Graham Readfearn recently posted his fave climate change comedy videos on The Guardian, but who has half an hour to waste on silly videos? (Don’t answer that. I totally do.) So I compiled his clips and some others into a two-minute supercut of sustainability-related punchlines.

The Onion, Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Tina Fey, Al Gore, and even Will Ferrell as George Dubya make appearances, proving that while yes, most of the time climate change is hella depressing, there are some bright spots. (OK, it’s not strictly climate change-related — there are also some gags about wind and whales in there.)

So even if your relatives insist that global warming isn’t happening, at least you can take a page from John Oliver’s book and say, “So you don’t believe in owls or hats either?”
