Did this video help you?

Cuythulu: I´m baffled as to how many people are misunderstanding him, he´s not saying climate change isn´t real he is saying climate change will not destroy the planet it will destroy us, then the planet will continue to exist as if we were never here, so yeah, even if you don´t give a crap about nature you should take care of the planet because it is on your best interest.

Truthseeker1961: Right on the George, ahead of your time...more and more people are waking up to this 'Save The Planet' bullcrap....Whole Foods years ago: ''Sir would that be Paper or Plastic?" Me: "Bag it up in Aluminum Foil for all I care, and what's a White Man doing having Dreadlocks?"

Tyler Gutierrez: Funny how so many people are saying George is wrong but hes totally right. In every sense of the word. I mean you really think that farts and plastic bags are gonna be the end of the Earth some day? lol despite the fact that he was probably a democratic liberal, he spoke the truth about humanity in this particular topic. Infact it was very profound. Almost seems true that we are just existing simply just cause. R.I.P. George Carlin.

Liza Persson: There are a few who manage, at least occasionally, to step out of the influence of their biases and just observe. There are fewer still who make it their main point of view; not to be without biases, but to be so aware of them as to be able to see them instead of see through them. What emerges then, I think, is not a view in which one or another of the perspectives into which people tend to fall on one issue or another is more right or wrong. Rather it is a vantage point that sees all of those perspectives as understandable, reasonable, but also not exhaustive. That they are optional. All of them.

Henry Reimer: I want to punch this guy in the face. I freaking hate this guy, he doesn't understand anything. Yes there has been worse, but the problem is, EVERYTHING freakING DIED. if we keep it up we will be killing off millions of us a year, not including the worlds steady incline to become inhabitable? What we are doing is pushing ourselves to extinction, the earth can eventually rid itself of these gasses but we wont be around to see that if we carry on acting like this idiot.

TVC15ohoh: "Saving endangered species is just one more arrogant attempt by humans to control nature." Carlin has frustrated me for 30 years. He was hilarious back in the early/mid '70's and I always WANT to like him and enjoy his humor - and I do at times (though of course I'm speaking of clips on YouTube, not in real life, seeing as he passed away a few years ago) - and find him insightful if not occasionally revelatory. But then he'll stay stupid crap like the above line and justify it by pointing out that over 90% of all species that have existed on this planet at one point or another over the hundreds of millions of years this planet has been supporting living creatures (not including things like bacteria or single cell organisms) have disappeared and that WE didn't kill them. Yeah, well, at the risk of stating the obvious, but over the last few hundred years, we've been seriously adversely affecting nature thanks to our rapid growth as a species, which has resulted in the destruction of millions of square miles of natural habitat; hundreds of millions of tons of crap poured into the air, water and land on an annual basis, and a delightful way we have of shooting (i.e., murdering) living creatures for "sport" (i.e., for the sheer joy of snuffing out said living creatures.) And let's not forget our voracious need for food and energy (e.g., whale blubber for heating oil and light.) I think it's fair to say that since we, as the dominant species on this planet, have impacted on the rest of the planet's creatures to the extent that we have, it's only fair and proper that we do something to try to undo the damage we have done. Short of a natural catastrophe, as in a massive meteor hitting the planet or a "super volcano" erupting, this planet has never seen one species have as much impact on all the other species as ours has. In the last 40 years alone, we have lost HALF of all the living creatures that roamed on the land 40 years ago (which happens to coincide with our own population doubling from about 3.5 billion people to over 7 billion.) We have a moral obligation to fix that which we have broken, or at least repair it to whatever extent we can. Everything is connected; prior to our rise as a species, nature was in balance. Yes, species came and went, but they happened naturally and at a FAR slower pace. We've upended the natural array, the natural order, and if we do nothing, and the oceans become depleted of fish (as they are scheduled to in some 35 years at the rate we are going) and the planet's temperature rises the nine degrees it's expected to over the course of the next hundred years, we will pay a price we simply cannot afford. The planet is self-correcting and it will get rid of us if we mess with it too much, just as you and I would swat a mosquito that's landed on our arm and is sucking our blood. We are little more than a pest to this planet. We need to be, as it says in the Bible (though I am not religious) "good stewards of the planet." So sorry, George, but you're wrong on this one, and only an arrogant, ignorant man would think as you do on this topic, speaking of arrogance.

robpsychobob: He didn't deny science or climate change. He was basically just saying we're freaked and that it doesn't matter. We say things like "save the planet" when we haven't even learned how to save each other. He's saying no matter how much we pollute the planet absolutely nothing will happen to it at all, only the creatures living on it will be effected. The environment will correct itself. If every species goes extinct new ones will just spring up to take their place and the "universe" won't even skip a beat. He's saying we'll go extinct and it won't make a single difference because human beings are just another insignificant form of life. I also feel he was saying that if we go extinct we deserve it because we've brought it on ourselves through our many avoidable flaws and not living up to the full potential we're capable of.

