With the Climate March coming up, I felt compelled to write this Dustinland comic, since it’s the one issue I care most about. After a long time trying to figure out what I could do to convince people to care, I realized I can’t convince anyone, since I’ve tried many times before, and still no one seems to give a shit. So I made a comic about that.

Okay, so this comic is not nearly as good as I wanted it to be, and here’s why: I have be planning this thing for months and months, but I have never had the time to fully devote to it. If I could, I would have made this comic a complete epic, way longer, more conceptual, better drawn. But I can’t because I’m a dad with a job. However, this has been weighing on me, and after Obama’s speech, I figured now, in the middle of the steamy hot summer, it would be the right time to launch into this tirade on global warming.
Why all the cursing? Well, I don’t know how else to get people to pay attention to this issue. It seemed to work for that parody kids book, “Go The Fuck To Sleep,” so why not try a comic called “Wake The Fuck Up.” Hey, there’s even that Facebook group, Give A Shit About Nature. Things are getting so dire, there’s no more time to pussyfoot around the issues, so here it is. Care. Give a shit. Or we’re fucked.
I won’t reiterate any of the points I made in the comic here, but I will say that if you care about global warming and the future of mankind—and you and your loved ones—go to 350.org. It’s probably the best climate change movement out there right now. I’ve been to their events and they are amazing and inspiring and only getting better. Yes, even their founder, Bill McKibben, admits we are probably doomed, but hey, you gotta fight the fight, because giving up is just pathetic. Fucking pathetic.
