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.

Benzene: George Carlin is absolutely right. Global warming is a threat to humanity,
not to the planet. Plastic bags and aluminum cans will not destroy the
planet....but it will destroy us. The science is indisputable. 2014 was the
hottest year on record just like 2013, 2012, 2011 and 2010 were the hottest
years. Carbon emission will jeopardize our existence. What Carlin is saying
is that we should change the language from "planet hurting" to "humans
hurting" since this is the reason global warming is considered such a big
problem. Of course, the planet is changing (less saline seas, extreme
weather patterns, ice caps melting, etc.) but that doesn't mean the
planet's life is threatened. If anything, global warming is the planet's
immune response to us harming it, i.e. harming our own selves. After we're
extinct, the earth will have plenty of milleniums to undo everything we did
and it'll be as if we never even here.
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.

counterculture: We are nature, or at least part of the process. You see, we don't come into
this world, we come out of it, in the same way that an apple tree grows
apples, yet, we think we're a separate entity altogether which is why we
attempt to control nature. It's all a balancing act, the earth knows what
Charles Ashurst: Earth is a self-correcting system - with or without people. Call me an
arrogant presuming to save the endangered species - namely, you and me -
twerp, but I'd like the Earth to have people. Just my personal prejudice.
rossokovsky: Not funny.We ARE destroying the planet.
Cecille Chan: Arrogant meddling........
Edward Ashton: This video is a great sort of filter to see whether a person has a sense of
humor and poetry. If your reaction to this is to become indignant and start
gibbering about climate and politics, then I would suggest that you
probably lead a pretty tiresome, tedious, unimaginative existence. Sit back
and enjoy a bit of utterly brilliant comedy from one of the great
grandmasters of the form; you're bumming the rest of us out.
Chris Pearson: So...AIDS/HIV is the earth's cleansing experiment? I can see why he quickly
switched tracks before signing off and it had time to linger in people's
Bertie Blue: He's so right, in the absence of definitive proof people trying to promote
a bust theory about co2 are tits.
mark y: He misses a lot about people's growing awareness that those dying species
are dying because of human activity and saving them is an affirmation of a
new way to perceive man's role in nature. Many of us see our place in the
natural world as not dominant but co-existent. So, for example, you look at
the state of rainforests and say who cares, you are propagating the same
mindset that is responsible for eroding those forests. Thank goodness not
everyone thinks like Carlin.
jack rohde: Global warming killed the Dinosaurs? solar radiation from solar flairs
causes gamma rays to fluctuate in microwaves heating up the earth and the
atmosphere, not your big gas burning v8 car.
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.
George Carlin on Global Warming: http://youtu.be/BB0aFPXr4n4
minai5: Here is a very good video on this topic, which may clarify any
global warning, global governance and new world order (You Tube)
Also worth to see: dr don Easterbrook exposes... (You Tube)
Michelle Crosby: George snapped, and is funnier than ever! I snapped in the same way!!M
G R E L L O T: Carlin was great. He shows us how stupid and ignorant we are and we laugh.
But he tells the truth.
Hugh Williams: Thanks for the post.
RML 3000 v: I miss Carlin
kingrider75: What he's saying is that we ain't hurtin this planet you dipcrap! Lol give
me a break
32shumble: So not worth trying to save endangered species? Because 90% of species have
already gone extinct?
So perhaps it's not worth saving lives because 100% of people are going to
'don't worry - do nothing - get stoned'
Frank Papandrea: freaking great
Michelle Crosby: Someone actually said on here, stupid kills? Hahahaha, simply being alive
puts you in direct fire!
Hubert Smith: I wonder how many gallons of California water it took to grow a single
almond for George.
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?"
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.
LordSendMeAnAngel3: Carlin was very stern on environmental protection. He prominently expressed
that mankind has freaked up the earth and its environment.
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
Steve Davison: In a word - brilliant.
kingrider75: What I'm baffled by is you people actin like Goerge freaking Carlin was a
born again Socrates lol!!! Give me a break.
John Horan: Look up U.N.use of climate change to destroy capitalism. They have freaked
up the money system so bad,they gave to blame capitalism as bad to cover
for their theft.They will tax you to death, to give money to the masses ,so
the masses don't catch on and string these bastards from trees.
MrEricStarr: he is right the planet will be her for a long time after us he is saying
the planet is trying to get rid of all us and it is doing it
Robin Loebel: The whole idea here is that we are asinine enough as a species that we
could ever do anything about climate in the first place. His message is to
have a great time because we have so little influence in the whole immense
system we live in. We all die, so stop worrying!
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.
razzle nipper: Bring back the aerosol can before my nuts shrivel up!
It's well below freezing outside and in the past three weeks we've got six
feet of snow.
takkievandestreets: Funny, the comment section here. All of you typo hero's ur saving the world
by commenting here ? Don't care if you agree or disagree it's just proofing
his point. Love it
silverking050: Lol at people debating climate change in the comments section of a George
Carlin video. Also, lol at George Carlin for saying that just as many
species of animals would die with or without humans.
Mike Hunt: RIP , Sure miss you George.
pagansforbreakfast: Cuythulu and Benzene are two of the "pretentious white liberal
environmentalist freaks" that Mr. Carlin was talking about.
David Kingsbury: Nailed it.
jbrin: Bit of a trollfest in here....
toni jay: well..there is no debate that natural occurrences will wipe out all human
life many times before the sun explodes...if that makes you all feel
