Global Warming version 1

This is the cartoon that started it all. I made this as an illustration for an article on global warming that appeared in the magazine I edit Reformed Perspective. The author of the article, Dr. James Wanliss, had written a book about environmentalism, Resisting the Green Dragon, that was going to be featured on the Glenn Beck TV show. He wanted my cartoon so he could post it, along with his article, on his own website, in anticipation of some traffic there from Glenn Beck viewers.

I gave him the comic, but first put a label on it - www.ReallyGoodComics.com - with the thought that if he got a pile of hits, maybe some of them would want to see the site he got his comic from. It was a bit of a long shot, admittedly, but I always wanted to do a comic blog anyway, so it seemed a good reason to start. In the end I think I got no traffic from the six degrees of separation connection to the Glenn Beck show. 

But I did end up with a comic blog!
