Specifically, this work is about Climate Change, but it also has a broader connotation. Pinocchio is an icon in our culture for being a liar, and here he stands for us all, collectively, as we lie to each other and lie to ourselves about climate change being a hoax, vaccinations being harmful, saying that criticizing the president is always fake news, etc., until we no longer can distinguish what's true from false. Hoaxes, conspiracy theories, superstitions, and ignorance replace Truth until we metaphorically drift so far from shore that we become lost at sea, at which point the Truth will swallow us as Monstro the whale devoured Pinocchio, for lies have consequences.
