Video Vs. Sanity: Stephen Colbert’s Environmental Greatest Hits
Thinking of attending next weekend’s rally in Washington DC, Stephen Colbert’s March to Keep Fear Alive?
Here’s a little preview of what you might be able to expect – a Colbert Report greatest hits montage on the environment.
On the Cape Wind offshore windfarm:
“What if it breaks and we have a catastrophic wind spill? The last time that happened we almost lost New Orleans”
On climate change:
“Now I know why I haven’t paid any attention to this global warming fad. It makes horrible television!”
“A lot of people talk about loving the Earth. But how many of them actually penetrate?”
On forest policy:
“Only you can prevent forest fires — by getting rid of forests.”
