"Hey Helen, I hear the boss wants to save on electricity bills!"

"That's right Frankie. He's got a pilot scheme going. Renewable energy, he calls it."

"Great! But I haven't seen any solar panels or wind turbines, have you?"

"Can't say I have... Phew! Those treadmills seem tougher today!"

"Funny how the lights dim when we stop running."


The world can be a complex place. See how Frankie and his colleagues at Global.org grapple with the thorny public policy issues of our time, in this cartoon strip.
