Tomorrow Is Yesterday

This week’s Dustinland comic was written in response to Trump’s pull out from the Paris Climate Agreement, but I did it in a way that would hopefully appeal to people who don’t already agree with me. That’s why you notice, no mention of climate change, but rather a focus on a few things we can all agree on: freedom, fiscal independence, and future-facing technology. Curious to see if I get any positive responses from the other side or if it will just be the same old zombie Fox News “coal jarbs and hoax” blah blah blah we’re all used to hearing.

    A couple of comments:

    –You can sell electricity from solar energy for a profit unless you’re unlucky enough to live in Oklahoma or some other state whose legislature is completely in the pocket of the fossil fuel companies. There, you would be charged money for adding electricity to the grid. No lie.
    –Germany gets 85 percent of its electric power from renewable sources. Eighty-five percent. Of this, close to 7 percent is solar.
    –The spaceships in your last panel are indeed part of our future. They’ll be needed to carry a lucky few humans away from the uninhabitable Earth. And when that happens, you can bet that priority boarding will be given to the descendants of the rightwing politicians, fossil-fuel execs, etc. who are now so loudly denying the existence of man-made climate change. (If not to those politicians and execs themselves, depending on how fast it happens.)

  2. Agree on all points, sadly. And Florida is a major state that tries to screw people out of solar. Sad times, man.