SearchBucket2: George Carlin was a brilliant satirist, but to those who take him too seriously his act involved taking a mainstream accepted norm and folding it inside-out for a laugh. Too many people take his words and utterances literally. His "views" on stage would hardly cause such laughter if they went with mainstream of opinion, would they? No, all he would do, like any satirist is just re-focus on some other issue to "shock" the mainstream into laughter.

c4p0ne: And in the last 200 years, we've managed to freak the planet up *so royally* as to boggle the mind of any rational thinking human. George was "ahead of his time" on some issues, like the horse-crap of religion, but on the issue of caring for our planet (which *intrinsically* means taking care of ourselves), he got very, very, very little traction, except from a gaggle of totally uneducated numbskulls. Just look at the posts in this thread. *BTC: 1PADNHhze28JLnXkvhKa6PjMVzspAnwgkH*

Venomancer: Global warming is real, you idiot.

Databyter: Think of Manmade Global warming theory as an acid test for intelligence. Not education, or instillation of bais or political correctness, but intelligence. You don't even need to listen to the skeptics that are censored and ridiculed by the brainwashed zombies produced by cookie cutter moron factories. The theory disproves itself. Every time it makes a claim or prediction it falls short over time. Every time they base a model on CO2's expected influence, or causal loops, or Ice caps disappearing, they disprove their own agenda. Not to mention that they have such a fervent zeal for the theory, more of a religion really, that they feel JUSTIFIED and morally authorized to fake, twist, and misrepresent data. The other side doesn't need to do that. All they do is point it out, and yet the slack jawwed morons and their wide eyed zealots cannot hear them, cannot hear the truth, because you see they are SO SURE. After all EVERYBODY knows the emperor is wearing clothes. Anthropogenic Global warming theory is a great tool for seperating the herd from the thinkers. It's kind of the way I feel about idiots who ride ultraloud monkeyhanger motorcycles.. Thank goodness they have those loudass shaky oil leaking pieces of crap to warn us that stupid people are nearby and you might want to take cover. Databyter

10Elmer10: I came here expecting him to bash the freak out of climate change deniers because he seems to be a clever guy. But he seems like the biggest freaking idiot ever in this video. Denying science. LOL

Emanuel Muresan: Even this guy revolves continuously around the notion that there is something greater. He simply refused to acknowledge that that someone is God

joe mama: What a depressing stupid retard. He was a liberal. He was an atheist liberal commie

Jay-sen Phang: Humans are as natural as any other organism on the planet. The fact that the majority of humans have dissociated from nature because of a superiority complex driven by societal organisation and religion does not mean that we suddenly unnatural. We are out of ecological balance but nature has ways of restoring this and if we recolonise this we will be able to work with nature to exist in a more natural balance. The driving force of life on this planet is DNA. It is in control of all life and while we humans like to think we are an independent and superior we will never overcome our DNA. DNA wants to change and evolve. It drives our species to discover it so we could manipulate it: hence genetic manipulation the next evolutionary leap. Driven by DNA. As natural as can be. Humans are just a tool DNA has developed to help it evolve and infect this solar system and the rest of this galaxy the same way it infected this planet. That's why DNA developed NASA. 

Robert Breschini: Environmentalism is dogmatic, uncompromising, rules from the top down, and operates on the premise that humanity is a blighted curse that must be reformed and redeemed through any means necissary. Environmentalism is a proto religion in its formulative stages. Get ready for another chapter of mindless zombies mudering and bullying the non believers

Jules Dash: Hey I think if we can lower C02 and methane in the atmosphere we can avoid our species dying off in the next couple hundred years........ 

TVC15ohoh: "Saving endangered species is just one more arrogant attempt by humans to control nature. It's arrogant meddling. It's what got us in trouble in the first place." Er, um, actually, George, what you call "arrogant meddling" is really just humans trying to mitigate and/or reverse the damage that we caused in the first place. It's not arrogant; it's conscientious and compassionate. To paraphrase a statement made by Colin Powell back in late '01/early '02, "You broke it; you fix it." (And yes, I know he said, "You break it; you bought it." Using Carlin's logic, if we've adversely affected the climate and the world is heating up in part or mostly due to our actions over the last 200 or so years, it would be arrogant to try to reverse the warming trend and therefore shouldn't do anything. I've been a fan of his since 1972's album, "Class Clown" and I've agreed with Carlin more often than not, but this is not one of those occasions. It seemed to me that the older he got, the more cynical, bitter, jaded and preachy he got. And he became less funny. That's the main difference between him and Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Jon Oliver and Bill Maher: As Carlin got older and lost his faith in humanity, he concurrently lost his sense of humor, while Stewart, Colbert, Oliver and Maher are as good as they've ever been, that is, anywhere from very good to brilliant. Though undoubtedly exasperated by the foibles, idiocy, hypocrisy and downright evil put upon us by our elected leaders and corporate overlords, Stewart, et al, have never given up hope. They can still find the humor in the midst of the awful absurdities and upset that surrounds us all. I wish Carlin had too.

