Jim Toomey Turns On the Lights


Mission Blue talks are still slowly leaking out over on TED.  The latest is from cartoonist Jim Toomey, of Sherman’s Lagoon, one of my all time favorite strips just behind the misadventures of Calvin & Hobbes.  Toomey’s take on conservation for the oceans has been more and more evident in recent years, and you can even find screenshots of a few of his strips around WaterNotes.  I’m pleased to see he was included on Mission Blue, and I love the talk he gives.  It’s a reminder that even those who are not heavily trained in the sciences and out performing field research everyday still have an opportunity to communicate with the public.
