Readers may recall that I and some other climate skeptics were portrayed in a parody of AMC’s “MAD MEN” last week by activist artist Steve Brodner, who apparently can’t handle comments about his artwork on his blog, since he didn’t allow my comment asking for a full sized poster, nor comments from others that we know were submitted.
Josh and I immediately started on a rebuttal parody, one that is also in a “smoke filled back room”, but the smoke isn’t tobacco smoke. We think our parody is also better researched than Mr. Brodner’s who seems to have only popular memes without references, and also failed to note that none of the people in that parody of his smoke cigarettes. Though, I do drink coffee.
Enjoy this new version:
Be sure to leave a tip for Josh, as he worked over the weekend to finish this up.
