“Blind Fear”

“Blind Fear”: An editorial cartoon about putting the Coronavirus into perspective

Yesterday I was at the Creatives for Climate event “Action Works”, organized by The Humblebrag to foster collaboration in between creatives to try and change things before it’s too late.

We didn’t talk about the virus that’s spreading panic all over the world. We talked instead about the issue for which we should really panic: climate change.

It’s sad to see that a serious side-effect of this epidemic is the fact that a number of incredibly worrisome signs pass under silence: locusts invade Africa and the Middle East; this has been the warmest winter ever; Arctic and Antarctic are melting down; pollution is eating up our lungs. Not to mention things not related to climate but sad and infuriating, such as people killed in senseless wars, racism, etc, etc.

When will the media start doing their job and stop milking this virus story, to focus their attention on the real issues we need to face?
