Poop power (or The power of propaganda)

June 4, 2009

Is it just me or have cartoons have gone to hell lately. In particular, propaganda cartoons for children:

Let’s see…we have a vaguely foreign transexual bird, her uptight environmentalist bird friend, a pooping hippo, a rodent who prefers driving over taking a hippo to work and a climate scientist… Add bad music and bad rhyming and you’ll understand the meaning of the “power of poop”. Don’t forget the whole premise for this cartoon, that global warming is melting Kilimanjaro’s snow, is poop and one of the proposed solution in the cartoon, that sugarcane as a biofuel is good for the environment, is poop too.

    Interesting articles, both, and propanga that cartoon clearly is. Global warming is a problem, but putting out inaccurate information about it in a crappy cartoon isn’t much of the solution. Guess the photo comparisons were too good to pass up.

    Instead of calling bullshit, offer a solution or two.

    Whatevs. Like you don’t call bullshit when you see it.

    offer a solution or two

    To what? Poverty? Hunger? Disease?

    I have offered the solution. And that solution is proven. It’s called economic growth.
