Dire Global Warming Image Presented on The Simpsons

I have said before but I will say it again, the long-running FOX animated series The Simpsons has over stayed its welcome on television. It use to be funny but now that it has become stuck-up on its political messages – take for instance their overtly on-the-nose criticism of the US-led invasion of Iraq in their last Halloween special – it has grown increasingly old.

The latest example of this comes from the program’s first new episode of the new year in which Marge and Lisa after entering an oceanographic institute come across a display which shows a model of New York City flooding within three years as a result of the effects of Global Warming – complete with dead people floating on the top of the water.
