Many of us spend a lot of our time following the bad news about climate change and the great news about the low-carbon transition. It’s serious stuff…which means that fake news sites like The Onion and The Beaverton and comedians like Andy Borowitz and Jon Stewart get to have all the fun.

But they’re not the only ones with a sense of humour.

On April Fool’s Day April 1, we’re going to correct the balance. The three best spoof pieces we receive will lead the regular news coverage in the Energy Mix e-digest. They’ll get top billing on our social media channels. And the top dozen will be added to our permanent content archive.

So think about what has irked you, astonished you, or made you want to laugh or cry about climate change and energy. Give it the craziest angle you can think of. Check out our contest rules. Then fill out our convenient online submission form. We can’t wait to see what you come up with.
