Even cartoons should adhere to scientific facts

The Opinion page is a place for people to express opinions. It's not a place for cartoons that deny scientific fact. Feb. 2 cartoon, "Al Gore froze in the polar vortex" is only the latest in a series giving credence to the conflation of weather and climate. In fact, the polar vortex descended on the U.S. because of the effects of global warming in the Arctic.

What's next? Cartoons showing the Earth to be flat? Claiming the world is 6,000 years old? Showing people from Africa as monkeys?
