George Carlin (1937-2008) was an American stand-up comedian, social critic, satirist, actor and writer/author, who won five Grammy Awards for his comedy albums. He was noted for his black humor as well as his thoughts on politics, the English language, psychology, religion, and various "taboo" subjects.
Goerge Carlin explains how we are not trying to save the planet, but trying to save ourselves. I have a theory that humans have an innate genetic wiring to feel guilty. In christianity we feel guilty about eating an apple in paradise, or having Jesus die for us. Now it is guilt because our parents polluted earth.
