    D'ya love comics? I'm crazy about 'em. They've always given me a stripped-down and colorful window into the National Psyche...so this episode is devoted to a guy named Neil Wagner and his terrific comic strip, "What On Earth." It's special because Wagner has set himself the insane task of getting LAUGHS out of global warming. Yes, GLOBAL WARMING! I would think that's impossible, but Wagner's done it, and he's displayed deep feelings for humanity and an artist's eye for cool comic design along the way. Wagner's comic —and its accompanying blog—is found on NPR's ScienceFriday.com. I would so love to see this exceptional strip playing on websites EVERYWHERE!
