"We know you're there climate change, come out with your hands up..." 24 September, 2005.

Reference Number: DCDL-0000228

The scene shows united States President George Bush bawling through a loud hailer at the Gulf Coast which has been hit recently, by first Hurricane Katrina and then Hurricane Rita. He is taking cover behind a military vehicle and is being supported by a militiaman with a large gun. George Bush is trying to scare 'Climate change' which is probably responsible for the hurricanes in the same way as he tries to scare terrorism. He endeavours to turn these rather abstract entities into something less abstract that he feels he can threaten. The cartoon is a comment on George Bush's inadequate way of dealing with reality.
