Oh, never mind about the title.
I see Ann Dorfman had noted it in her
message. Sorry for letting my inattention bother you all.
Does anyone know what title the artist gave
to the cartoon? It would be shown on the table of contents for that issue
Anne McLaughlin, Portland OR
I looked at this cover
and wondered what the meaning was, and I don't think it says anything very
positive about recycling. It is called "A Clear Conscience" by Bruce McCall. For
those who haven't seen it, it is a painting of a guy shipwrecked on a tiny
tropical island about 25' across with a single palm tree and a dozen or so
recycling and hazardous waste containers of various types.
I think the message the
artist is trying to convey is that people FEEL they are doing their part to
help global warming when they do little things like recycle, but to change the
course of global warming people are going to need to do a lot more than
that. Not only is recycling not the answer, but the artist is saying it lulls
people into a dangerous sense of complaisancy.
