Examiner reported:

The New York Times’ Andrew Revkin compared the cartoon to what he called the “pretty edgy” 2010 climate-campaign video that showed a teacher blowing up students who didn’t agree with the idea of reducing their carbon footprints.

“Both are great attention getters, and were utterly stupid if the goal was do accomplish anything other than inflaming and dividing people on an important issue. And that would be a reprehensible goal,” he said, calling Sunday’s cartoon the “antithesis of humor.”

Gee, ya think?
