Zach Weinersmith’s Bad Chart Thursday

Earlier this week, friend and webcomic artist Zach Weinersmith emailed me a fine example of a pre-made bad chart he found on the front page of NBC, in anticipation of Bad Chart Thursday:

narrowing the energy gap

As wonderfully bad as that bad chart is, I was more taken by the realization that Zach would be the perfect first guest poster for BCT. I asked him if he could contribute something, and within the day I had this beauty:

Thanks so much to Zach Weinersmith and Pat Robertson for this fine contribution to BCT.
