Almost every practicing climate scientist on the planet has made it clear: the world is warming (i.e., heating up) and human activities are the reason. Almost every if not every national science academy has backed up this point. Popular scientific experts like Bill Nye “The Science Guy” and Neil deGrasse Tyson have done the same thing. Now, Republican
Money has far too much influence over politics and society for the common man’s good. And when it comes to money, Wall Street is king. So, when a certain (former) contract law professor at Harvard University comes after Wall Street’s nearly untouchable power on behalf of the common man and woman, you know that Wall Street doesn’t
This is pretty awesome. Of course, it’s fun to watch dogs driving cars, but it’s also cool because the purpose of this dog driving course, conducted by a charity in New Zealand, is to get more people comfortable with the idea that rescue dogs are intelligent, can be trained, and are worthy of adoption. I
There are a lot of great Bill Maher clips out there. He’s great at not only writing funny jokes, but also pull out amazing facts and stats to highlight. Watch this video below, share it, and check out & share the text facts shared again below the video. http://youtu.be/pcKMd49wDRk The 85 richest people own more
There’s no denying it: Republicans kick Democrats’ asses when it comes to messaging. But things may be getting a bit better. Check out this Bill Maher clip for some tips and some history on political messaging: http://youtu.be/3TCxRc5vdq0 Now, let’s invade the sun and takes its oil! via Peter Sinclair
This is hilarious. Not much more to say. Just watch:
Originally published on Solar Love. This isn’t a new commercial, but I ran across it recently and had to share again. It’s so funny and so well done. And it does nail the #1 reason why people go solar. Check it out: http://youtu.be/zYBfAW0fGNc
Holland — one of my favorite places in the world. More info in this Bikocity repost below. Below is a fun (& funny) video about Holland. Of course, biking is highlighted a bit. Biking makes life so much cooler, easier, more relaxed and carefree. It is used in (non-car) advertisements of all kinds simply to
Brand new viral video “After Ever After” from Paint just popped onto my radar. After two days, the video has almost 1.5 million views. I decided to check it out for basically two reasons: 1) I was curious what might be the next big, big thing (following Gangnam Style & Harlem Shake), and 2) the
Colbert, at it again, makes a good long joke out of climate change skepticism and American stupidity a bit following news of the Earth being at 400 ppm of carbon. Of course, as part of that, he also tackles the GOP’s very real efforts to address global warming and climate change… by attacking the
The Colbert Report Get More: Colbert Report Full Episodes,Political Humor & Satire Blog,Video Archive This is quite hilarious. Colbert had one of the best set-ups he could probably hope for from the president of the United Mine Workers Association, Cecil Roberts, who aptly compared the coal industry to a well-known killer. Of course,
Happy Easter! Here’s an adorable video of a cat and dolphins playing for you to enjoy. 😀

He is also a director, producer, writer, environmentalist, and (as Colbert puts) it “looks like everybody’s old boyfriend.” Um… must have been one of the self-educating, deep-thinking, philosophically-delving, right-action-seeking, and humanitarian old boyfriends. He is
Following up on Tom’s great post on Santorum’s global warming denial, Colbert has a great segment completely dogging him for his belief that ‘plants benefit from global warming’ — below the Colbert video, also checking out a great and funny debunking of this claim from Peter Sinclair. In addition to nailing Santorum for his
Copenhagenize, a tremendous bicycling blog based in… Copenhagen, recently posted four awesome bicycling videos (ads/commercials, basically). None of the videos are in English, but Copenhagenize’s Mikael Colville-Andersen took the time out of his day to translate them. They’re great advertisements for bicycling, I think, and most of them are just plain funny, too. So, here they
I want to start covering clean energy news much more here on Planetsave, but as they say, “so much to do, so little time.” Also, since we cover that extensively on sister site CleanTechnica, I just sort of assume you all can easily pop over there and subscribe to that page for news on this
Brad Pitt is a pretty green dude. But it was pretty surprising to see him go out of his way in this interview with Jon Stewart on The Daily Show to comment on the insanity of powering our vehicles with fossil fuels. It’s obviously something that’s really on his mind and gets him going. Check
This is a tremendous, awesome video from Will Potter of Green is the New Red. Potter is an expert on the FBI and its growing obsession with labeling activists (in particular, animal and environmental activists) terrorists—check it out: As Potter notes, “every activist should know shit the FBI says.” “Like the videos that started the trend,
Wow, Gingrich’s latest promise, that he would establish a permanent American base on the moon by the end of his second (no assumptions there) term as president is… um,.. insane. The really funny part* is at the end, when Stewart notes that he’s probably come up with this plan because he has “realized that the Earth
This is absolutely, insanely hilarious… and adorable. Not only that, I think it really shows the tremendous feeling of empowerment that comes from riding a bike… and not just the first time! 😀 Little Kid Gives Epic Speech After First Bike Ride – Amazing videos are here Kid’s got some spunk.
Too funny. 😀 http://youtu.be/E0OVxXUywbM
OK, which is cuter, these adorable little piglets playing with a dog (video below), or that rat and cat drinking milk together video that I posted 10 minutes ago? h/t Your Daily Dose of Vegan Outreach
The rat seems to be the one in charge 😀 http://youtu.be/IMDBu-_mRks Don’t go away, got another cute animal video coming up in a few minutes. 😀 h/t Your Daily Dose of Vegan Outreach
Here’s our cute animal video of the week: a tortoise helping another tortoise get on its fit after an apparent fall. Too cute! The song is “Lean on Me” being sung by Michael Bolton. (By the way, the original version of Lean on Me was sung by Bill Withers, one of my all-time favorite
Sorry, too cute not to share! 😀 At the very beginning of the video, of course, it looks like some cruel punks are letting a couple of lion cubs maul a dog. But, as you soon see, they are friends. As with other odd animal friendships like this, these animals were raised together. Goes to
Comedian Stephen Colbert takes on America’s indifference to global warming despite the mounting evidence that it is here and expected to get much, much worse, perhaps even making the U.S. South uninhabitable for humans… and perhaps even the whole world down the road. Here’s the video:
This is a pretty funny video by the folks over at Funny or Die. Check it out (if you don’t mind some ‘harsh language’):
Frank Luntz is, no doubt, good with words (and a little more than that). He holds his fair share of responsibility for the climate crisis we’re in, too, as he has helped the Republican Party avoid action on this critical topic through word games. (Note: he doesn’t like talking about that much these days.)
The uber-funny Stephen Colbert sat down with him recently to learn a trick or two. The resulting video is hilarious (while also a bit interesting). The funny thing is, Luntz seems to not get that Colbert’s job is to be ridiculous and funny while also poking fun at crazy Republicans. Not sure how he could not get that, or if he just gets irritated somewhat easily.
This is totally awesome. The ridiculousness of this guy getting a ticket for not riding in the bike lane is made obvious when he decides to then ALWAYS ride in the bike lane, film it, and show the world who should really be getting the tickets.
Here are two great videos I had to share. Translation of the message at the end of the one above is: “It’s smarter to travel in groups. Take the bus.”
