Green Your Humor: Irreverent News

More bad news Let's be honest: We all know that enviro-head who can be a real Debbie Downer. Sure, climate change, oil spills, and nuclear disasters are serious business. But people may tune us out if we never take a moment to laugh at ourselves. This week's tips should help.

Tip #2: Change the Channel

Whether you've overdosed on constant disaster coverage or you're just a broke eco-news junkie who's been thwarted by the New York Times- paywall, humor is the best cure for a news hangover. Our favorites for comic relief: the Onion, the Daily Show with Jon Stewart, the Colbert Report, and SNL's "Weekend Update."

Tell us: What are your favorite news spoofs?
