Global warming and the environment are serious topics that should be talked about. However, humor does often help especially if you want to discuss these topics with your teens. Bill McKibben, writer and environmentalist, was on the Colbert Report the other night. He is currently working on a campaign, 350.org, and spoke to Colbert about why 350 is the most important number in the world. This very funny clip helped to raise awareness of this serious topic:
|The Colbert Report||Mon - Thurs 11:30pm / 10:30c|
October 24, 2009 is going to be the 350 International Day of Action on Climate Change. In over 1,500 locations around the world, people will unite in a common call to lower carbon levels in the atmosphere to 350 parts per million. It will be a day of rallies, marches, bike rides, concerts and other events.

I hope that Stephen Colbert's show will start everyone talking about the 350 movement.