Kyle Towers: It's a sign of the desperation of science deniers that they have to point to a comedian - and then misinterpret even him - instead of listening to the science. Fools. Buffoons. But in large numbers, all you fools are an extreme danger to all of us. Stupid kills.

disgustedvet: Use plastic , save a tree . Remember THAT moronic campaign brought to you by the Save The Planet weenies ?

DmaxHd: That's right lefty freaks , listen to George ..

David C Kendall: He makes us think...and we hate that, don't we?

andy765gtr: nihilist carlin doesnt give a stuff about climate change because, you know, we are all dead anyway long term. nothing matters so just party on guys. great argument. the argument of all criminals and sex offenders. i'm guessing he wouldnt have thought that if a peado had got hold of one of his kids (if he had any) and used the 'dont worry, we are all dead anyway, so just have fun' argument i like carlin on religion, but hes way off on this one. his attitude stinks as much as any republitard

Peter Schopf: Earth Abides...Read It!!!

Bruce Bosco: He is right the planet will be here but WE WILL BE GONE. and the elephants whales and thousands of creatures we are directly responsible for endangering.

ElizabettaC123: Let's see, his argument is that we're arrogant if we want to fix problems that we ourselves have created. And we're assholes if we want to save animals that are on the way to extinction due entirely to human interference in nature. If we want to stop interfering with nature, then we're interfering with nature. I had no idea this guy was such a dumb ass

tomlxyz: He does NOT deny climate change. He says that we are not destroying the earth completly. It is mostly harming ourselves. As he says "We are going away"

TheEukaryote: People who understand global warming know that it is not about "saving the planet" and they don't pretend that it is. In the long run the planet will be fine. The problem is trying to save ourselves. Global warming will cause climate change leading to worse storms in some places, droughts in others and flooding in other places. Sealevel rise will threaten many coastal cities. This is what it is about. If we carry on as we are we will be truly freaked.

parminder kumar: The world is MORE THAN 1 degree F cooler than it was 15 years ago. Al Gore said in his Nobel acceptance speech - “The North Polar ice cap is falling off a cliff. It could be completely gone in summer in as little as seven years. ” Well it is 2014 and the 7 years have passed. Recent satellite images show that not only have the icecaps not melted . . . but they’ve expanded in size by 43% to 63%. An area twice the size of Alaska — America's biggest state — was open water two years ago and is now covered in ice. Since 2002, the ocean temperatures have fluctuated less than 1 degree Fahrenheit. There is no warming. President Obama even tweeted on May 16, 2014, “97% of scientists agree: climate change is real, man-made and dangerous.” THIS IS BULLSH#T ! Well this 97% must be PEER REVIEWED scientists of Rothschild. The truth is a mere 1% of scientists believe human activity is causing most of the climate change. Capt Ajit Vadakayil says that there is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of . . . carbon dioxide ( caused by coal burning ) will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth's atmosphere and disruption of the Earth's climate. Earth’s temperatures rise and fall based on its exposure to . . . the sun. COMMONSENSE ! There are times when the sun gets hotter and times when it cools off as measured by “sunspots.” Multiple solar cycles determine the temperatures of the Earth. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has been using COMPUTER MODELS and NOT real temperatures. This is a bigger bullcrap than the Adam Smith economic model . In 2001, when Al Gore stepped out of white house as VP he was was worth less than 1.9 million USD. Today he is worth more than 105 million USD. He had merrily invested in “green-tech” companies . . . 14 of which received more than $2.5 billion in loans, grants, tax breaks, and more from the Obama administration. John Casey, a former space shuttle engineer and NASA consultant, is out with his book "Dark Winter: How the Sun Is Causing a 30-Year Cold Spell," which warns that a radical shift in global climate is underway, and that Al Gore and other environmentalists have it completely wrong. The earth, John Casey says, is cooling, and cooling fast. Who the hell is Al Gore ? Capt Ajit Vadakayil says that the earth is rapidly growing colder because of diminished solar activity. SUN CONTROLS THE EARTHs CLIMATE ! CARBON DI OXIDE EMISSIONS DO NOT CAUSE GLOBAL WARMING !! Russian astrophysicist Habibullo I. Abdussamatov has argued that a new mini-ice age has begun— http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2011/12/lie-of-greenhouse-gases-causing-global.html capt ajit vadakayil .. 

