Brodner’s Cartoon du Jour: Chesapeake Totem

In the excellent Frontline documentary from last Tuesday night, Hedrick Smith sketched out the rapid rate at which we are killing our waterways. I got the idea for a totem pole showing the parts of at least one aspect of this problem. You can sign a petition by CLICKING HERE. And see a film clip below.


Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
