Climategate Satire Among Pulitzer-Winning Works

Mark Fiore, the sharp-witted editorial cartoonist who has become known for his skill with animated cartoons, has been awarded the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Cartooning.

Among the award-winning portfolio of cartoons considered by the Pulitzer Committee and earning Fiore this esteemed recognition is a late 2009 animation ridiculing the so-called "climategate" kerfluffle arising out of thousands of personal emails stolen from the University of East Anglia.

The animation puts the exaggerated and hysterical claims by climate science deniers into context by giving the history's greatest scientists - Kepler, Newton and Einstein - similar treatment using their own writings.
