I suppose that some environmentalists might be offended by George Carlin's YouTube rant, presented here. He's right, though, that human efforts to "save the planet" seem to imply that Nature depends on us.
In fact, quite the opposite is true!

#119 / Saving The Planet

As an environmentalist for 40 of my 67 years, I got the same take home message that you state in your comment, Gary. That is, the planet will abide. At that I took no offense; he is right.ReplyDelete
Initially I cringed when he seemed to mock saving whales or other critters and mentioned all the species that were extinct before humans began their intense spread worldwide100,000 years ago. Carlin said a mouthful but it does not dissuade me from continuing my activism. Not a bit!
I have always been humbled, as a human on this lovely planet in an infinite universe. However, humility does not paralyze and so I continue (conservative that I am) to care and to work to save nature, however and wherever I can.
