Our resident cartoonist Josh has his finger, er, brush, on the pulse of today’s reality in this new cartoon.
In a nutshell, there is no “climate crisis”. There is a crisis of lack of affordable essential petroleum fuels caused by the fools who believe we are in a “climate crisis.”

Why the umbrellas in those queer rainbow hues?
Problems come from virtue signalling, if that is what is meant.

If you allow people to tell you a rainbow has only their special meaning you have lost.
Well, with all due respect, THIS is representative of the way the association of the rainbow with the LGBTQWERTY+FJB movement is being blasted into the heads of kids everywhere. Pretty hard to overcome that peer pressure and reestablish the original association when the BIBLE, the source of the original association, is outlawed or blocked from being taught any more.
They’ve done the same thing with the word “gay”.
It used to mean something along the lines of happy, festive, fun loving. In the original The Mummy movie, after they read the curse someone wondered what he had done to deserve such a curse. The first to die quipped, “Maybe he was too gay with the temple virgins”.
The OK sign is something they’re trying to say is a white supremist symbol is among the latest attempts to hijack twist the meaning of something innocent.
And it should be remembered that some cultural words and symbols don’t mean the carry the same implications in different parts of the world.
I have a couple of friends from different nations in Africa that don’t understand the “BLM” type race issues here in the US. (One of them said that in his country the first thing people want to know is what tribe they are from.)
I also have friends in Ireland that don’t understand why St. Patrick’s Day is such a big deal in the US.
“Why the umbrellas in those queer rainbow hues”?
It must be free advertising for Legal & General Assurance
Dude – the LGBTQ rights movement adopted the rainbow as symbolic of diversity, using all the colors of the rainbow, not to promote gay sexual practices. Diversity of opinion and science on the climate issue is exactly what’s needed today. The cartoonist appropriately chose shades of uniformity – gray – to signal the intellectual bankruptcy of the warmunists’ attempts to squelch all debate, while the multi colored umbrellas and the happy faces indicated well balanced, sensible people who are not mind-controlled by the zealots.
Well said Duane, the simplest interpretation is that a multi-colored umbrella is a device to brighten the contrast between the two frames.
But really Geoff, even if it were intentionally chosen as a nod to LGBTQ that is not the main thrust of the cartoon, it is not virtue signaling, and no one should have to censor just to ensure you do not feel offended. Just because some people take things too far with virtue signaling and false calling out does not mean the rest of us should have to over-compensate. Good grief, get some perspective.
It’s just the Arnold Palmer umbrella, and I’m sure Arnie wasn’t queer!
So does this mean the Legal and General has infringed on Arnie’s trademark?
Diversity is not what is needed in the Climate debate, TRUTH is, reinforced by the evidence that CAGW alarmism is based on a HOAX and is destructive.
We need to be UNIFIED in our position opposing the HOAX, not DIVIDED.
Although the gay pride movement appropriated the rainbow for their own purposes, the original meaning – one of hope, appears to be coming back, spurred by the pandemic. I think children started using it, not knowing what it was “supposed” to mean.
From your lips (or keyboard)……
Here in the US there seems to be a sort of a cult of “Umbrella People” on the golf courses. The umbrellas come in sizes Large, XL and Overgrown. Colors range from “multi-color outrageous” to “Crime Against Fashion”. Indeed, the more outrageous and garish the color scheme, the better they like it.
I have no idea why.
Please do not ask me why.
Blame the old Isaak.
His mom abandoned him as a toddler, maybe she didn’t want a boy, and she went to live with someone else. This totally confused little fellow, made detailed planes to go and burn down the house where she lived with her new partner.
Few years later when that apple hit his head he got splitting headache, from the incurred pain he saw all of the rainbow colours and made the absolutely first LGBT umbrella, it rained lot then it was the LIA time after all . No surprise there, he worked at what is now the very woke Cambridge Uni.
At one time multi-colour umbrellas like that were fairly popular amongst golfers
Much like golfist’s trousers?
Agreed about golfers, but those in the cartoon are wearing Welles, not golf shoes, so they might be doing something wet.
What do you think of the design of the multi-coloured flag at Sydney Uni Library, see my first comment here. I was agreeing with sentiments of Josh who ridicules rude activists, a group that includes the rainbow brigade in my view. Geoff S
Sadly, 99 out of 100 people will agree with you that the rainbow has been co-opted by the Gay Mafia. I’m disappointed that so many normally open minded commenters here attacked your simple observation and question. Maybe Josh should weigh in and clarify why he chose those colors since most umbrellas are black.
When you do a cartoon, you can choose black umbrellas.
I long for the days when the rainbow wasn’t controversial and stood for its original meaning, but a lot has changed since 1960 when Arnold Palmer chose a variation of the rainbow on an umbrella as his logo. Anyone opposed to the Gay agenda can expect to be attacked even physically if he dares to try to speak on a major college campus today….. I offer exhibit A.
The LGBTQ.*&^* movement and the Climate Change movement have common ground
Apologies.. That image was not meant to come out that large. !
Thanks Josh and Anthony for another great cartoon. It sums up the bizarre global mindset well. There is no ‘climate’ crisis…just a global ‘critical thinking’ crisis.
I blame the schools and the brainwashed masses they churn out.
No wonder most Russians believe that the Ukranians are the aggressors. Soviet schools have done well!
Ukraine is an unfortunate distraction. With worldwide inflation they want you to focus on Ukraine instead of their bad policies.
The west needs to focus on energy independence from these regimes like Russia, Iran, and now Venezuela…wth Biden?
This energy independence needs to include Nuclear with fossil fuels and AVOID intermittent energy.
So it’s a conspiracy between Biden and Putin?
Perhaps it’s all deep-fake?
The CIA controls both Biden and Putin, and the globalists control the CIA.
Strange how some people think all Government organisations are completely incompetent except the CIA which has abilities beyond the ken of Zeus.
An alternative explanation is that no-one is in change and we’re all muddling along the best we can.
Exactly the CIA are the good people.
Reminds me of a recent Babylon Bee headline, “Americans Who Cowered Under Government Oppression For 2 Years Urge Ukrainians To Die For Freedom.”
Perhaps the Babylon Bee could introduce cartoons on their site.
Americans urge Ukrainians to fight Russian invaders and make them die if they refuse to leave. Americans urge Russians who want to die for Mother Putin to die for Mother Putin.
A tale of two realities, even
“Britain must lift fracking ban” – The Sun
“Government stands firm on fracking moratorium”
Have a look at the graphs here :
European NatGas Jumps 64% As Chance Of Russian Energy Ban Ignites Mayhem
That is politics gone fracking berserk!
EU energy stupidity is the main green light for Putin to invade. And we’re seeing a replay of the attitude of sacrificing countries in the east in the process. Way to go dumbass.
To be fair, the first panel decisions are NOT stupid for those raking in money hand over fist from these misguided policies, they’re just stupid for the countries and populations who suffer under them.
“It was the best of climes, it was the worst of climes”.
You misspelled crimes.
I suspect most of the EU is feeling this way at present!?
This is what we have been saying for years.And now the roosters are coming home to roost.
The problem we have is a climate policy crisis.
