Timely post. I am bit jovial person but I get serious related to environmental issues even with my friends. They tend to get serious too. I see humor has a power to convey a message in convincing and though provoking way. Kudos to those people who use humor to convey environmental message. I had a good laugh checking Vasu Primalini’s tedex video on environmental conservation. Thank you for sharing about her.
