  1. Global Warming caused the Jupiter 2 to crash into a snow bank, and Professor Robinson doesn’t look too happy about it.

    1. You’re nuts, talking like that. Clearly, that’s Dr. Smith.

  2. Not ROFL but 🙂

    Good Morning reason!

    Hi FoE!

  3. Heh heh, good one.

  4. The ‘guin is a nice touch.

    1. How do you know his name is Guinevere?

  5. Epic fail.

    The joke’s entirely on us, because now we cannot laugh at global warming alarmists for claiming that a hot day in summer is evidence for anthropogenic global warming.

    The worst thing is that Reason is paying Payne money for destroying their reputation. Stop it!

    1. Hey, screw you, guy who said exactly the same thing as me one minute before me!

      1. Irritating, isn’t that?

  6. This is stupid. I know that it’s a cartoon and that the artist is just being cheeky, but there are idiots who say this sort of thing with a straight face and thereby discredit skepticism of climate change as a whole.

    1. Only among fellow fools.

    2. Idiots discredit nothing.

      1. Same but reverse fallacy as the appeal to authority.

        1. Or, more directly, Niven’s Law #16:

          There is no cause so right that one cannot find a fool following it.

  7. The ‘guin is a nice touch.

    a) It’s spelled gwine
    b) That’s racist
    c) You’re borrowing money from a bird?
    d) What ‘guin?

  8. If we can’t use anecdotal evidence to prove/disprove manmade Global Warming Climate Change, then all we’re left with to use are faulty computer models, and who wants to draw a cartoon about that?

    1. XKCD.com for example.

      And it would be funnier than any Friday Funny, evar. It appears that the Reason staff thinks their readers are stupid, which is why they resort to this payneful teletubby humor.

      1. They just can’t afford funnier cartoonists (all that’s keeping newsprint alive; maybe).

        1. That was just depressing.

  9. that’s not a guin!? It’s Al Gore!

  10. Where is all the love for Congress not being able to do anything right now? Come on, Payne.

  11. Is there a more narcissistic city in the nation than DC?

    1. Uh, New Orleans?

      1. True, but they have a professional bloodsucking sports team.

      2. Ever been to Indianapolis? It doesn’t even want to look at itself in the mirror.

      3. NorLeans!

        Does the “corpsmen,” “sword,” and “island” apply here?

  12. Yo, fuck this cartoon.

  13. This cartoon made a website devoted to the history of cartoons in this vein. Since it only goes back a year it has only found fifty or so examples, but these things have been around forever. Editorial cartooning requires a certain pride in recycling old jokes as if they were devilishly new ones. The first “snow cancels global warming meeting omglol” cartoon appeared in the caves of Lascaux.

      Best line so far this morning.

  14. I haz marker and third grade sense of humor. I can be cartoonist?

  15. “Reason”?

    1. Damn you, dswift! It’s too early to start drinking.

  16. I want to see Barney Frank & Co (in their snowsuits, mittens and Elmer Fudd hats) on the mall building a giant snowmanperson.

    ps- Could somebody please explain “lost productivity” in a Congressional context? Because I’m honestly unable to grasp such an absurdity.

    1. “Reports of Theft Down Across Nation: Experts Baffled.”

  17. Wow, that was pretty funny dude. Well done.

  18. This cartoon is unpatriotic!

  19. This cartoon should be in the NYT, satiring those people making this argument. Climate change, man-made or not, does not mean everywhere on Earth gets a little hotter. This cartoon makes climate change skeptics look dumb. I approve.

    1. Thing is, I remember a few winters ago when every Canadian news station was quite seriously saying that it was the “end of winters”
      and “snow was a thing of the past” due to our abnormally warm winter that year

  20. This cartoon is unrealistic. I mean, seriously, for the snow to get that high, it would have to be about 250 feet high.

    Sheesh!

    Plus, all that white snow is racist.

    1. double posts suck.

  22. Heard that we’re spending about 150 million dollars a day for Washington not to work.

    I think we’re getting our money’s worth.

    1. +2

  23. In hopes of doubling Payne’s IQ, here in a nutshell is what is happening with the weird US weather:
    Extra moisture from the Pacific, due to El Ni?o, is meeting up with the cold end of the Arctic Oscillation. Thus it snows more this winter in the East and South. This concurrence likely has nothing to do with climate change.

    1. Yo soy El Ni?o. For those of you who don’t Habla Espa?ol, El Ni?o is Spanish for…The Ni?o.

  24. This is absurd. Might want to remember the name of your website.

  25. My only point is that if you take the Bible straight, as I’m sure many of Reasons readers do, you will see a lot of the Old Testament stuff as absolutely insane. Even some cursory knowledge of Hebrew and doing some mathematics and logic will tell you that you really won’t get the full deal by just doing regular skill english reading for those books. In other words, there’s more to the books of the Bible than most will ever grasp. I’m not concerned that Mr. Crumb will go to hell or anything crazy like that! It’s just that he, like many types of religionists, seems to take it literally, take it straight…the Bible’s books were not written by straight laced divinity students in 3 piece suits who white wash religious beliefs as if God made them with clothes on…the Bible’s books were written by people with very different mindsets…in order to really get the Books of the Bible, you have to cultivate such a mindset, it’s literally a labyrinth, that’s no joke.
