Happy Earth Day (Plus 40)!

What better way to celebrate Earth Day's 40th anniversary than to listen to the late, great George Carlin, who really understands the resilience of the Earth and how man is dwarfed by the planet.

Crystal Clear Conservative has also posted this video and comments:
Earth Day has taken many twists and turns over the years. Now, thanks to the advent of “An Inconvenient Truth” and a degree of hyper-environmentalism, we are faced with a new slogan “Recycle or die” or Cap and Trade legislation, which would regulate industries that produce clean energy. Earth Day is no longer about promoting conservation within reason....

George Carlin says it best time and again as evidenced in this clip.
We lost not just a wit and an entertainer when George Carlin passed away (shortly after being named the recipient of the Kennedy Center's Mark Twain Prize for American Humor), but an intelligent, plain-speaking social philosopher who was not afraid to take on the sacred cows of both left and right.
