Boy, do we need more climate humor. I don’t mean cynical political cartoons that provoke a pained grimace. We need the truly funny stuff that makes us laugh out loud — or at least chuckle.
This 2.5 minute shtick by David Crowe, “Gasoholics Anonymous,” is seriously funny. Even my harshest critic — a teen jaded by 14 years of Dad’s lame attempts at humor — thought so.
Shared laughter releases tension. It is therapeutic. And it is often the best way to connect with an audience, focus attention, and “give the facts a fighting chance.”

Lighten up, and your audience will wake up. We need lots more climate jokes, stories, and cartoons. Got a favorite? Post it below in Comments.
