trading.
The snappily titled Funny Weather: Everything you Didn’t Want to Know about Climate Change but Probably Should Find Out was written in response to impending environmental catastrophe. I hope it can amuse, and inform people about climate change, and empower them to think creatively about social change. It’s entirely in comic format, and what I like about comics is the fact that people don’t realise that they’re reading about science and social policy. And if you make someone laugh, then you’re halfway to changing their mind.
I hope “ordinary people” put Funny Weather in their toilets, so they read it often. I’d also like it in the toilets in the House of Commons, the House of Lords, and the United Nations Headquarters.
I’m currently writing a book on pregnancy and birth, which is only going to contribute to the overpopulation problem. After that I’d like to get my teeth into financial reform. You can download the free comic The Carbon Supermarket from my website cartoonkate.co.uk if you want to know more about the international response to climate change.
