Cartoons for the Classroom: Safety vs. Energy

Political cartoons are a poignant way to examine energy sources. This analysis handout has scholars examining a cartoon by Joe Heller (a link to his gallery is included for possible extensions).

Learners consider the way Heller represents each energy method, and determine the point he makes.