joe mama: Stupid hippies

Dan Lenoir: I can't believe there are people in the comments section posing scientific debates to this... Your science is based on human perception... Global warming/Climate change is only detrimental to the species living on the earth... But the earth ITSELF, will NOT blow up and disappear... All the species could become extinct and it's environment could burn down, but earth will continue to spin and time will heal all wounds and it will cure itself... This is a philosophical point of view... How can you save the planet when it will remain here long after you are gone and have done all the damage you could possibly muster? Even nuclear war wouldn't destroy the Earth... It would destroy OUR earth, our habitat, our homes, our bodies... Our idea of earth built through our perception... But it will not destroy the earth. The one continuously spinning on billions of years of universal wisdom.

krisztian76: Stupid logic for stupid people. He gave the permit to continue crapting all over the world. That's what public needs. 

Cyr Uay: Earth as a planetary object of rock, magma, lava and water will be around but it's possible that all biological life will become extinct. So do better humans, because all life can end and it might never occur again.

Timothy Maggard: We are the first animal on this planet with the capacity to alter our surroundings! Were not changing the geological status quo, were exacerbating it! But we dont appreciate what we would actually have to give up to cease exacerbating it.

pigeonpsycho: manbearpig is real

Christopher Casey: Even if global warming is real, he is right. The planet is not going anywhere. We are. If anything, global warming probably is just the planet getting rid of us. Self important humans think we can fix every problem. 

pcmustgo: People always shriek that "diversity" is such a "strength" - yet this "strength" is ONLY forced on white people...why is that? The end game is always the same: whites simply cannot win no matter what they do: -when white people flee (white flight) - white people are evil and "racist" -when white people stay - white people are evil and benefit from "white privilege" (Even if white people move in - white people are then evil "colonizers & oppressors".) "Diversity" in reality means: "there are too many white people; there must be fewer white people & eventually NO white people". So called "diversity" is in reality just a code word for white genocide.

sgtsnakeeyes11: this guy is such a freaking idiot

NinetyFive Nasty: Nononono. You see. He's totally wrong. If you just pay enough money to Al Gore, the exhausts of his private jet will finally magically turn into fairy dust that gets rid of all the bad, bad CO2. I just wish more people understood that Al Gore needs to eat money to be able fart fairy dust into the atmosphere. I wish the world would finally wake up to the fact that we need Al Gore, the IPCC and the United Nations to fart purple unicorns with neverending erections and cherubs and rainbows all over the planet so everything will magically turn great and jolly. Why are people still denying this? You EVIL BASTARDS!

ILL Gotti: SO.. if there is all this unprecedented polar ice melting... where are the disappearing shore lines from the ocean levels rising?? Last time I checked, the Outer Banks are still there.. Are you guys forgetting that they melt in the summer and REFREEZE in the winter? No one ever shows the REFREEZING diagram.. Damn it, I would prefer to not be TAXED to breath AIR.. SO if you guys would please keep your stupid freaking opinions (FEARS) to yourself, that would be great.

Dakota Andrus: The problem isn't animals are going extinct. The problem animals are going extinct accelrating rated do to human activity and it is freaking up the food chain 

Garland Johnson: Great video, keep up the great work in posting these intelligent videos. Thank you. 

pivohunter: So what if Global warming is real, we as a species cannot irreparably damage the planet. Even if we launched all the nukes we had the planet in time would heal itself, that's what it does. The Earth has about another 4 and a half billion years left of being able to sustain life. We can only freak it up for ourselves. Like GC says, the planet is fine. It's the people that are freaked.

Salim Mahmood: george carlin is the realist motherfreaker...always speaks the truth! 

Jay-sen Phang: what an idiot...we don't interfere with nature...we are a part of nature. I'm tired of his ignorant crap.

Lance Winslow: I love this video, too funny.

Vattens: He was always ahead of his time, and here he calls out a now all too fashionable line of bollocks that is unfortunately being swallowed up like candy. Climate change is something that has been happening since time began, and humans have freak all to do with it. It's cyclical and it's going to continue long after our species is extinct. And hey, when that happens there won't be anyone here arguing over this crap anymore. I can picture an alien species later visiting after we go bye bye, read books on the nonexistent global warming, religion, politics, and all this, then one will look at the others and say, "Boy, these people were freaked anyway!" LOL

Mike Liston: George Carlin was a awesome man Love all his stuff :)

Alexandrea Dawn: Hmm if global warming is the first part before an ice age, and we have had several before, does it stand any reason to think that maybe we only sped it up(or slowed it down, or maybe none of those) ? After all, one may theorize that yes, we may have had an affect on the climate, but it seems to be a rather small effect on the climate (remember folks, climate is always changing, all the time, and this may just be another usual climate change)
