George Carlin – Saving the Planet


George Carlin – Saving the Planet


Oct 21, 2007 / 8.03 min

In times of the Covid19 pandemic, that is ravaging every country throughout the world, nobody better than George Carlin to put things into perspective.

This clip is taken from his “Jammin’ In New York” (1992) special, as he finishes his performance with a ruthless blow to self-centered environmentalists by attacking their true motivations to save the planet while (and I don’t think most people realize this) agreeing with their main premise in a grim, ferociously honest way. “The planet is fine. The people are fucked.”

It’s not so much about saving the planet that most are concerned about but saving themselves instead.
