A book agent I know in New York is shopping a humorous Handbook for Global Warming around to publishers right now. To keep myself in good spirits, I also collect funny tidbits of humor about global warming and I made a sideblog here to collect them: I call it Goodbye Cool World.

Global warming is no joke, but that does not mean that humor should not be encouraged. Sidney Harris is joined by twenty of his cartoonist colleagues to provide somewhat more than the promised 101 cartoons about global warming (there are no page numbers - I had to count!). They are not all funny, however.

Harris, this time with a number of other cartoonists, does it again. He brings his unique combination of of incisive wit and real understanding of the science to global warming and other ecological issues. This collection differs from other Harris compendia in a few ways, though. For one, it includes contributions by Gahan Wilson and others, many quite recongizable. On the whole, though, I found Harris's to be the strongest in the collection.

Some material in the collection actually writes itself, leading to the second unusual feature of this collection. In a half-dozen cartoons, Harris just pens a loose sketch of some famous figure and lets that luminary's own bone-headed words speak for themselves, for example "We've got to ask ourselves: how much clean air do we need?" (Lee Iococca) and "It has never been proven that air toxics are hazardous to people" (Tom Delay). You can't make that stuff up; no one would believe it.

Issues like these are so important the we must bring all of our resources to bear on them, and humor is that most human of resources.

This is a charming collection of black-and-white rib-tickling cartoons spoofing various global warming issues. As indicated in the title, the book contains 101 cartoons, a few occupying more than one page. Of those 101 cartoons, 51 are by Sidney Harris. As in all cartoon collections, and depending on the reader's mindset, some cartoons will likely be hilarious, some may be more difficult to grasp, while others, well.... Some of these cartoons had me rolling on the floor - well, almost. But the beauty of Sidney Harris's work is that his cartoons are simple, to the point and, over time, can be reviewed over and over again, inducing just about as much pleasure as the first viewing. The other cartoonists who contributed to this collection have their own different styles, but they share a similar insight as Mr. Harris. Anyone who's had the pleasure of perusing Sidney Harris's cartoons will not be disappointed in this collection, even if he's only produced half of them.
