The start of March announces the biggest event in the climate activism calendar. Environmental advocates from around the world gather up and hold climate action rallies worldwide. Thousands take up to the streets where protests are held to raise awareness about climate change, gather support, and influence politicians and world leaders to take radical action.

But it was not always the case.

Though climate activism was always a substantive movement, it shot to its current levels of global consciousness through the efforts of a lone Swedish student a few years back.

In 2018, Greta Thurnberg, then a 15-year-old student, skipped school and sat on the steps of the Swedish parliament asking for significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. Her activism as a young person, representing the first generation that will be most impacted by the catastrophes of climate change, roused millions of students worldwide.

It gave new life to climate change debates, galvanized the masses, and most importantly, inspired the youth who are now leading the climate change movement on the streets and in the schools.

But they, and the rest of us who are passionately trying to save the planet, have a long fight to fight, and things get heated sometimes — like our dear planet.

Climate-change naysayers are one reason. Climate change myths like how plastic is a recyclable material are another. But those in the leadership positions are the worst kind of roadblocks to fight. Not only these industry and political leaders are slow to take action, but the action they do take always leaves a lot to be desired.

To keep the spirits up in the face of all these delays, denials, and dormancy, humor is the shield that climate activists arm themselves with.

Witty one-liners, catchy memes, and funny warcries come to the rescue.
