#AntarcticLog: Wonders of the World
Posted by Shane Hanlon
#AntarcticLog is a series of comics by Karen Romano Young. You can find the originals here.
Don’t get me wrong. I don’t truly see the world through rose-colored glasses, as this comic may make it appear. But I’m looking for hope wherever it may be found, including, this month, the COP27 gathering in Egypt.
The time is also right to look at other worldwide efforts made with integrity in reference to science and a peaceful potential future. Coming up this week: Antarctica Day.
What’s more, I can’t help looking back a few years to the Paris Agreement, and the U.S.’s failure to join with other nations in their plan to strengthen the response to rising global temperatures. At COP27, the U.S. stepped forward, a hopeful sign, to me.
