Tracy MorganThis summer, three comedians (and one singer) in four cities will moderate environmental debates in Lexus’s newest promotion, “The Darker Side of Green.” After the success of the initial debate that Sarah Silverman moderated, Lexus decided to continue with the series.

Basically, the idea is that one environmentalist and one global warming skeptic go head to head in a debate. Mostly, though, the comedians make funny comments, like when Sarah Silverman told the crowd to shut the eff up during the debate she hosted. Sassy!

The rest of “The Darker Side of Green” starts today, July 8, in Los Angeles with Andy Samberg and will continue with Jamie Kennedy in Miami on July 20, Tracy Morgan in New York on July 27, and singer Mark McGrath (Sugar Ray) in Chicago on August 8.

Oh yeah, and this is all to promote the Lexus CT200h hybrid car, which is coming out next year. Don’t worry, though, they’re not going to bring it to the event, because it’s best to focus on the guy who did “Dick in a Box” when you’re selling cars to people with lots of money. Speaking of that, you can’t go to any of these events, unless you somehow land on the guest list. Good luck with that.

Related: This isn’t the first time Morgan has promoted a car this year. He lent his skills to Volkswagen during the Super Bowl.

    this event is put on by a global warming skeptic who is using lexus (toyota) dollars, platform and brand to push fringe ideology into mainstream automotive/lifestyle media.

    so… you buy a lexus. you pay for them to hire climate skeptics to put on a debate of global warming in support of their new hybrid line… make sense?

    lexus should be ashamed.
