When you think of global warming, what words comes to mind? Melting glaciers? Carbon emissions? Hurricanes? Mosquitoes? How about … comedy. No? That didn’t make your short list? Well, think again. This Sunday, the comedy event Earth to America airs on TBS, featuring flat-out funniness from the likes of Steve Martin, Robin Williams, Will Ferrell, Ben Stiller, Larry David and Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Produced by Laurie David, who will attend TED2006, the special raises awareness about the threat of global warming and urges viewers to join David’s non-partisan virtual march on Washington.
