Cartoons: ‘At least I didn’t make things awkward’

Posted on 13 March 2024 by Guest Author

This is a re-post from Yale Climate Connections by Tom Toro

Tom Toro is a cartoonist and author. He has published over 200 cartoons in The New Yorker since 2010. His cartoons appear in Playboy, the Paris Review, the New York Times, American Bystander, and elsewhere.

A cartoon with a left and a right panel. The left panel is people walking in the woods. One is thinking, "i really want to talk about cliamte change but it feels uncomfortable." In the right panel, the same people are crawling through a burning forest and the person is thinking "Well, at least I didn't make things awkward."
