Tis the season to be jolly – my 10 favourite sustainability jokes

One of the great traits of Australian’s is that they are (in most part) modest, humble, self-deprecating and with a sense of humour. So with a laugh for Christmas here are a few of my favourite sustainability jokes. Not sure what is meant by the third one though!

Q: Why are environmentalists bad at playing cards? A: They like to avoid the flush.

Q: What did the environmentalist get when he sat down for too long on an iceberg? A: Polaroids!

Q: Why doesn’t a Sustainability Consultant look out the window in the morning? A: It gives him something to do in the afternoon!!


Q: Why does a Time Magazine survey state only 85% of Americans think global warming is happening? A: The other 15 percent work for the oil industry!

Q: How many climate sceptics does it take to change a lightbulb? A: None. It’s too early to say if the light bulb needs changing.

Q: How do Prius owners drive? A: One hand on the wheel, the other patting themselves on the back

Q: How do you know your a bad recycler? A: You give the recycle bins to your kids to use as toboggans.


Q: What do you get when you cross an environmentalist with direct action? A: Arrested!

“They said on the news tonight that if gas prices get any higher, we could see something totally unprecedented here in California. People actually walking.” Jay Leno

Two planets meet. The first one asks: “How are you?”
“Not so well”, the second answered “I’ve got the Homo Sapiens.”
“Don’t worry,” the other replied, “I had the same. That won’t last long.”
