Frankie’s Christmas : A festive wish
Frankie: “Dad, what’s global warming?”
Dad: “Oh, it’s when you produce so much smoke it acts as a blanket and heats up the earth.”
Frankie: “So what makes the smoke?”
Dad: “Burning fuel to make electricity. But our fire is smoke free of course!”
Frankie: “Do you think we should turn off our tree lights?”
Dad: “I think we’ll be ok to leave them on! … Maybe we’ll turn the outside lights off!”
The world can be a complex place. See how Frankie and his colleagues at Global.org grapple with the thorny public policy issues of our time in “Frankie.org”, a cartoon strip by Stik, especially for the OECD Observer.
(This Frankie strip originally appeared in OECD Observer No 258/259, December 2006.)
