Here's a very funny re-captioned New Yorker cartoon, which hits the mark for me. 
Many thanks to PriceTags for the find.

As climate change melts the Arctic, it becomes a big target for the oil industry. Companies are looking for oil using using destructive exploration techniques and want to eventually drill in these icy, northern waters. We are building a global movement to shine a light on what's happening in the Arctic so we can help put a stop to the destruction before it happens. By joining Ice Ride you can be part of this movement, through action!

Ice Rides are happening in communities around the world this Saturday. This is a family-friendly ride that will go at a pace to accommodate everyone who's participating and we will have first aid trained people at the ride, but you are responsible for your own safety.

RSVP here and we'll see you on Saturday!
