George Carlin: an Earth Day Message for Gated Community Bike Path-loving Yuppie Hippies.

“The planet isn’t going anywhere…we are!”

“Save the Planet? What?! We don’t even know how to take care of ourselves, yet!”

“I’m tired of Earth Day.”

George Carlin gets it mostly wrong, gets it mostly right, talks up plastic, HIV, talks down environmentalists…and makes it mostly funny:

The late, great, George Carlin had some amazingly funny views on life; Even on saving the Earth.
