Cartoons by Josh

Click here for the 'Cartoons by Josh Calendar 2015' page


The Calendar page for 2015 is  here. The Calendar page for 2014 is here.

Some very kind words:

"No doubt lots of people have great drawing skills, a fine sense of humour
or good understanding of science. But Josh is the only person I know who has all three."

Matt Ridley, journalist and author of The Rational Optimist.


"For all of us involved in the deadly serious, incredibly complex and suffocatingly technical debate
over climate change, Josh has performed a unique service. His brilliant cartoons have sent constant
little shafts of light through the fog. He follows the arguments, he knows the names,
he draws like a dream and he makes us laugh. In a world where we are expected to take charlatans like
Al Gore, James Hansen, Michael Mann, Lord Deben and Ed Davey seriously, his deftly
witty comments put it all in blessed perspective, in a way for which we are all in his debt."

Christopher Booker, writer and journalist


"Josh’s calendar is not only the perfect present for the evil climate change denier in your life
but is also the perfect present for winding up the maddening, sanctimonious,
scientific-method-shunning, green catastrophist in your life.
Apart from being brilliantly drawn - they actually look like the people they’re supposed to look like
- Josh’s cartoons are also funny and accurate. So: get Josh’s splendid 2014 calendar now."

James Delingpole, journalist, blogger and author of Watermelons.


"The essential accoutrement for every climatologist's office"

Andrew Montford, author of The Hockey Stick Illusion and host of BishopHill blog


"Josh’s ability to capture the moment with insight, wit and superb graphic art will immortalise the events of 2013.
Something to treasure for years to come. "

Roger 'Tallbloke'


The Calendar is a review of the year with as many of the cartoons from 2012 as possible
and I have been adding links to the cartoons' background stories to the Calendar page.

New cartoons usually on BishopHill - see the CartoonsbyJosh sidebar link -
and most are featured in the 2015 Calendar.

One thing that I do not have space for in the Calendar are Cartoon Notes.
I hope to set up a page specifically for notes in the future but in the meantime here are some notes from 2012.
The cartoon notes of the RMetS Communicating Climate Science meeting

The cartoon notes of Cartoons Notes of Handling Uncertainty
The Royal Society Conference on Uncertainty at Chicheley Hall.

There are some more recent cartoon notes from 2014 on BishopHill too,
The Royal Society's conference Next steps in Climate Science
Battle of ideas: New Environmentalism and the brilliant Ross McKitrick at the GWPF
