We are all boiling frogs…

Cartoons from my regular strip in New Internationalist Magazine. We are all boiling frogs.   Image description: two frogs in a pan of water on a gas ring. First frog exclaims, in anguish, “Melting ice! Record-breaking temperatures! Unexpected flooding! We should be worried about climate change RIGHT NOW!!!”.
