I added color to my drawing from yesterday. I'm making this available as a free/pay-what-you-choose poster (various sizes) that you can print yourself (or download it and have it printed somewhere). Maybe you'd like to bring it to the upcoming climate change protests, if you're going. I'm also selling a print if you'd rather get a physical print. I'll add the links in the comments.
