Strip by: David Morgan-Mar

{T-Rex flees a squalus weather phenomenon}
T-Rex: Oh noes!
T-Rex: SHARKNADO!
T-Rex: I laughed at the movies, but now it's really happening!!
Utahraptor: Scientists tried to warn you, but you didn't listen!
Utahraptor: Now it's an environmental catastrophe!
Caption: Climate change deniers, this is you in a few years.
T-Rex: Whoa, that turned serious quickly...

The author writes:

Although I've worked as a scientist for close to two decades now, I've never once issued a warning of potential disaster if some rich dude or politician goes ahead with some reckless plan, and then had it come true when they ignored my warnings, and then I had to go in and rescue innocent people from the resulting mess.

In some ways, I feel this makes me a failure as a scientist.

Also, go read the plot summary of Sharknado 4 in Wikipedia. Trust me, it's 5 minutes well spent.
