I'd have to watch it again, but I believe that of the various aspects of environmentalism he touched on, he didn't specifically belittle climate change.

He's wrong about extinctions. The "natural" rate of extinctions is a barely discernible crackle of background noise in the cascade of human-caused extinctions. And while he's right to lampoon bourgeois "environmentalism," he commits the very same offense that they're guilty of by asserting that we should simply let "nature" take its course.

Plus he's a misanthrope. He should cheer up a bit. Do him good. But then of course he wouldn't be half as funny.

Always been a Carlin fan. . .

Carlin is hillarious. He does another piece that I think it much more spot on than this one, about democracy in America.
