mmafan2223: TRUTH

Those Russkies: this isn't stand-up comedy, this is very, very tragic satire

Alex K.: "Save the trees, save the bees, save the whales, save those snails!"

Kevin Agudelo: Hes wrong on this.. ppl think hes god I wonder what scientists and Leonardo DiCaprio think of this ignorant man

charlize841: Rarely, and I mean rarely, do I find Carlin completely missing a point. But here, wow, he is completely circling the airport. The point being, of course, if we take care of the planet, maybe we can be here a little while longer.

jfl440: This bit is about disingenuous environmentalists in general, and makes no mention of "global warming." The bit is great, but misleading titles are not.

genius mchaggis: thanks for the thumbs up whoever you are.

i read his bio written by his daughter. she exposed his and his wifes juvenile drug addicted period (60s and early 70s) when he was still but a youngster and his daughter a toddler into her teens.

nasty.

he grew into a good father.

he had heart problems. many operations which rendered his heart a mechanical robot. a surgically constructed "thing".

he did not want her to know the details and she did not.

he was a fine fella by the end.

Kevin: Carlin was always spot on. A great intellect sorely missed. There are no writers, artists or philosophers today with as much acumen.

bg patriot: Carlin had it right !!!!!

Astrobrant2: Hmmm, I'm surprised I never saw this before. I've always been a fan of George Carlin, and I get a kick out of most of his humor. But he's way out of touch here. Reaching too hard for material, maybe? Sure, the earth doesn't care. It's not a conscious entity. And if it was, as George portrays, it wouldn't care if it was covered with ice or an inferno of an atmosphere like Venus.

So environmentalists aren't concerned about what the earth feels or thinks. They care about life on this planet. And it is in serious danger -- because of us. We are losing species right now at a faster rate than the worst extinction event in the planet's history, the Permian-Triassic extinction, which "killed 57% of all families, 83% of all genera and 90% to 96% of all species[7] (53% of marine families, 84% of marine genera, about 96% of all marine species and an estimated 70% of land species...)" (quote from wiki)
And the explosion of extinctions we see today has happened within the last century -- much more rapidly than in the P-T extinction event, which took a couple thousand years.

Maybe George should have followed that act up with one about the final hundred or thousand years of the catastrophe we have set into motion, joking about the agonizingly slow extinction and accompanying unimaginable misery of all those species we find so beautiful, including our own descendants. Yeah, there's a good laugh in that.

genius mchaggis: a sweeet masterpiece performance. his memorization was exquisite and his flourishes were immaculate. he died soon after this didnt he? great swan song.

genius mchaggis: i didnt realize he was a right winger! coooooollllll.

Please tell me more: Most creatures that are endangered and extinct are all caused by humans. People who do something to stop the endangered creatures, and yet he says to leave them alone? Poor deluded old fool, if he was still alive I would have said these words right back at him.

Alex W.: I think I've agreed with Carlin on every topic so far but this one.

Derek Acosta: Dude watching this high is amazingggggg

Richard Oleck: George, I usually like you. But this tim, you're way off base! You obviously have no science in your blood! Well, I guess it doesn't matter anyway, cuz now...you're extinct! ...and if the Earth is so strong, why don't we just let loose on nuclear missiles...let's just see how much this planet can really handle. I say, let's aim all nuclear missiles at a low angle, tangent to the surface and see if we can stop the Earth from spinning on its own axis. Wouldn't that be cool?!

Shawn ahenakew: it's no longer a natural extinction process George, we ARE killing them now. Big Greedy industry and US, everyday people. He complains about the global elite and how we are all controlled and it's evil and then turns around and speaks in their favour!...i like george but this is hypocrisy

Geologist100: Up until about a year ago there was a consensus that AGW anthropomorphic global warming was happening.Now the consensus is that AGW is not occurring. ( I am not arguing natural global cooling or warming)There was an erroneous belief that the AGW hypothesis must be true because of consensus.   New polls tell us that the consensus is with the AGW deniers now.  As a denier of AGW, I just hope my side remembers, consensus does not mean something is true.   Plus, AGW is and has always been just a hypothesis and has never been tested as a theory.

RottingintheMidwest: george carlin wasn't denying the fact of global warming, and in several of his routines he has pointed out how human beings and global industry have been poisoning our environment. however, his comedy is very linguistic, and at times pedantic (which is fine for comedy). what he is saying in this video is that the pollution created by human beings will cause enough problems (like global warming) to kill all of humanity, but the earth itself will still be around after we die off.
