The Paris Freakout in One Great Cartoon

I woke up this morning to find 40 (!) responses from unhappy people on my Twitter account. Facebook had more than 50. Many of them telling me:
  • It is OK for the borough of Manhattan to burn literally millions of lights (and, create greenhouse gas) to fight creating greenhouse gas. It had to do with my criticism of lightning up buildings to criticize Trump. ADDITION: Let me try this again, because the criticism keeps coming. If you want to protest the generation of greenhouse gas TURN THE LIGHTS OFF. That makes a far better protest than "changing the color of lights that would have been on anyway." And, no, other than a navigation light at the top of the spire, the lights at the top of the WTC are not required to be on at all times.
