Upcoming Environmental Talks at Princeton University

Jenny Price, a visiting environmental historian, activist and writer at the Princeton Environmental Institute, sent me these links to upcoming talks she'll be a part of. A couple years ago, I realized that humor might help engage more people in environmental issues, and began writing tragicomic scripts having to do with climate change. It was also a matter of having put serious time into a lot of environmental projects, and feeling a need to have some fun.

I contacted Jenny when I noticed she's teaching a course at PEI about humor and the environment. Note in particular the "That's Not Funny" event, whose link includes more about Jenny's work.
