The oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico blew almost at the same time as the announcement that the nation’s first offshore wind farm has been approved. The happy confluence of events like these is meat and potatoes for cartoonists. I couldn’t resist the comparison, especially when I started trying to imagine the worst consequence of a wind turbine exploding a few miles out in the ocean. Hint: it probably wouldn’t kill eleven people, and it certainly wouldn’t be an environmental disaster on the scale of tens of thousands of gallons of oil hitting the coast.
This bit of silliness is what I came up with.
