Our public relations firm had its first client in the evangelical environmental movement about five years ago, and we’ve been pleased to be involved with several efforts to protect God’s creation since then (including EEN, Serve God. Save the Planet, the Evangelical Climate Initiative, Restoring Eden, the Southern Baptist Environment & Climate Initiative, Renewal, and most recently, Flourish) . It can be difficult work because passions run strong and public opinion changes slowly, but we have learned a lot and we’ve seen enough results to be encouraged.
One thing that we have found is that enduring in this arena requires a good sense of humor–something too rare on both sides of the environmental divide. In the interest of bringing a few smiles to the fray today, here is a selection of political cartoons on environmental issues, primarily climate change. Enjoy!
