Has global warming wilted your sense of humor? Is your patience worn thinner than the ozone layer? If you're overwhelmed by the mess we call our environment, then stretch out under a tree (remember them?) with these cartoons and see if a good laugh won't sweep the cobwebs (and asbestos) from your troubled mind and help renew your commitment to making our earth a better place.
Aside from being just plain hilarious, Sidney Harris is a whiz at subtly defusing hot issues and debunking both the politically conservative and politically correct. Fans who enjoy his work in the New Yorker, Natural History, Playboy, and other popular magazines know that even toxic waste, endangered species, overpopulation, and energy conservation are no challenge for his probing wit and barbed pen.
So, let the bottom-liners, P.R. flaks, and slash-and-burn developers square off against the doomsayers, granolaheads, and tree-huggers. Sidney Harris will help them stay focused on the issues while he gives the rest of us, who ask only for an occasional breath of fresh air and glass of clean water, something to laugh aboutand hope for.
