George Carlin:
The greatest arrongance of all: Save the planet.

What? Are these fuckin' people kidding me? Save the planet? We don't even know how to take care of ourselves yet. We gotta learn how to care for one another, we're gonna save the fuckin' planet? There is nothing wrong with the planet.

Nothing wrong with the planet.

The planet is fine.

The people are fucked.


Naghmeh Zand:
What the artist in his monologue is trying to say is that there is no possible way for a group of individuals, in this case people, descibing human kind, to avoid or escape a given situation, here, death or extinction. He sums it up by using a four letter word, which, after all, gives the statement much more clarity and impact because, let's face it, the people are fucked.


George Carlin:
The planet has been through a lot worse than us.

…been though earthquakes, volcanos, plate techtonics, continental drifts, solar flares, sun spots, magnetic storms, the magnetic reversal of the poles, hundreds of thousands of years of bombardment by comets and asteroids and meteors, worldwide floods, tidal waves, worldwide fires, erosion, cosmic rays, recurring ice ages and we think some plastic bags and some aluminum cans are going to make a difference? The planet isn't going anywhere.
We are.
Pack your shit folks.
And we won't leave much of a trace either. Thank god for that.
The planet will be here and we'll be long gone.
Just another failed mutation.
Just another closed end biological mistake.
An evolutionary col de sac.
