"Hey! Who turned the lights out?"

"I did, because of global warming we are going to have to rely on older technologies! Lanterns instead of strip lighting! No more computers! I want reports typed on typewriters from now on! I need your report typed out in triplicate if you will Frankie! I need it sent to all our offices worldwide by lunchtime!"

"But Sir…we have no email, how will it get there?"

"Send them by jet courier of course!"

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.
