Conservationists Go Funny With Online Videos
But while satirists like Colbert provide some of the most stinging commentary on the political scene today, conservationists are often categorized as too uptight, singularly focused or angst-ridden to yuk it up. Two prominent environmental organizations are evidently laughing off that criticism this campaign season. Both the Sierra Club and the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) released irreverent online videos this week that bite back at conservative climate deniers and the Tea Party movement. LCV's quirky and animated "Tea Time with Sarah Palin" features the former governor--a "patriot as pure as Alaska snow"--as a talk show host on a "network" called Flat Earth TV praising seven Republican Senate candidates for their skepticism about the science of global warming.... The two-minute Sierra Club spot, "Rand Paul: In His Own Words," strings together snippets of the Senate candidate's insights about coal mining, the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and how limiting greenhouse gases would mean a regulatory agency run amuck and an end to capitalism. Palin makes a cameo appearance as an endorser.... Humor disarms, Palmer said, and makes people more open to being influenced. The video won't change many minds but it will interest, excite and motivate people who accept the science behind climate change, he added.
