Environmentalists say we have only a few
years left before climate change becomes
irreversible. But the message is being
ignored because it’s often delivered by
earnest, scolding, greener than thou doom
merchants. Few people want to live in a
world dominated by green puritans where
humour has become extinct.
Lighten up! We can save the world –but
not without a sense of humour.
Noel O’Hare’s new book How to Save the
World by Recycling Your Sex Toys dares
to poke fun at the scruples, attitudes and
dilemmas of those who want to offset their
guilt and save the Earth.
How to Save the World … is a fierce
and funny satire on green worriers.
‘Agony aunt’ letters from concerned citizens
of the environment pitch a host of bizarre
and deliciously cheeky questions about how
they might become more environmentally
Eco guru Dr
Green will put your mind at rest about the
issues you face as a friend of the Earth.
Can you harness your kids’ energy to reduce
your power consumption? Will a solar-powered
vibrator soothe your eco rage? Can your
artificial hip be recycled when you die?
Should you join the Voluntary Human
Extinction Movement? In his blunt but
humorous style, Dr Green answers these
questions and many more.
Dr Green on recycling old sex toys:
‘Coated with silver paint, a dildo studded
with pins would make a truly eye-catching
On repurposing your liposuctioned fat:
‘A small light burning your own biodiesel on
the dining table at dinner would be a gentle
reminder of the perils of overeating.’
Nourished and informed by Dr Green’s wise
words, you too can help save the world and
salve your conscience.
