Too much e-junk floating around
With apologies and thanks to Polyp for letting me shamelessly steal chunks of drawing.
Maybe we can all power our indlulgences with Bloom Boxes in the future
Even the Saudis seek to diversify in the face of peak oil
The NEW WEBSITE - www.marcrobertscartoons.com - will be going LIVE very soon, honestly.

The UK government - having signed up to the 10:10 campaign - proposes that it's spokesdrones should henceforth travel cattle class en route to their embassies and conferences. Very gratifying.
Where might Ern be going? He could visit Tajikistan, perhaps,
He could stop off to check out his oil interests in Peru as well.
Elsewhere, Obama OKs a new raft of nuclear plants. Let's hope they build to a higher spec' than Sellafield.
Lest we forget - other power sources are available
British bishops call on the faithful to give up carbon for lent.
Manchester campaigners achieve significant breakthrough through steady and dedicated local campaigning. Nice one.
The iPhone has an app to piss off contrarians and to educate the gadget-fixated.

Personally, I'd feel a lot happier about the evidence in favour of Genetically Modified crops if that evidence wasn't wholly owned and selectively released by corporations whose legal obligation is to maximise profit above all other considerations, and who are not legally obliged to release any contrary data under the protection of "commercial sensitivity".
By the way, where IS all the necessary fertiliser going to come from once the accessible oil runs out?
Feed the soil, not the plant

So much mud is being thrown that the slightest speck sticking to a labcoat seems enough to persuade Joe Public that the bigger scientific picture is irrelevant and that it must, therefore, all boil down to moustache twirling evil-doers Mwa-haar-haaring under ill-gotten showers of public gold. We do love a soundbite. So I guess it must be OK if the glaciers start to disappear in 50 years, not 20, and the African harvests collapse in 40 years, not 20, and if a quarter of Holland is lost to the sea, not a half. That'll be fine. Nothing to worry about. Party on dudes.
Lest we forget - it was the IPCC and the UEA themselves that brought their own errors to the attention of their peers.

The bluefin tuna goes the way of all fish.
Flexible family arrangements can be found everywhere.
I'm trying out this new layout style for the strip - it'll fit better with the new (imminent) site. Hope you like it.

This cartoon was originally published in Ethical Consumer magazine.
YOUR OPINION PLEASE, ON THE FOLLOWING:-
I'm about to commit to a domain name for this new website that is, honestly, about to go live. I am given to understand that the title Throbgoblins (international or otherwise) is something of a turn-off for many as it sounds like some sort of pornographic smurf movie. So I would welcome any feedback on whether I should keep it or just go with my own name. I know that a rose by any other name would still smell of old man and wet fox, but I have to plump for something, and it might as well be something somebody somewhere quite likes.

I have finally sorted out my technofear and got 450 cartoons - from the early LabRats through to the Slamdown comic - uploaded to the new website database. So we're on the home stretch. I'm now actually quite excited about the new site. I think you'll like it. Graeme Sherrif has done a fabulous job and I hope it will all be going live soon.
