Blah blah blah "both sides" blah blah

One would hope that the daily newspaper in a region acutely affected by climate change would not print editorial cartoons which 1) reinforce the false equivalence meme that there are two equally legitimate sides to the argument and 2) write the whole thing off as more hot air.. as it were.

But no. Here's Walt Handelsman doing both of those things

Even outside of the climate change argument, it's interesting that the underlying theme of almost every Handelsman cartoon is that the content of the paper it's printed in isn't really worth the reader's time to care about.  Why the Advocate would think that's a good idea for the editorial page, is beyond me.
