“One of the most original talents in comics I’ve seen in a long time.” – Steve Bell

From one of Britain’s most talented young comic artists, here is a scathingly humorous, and thoroughly researched, exploration of climate change through the eyes of a stroppy teenage girl, a fat cat businessman and a mad scientist.

Kate Evans is an active environmental campaigner who has been marrying words and images for political effect for ten years. Her award-winning comic reportage is characterised by an ironic, self-deprecating view of the impossibility of perfection in an imperfect world.

“Whereas Al Gore’s
An Inconvenient Truth takes you to the “OK everyone, panic!” precipice and then leaves you dangling over the edge, Funny Weather is brazenly devoted to ‘Saving The World’. Evans - whose green credentials, unlike Gore’s, are squeaky clean - tackles the follies of jet-setting, offsetting, carbon sequestration and nuclear proliferation head-on and with humour. Her vision of ordinary people switching to low-carbon lifestyles, coming together in an unstoppable movement for political change and ‘sorting it out’ is inspiring. Buy this book, read it, give it away. Then, as Kate says, ‘better get on with it’.” – New Internationalist

The Big Issue

•Street newspaper

“Tackles the grim subject of climate change with innovation, humour and clarity. With lots of advice on positive action and further reading, this well-drawn tome is essential reading.”

The Guardian

•UK national newspaper

“A graphic guide to global warming that discusses some very chewy science using pictures and captions. If you think this all sounds a bit weird, you would be totally right - but then the best cartoons often are.”

The Independent

•British newspaper

“The threat of global warming may make you weep, but Kate Evans' brilliant cartoons offer hope and inspiration. And they're funny too.”
