Cartoons by Steve Bonello
Three decades’ worth of environmental cartoons by Steve Bonello are seamlessly stitched together in a fresh commentary by Marie Briguglio, drawing upon research on Malta’s environmental pressures, status and responses. In one example after the other of the tragedy of the commons, the cartoons and narrative jointly reveal the compulsive construction, the love affair with cars, the suspicion of nature and the lacklustre law enforcement, in the context of a beautiful yet very densely populated little island. An easy to read and well-researched tragi-comic exposition of people polluting public places.
