This week's cartoon describes alternative cooking stoves. New, affordable and effective methods for cooking and heating homes in the Global South have the potential to improve the quality of life and health for millions of people (and relieve stressed ecosystems) by offering a replacement for hazardous biomass-burning stoves. A few new stove designs have been gaining attention recently. Look to our archive for discussion of two award-winning innovations: the Kyoto Box and the SolSource 3-in-1.
Editor's note: This post is part of a series featuring Worldchanging ally Andy Lubershane's original graphics. While many of the issues covered in the comics have been discussed on Worldchanging in the past, we hope that you'll be able to use this new medium in a different way … whether it's in your classroom, on your office wall, or to help explain ideas to friends and family.
Andy Lubershane researches, writes and cartoons about sustainability from his home in Boston. Check out more of his illustrations here
