The arrogant self-importance of saving the planet

George Carlin nailed it many years ago when he ripped smug environmentalists for wanting to save the planet. The planet, Carlin said is fine; it's human that are screwed up.

Then he noted that the Earth is 4.5 billion years old, and in that time has survived much more than us arrogant little humans can throw at it. Watch it below. It's one of Carlin's best routines.

And if you're a smug, arrogant environmentalist, cringe and fume and stomp your feet.

Independent Journalism

I've been a reporter, writer and editor for 37 years. I'm dedicated to honest, fair and hard-hitting reporting. I'm not conservative or liberal, but am just a reporter who tries to get to the truth at any given point in time. I don't believe in pulling punches or being a lap dog because that serves no one. A free and aggressive press is essential to human liberty. That's why the Founding Fathers put a free press in the Constitution. So on this site you'll get a variety of news, fearless opinion, analysis, humor, satire and commentary. It's kind of like a free-for-all. My motto is "Without fear and without favor."  But good journalism takes time and money, so I hope you will contribute what you can to these efforts by clicking on the "Donate" button above. I could use your help. Thanks, Dennis Domrzalski.
