** With the collective media madness over the alleged Russian interference in the US 2016 presidential election and the subsequent push for a more aggressive anti-Russian foreign policy, the escalation of military conflicts in the Middle East, the far-right swing in Europe and the (still pretty much ignored) fact that all the financial bubbles that exploded in 2007/08 are now bigger than before, this comic has turned into horrifying, (hopefully) unintentional foreshadowing. And there are plenty of regions where screaming in sheer terror is already too common. Happy 2017.
*** Charlottesville, Harvey, Irma, Jose, Maria, the earthquakes, Las Vegas- 2017 seems determined to include all the types of disasters and tragedies it can. And we still have almost a quarter of a year to go.

** What is worse is that unlike previous entries on this list, this is real, and according to projections that "Cretaceous hothouse" may be a reality if the current path continues.
