Humor Is The Best Way To Get To A Climate Couch Potato Or Something

Seriously, good luck getting this to happen

The best way to get to a climate couch potato? Humor.

Last weekend on Instagram Live, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — champion of the Green New Deal — revived another term in the climate change lexicon. Meet “climate delayer,” a catchy way to talk about people who claim to believe in the science behind climate change, but aren’t really doing a whole lot about it.

Sooooooooooo pretty much 97% of them? Because none of them really do anything in their own lives.

Climate change is a gas with comedian Josh Healey. “Most of our conversations around climate change on the left are the gloom and doom, the apocalypse, the end of the world, and that shit is real and it’s fucking scary,” says Josh Healey, an Oakland, California-based comedian and member of the 2018 Grist 50. “But if all we feel is the doom and the fear, that doesn’t motivate people. It doesn’t make me want to get out of bed in the morning, let alone create a movement.”

The more bad news we see and hear, the less we feel we can do about it, according to a study at the University of Massachusetts — shit, that’s bad news! The Tyndall Centre advises that the same concept applies to terrifying images of climate-fueled disasters, aka “climate porn.” (It’s as hot as it sounds.)

Healey’s got his own solution: Bring humor to a humorless topic, and connect climate change to the causes that people in his North Oakland neighborhood already care a lot about.

This will happen, right? Because Warmists are known for their humor, right?

    Humorless scolds, using humor? They take themselves so deathly seriously to ever manage that.

    And WTF do the people in his North Oakland neighborhood already give a shit about?
