Look how cute the NY Times op-ed is!
Look, is this not adorable? Great whimsical cartoon-like illustrations by Katia Fouquet, who I have never noticed until now. In the opinion section of the New York Times, no less! There are 4 different paintings, each one representing climate change in various parts of the world. From the Times: Though this is a global issue, ...

Limited Calorie diets make monkeys cranky.
