On avoiding eco-scare stories

From The Cartoons of Marc Robertson.
Marc creates strips about ecological issues, particularly climate change. The humour is frequently quite dark, but even more often on the money. Ern is the rich, young and cheery capitalist generally in denial and Frank is the grouchy old environmentalist who usually represents the authorial voice, though also comes in for occasional ribbing himself.
