"That's why I don't do much activism. Cuts into my partying."
"You should have seen me before I quit Greenpeace. And the Sierra Club.

Okay, children, settle in and let me tell you about these people who used to be called "hippies." See, a long time ago, there was this thing called the Industrial Revolution, and it turned our world into the gas-guzzling, greenhouse gas-emitting society we are today. And nobody cared about the environment. Al Gore wasn't around yet to explain about inconvenient truths. But then one day, these patchouli-loving, tie-dye wearing, long-haired freaks came along, and they started talking about global warming and Mother Earth and thinking globally and acting locally, and they got beaten up a lot. And then they all grew up and got real jobs and had 2.3 kids and bought SUVs, but they still feel really guilty about killing the environment, so they dutifully send their checks once a year to organizations like Greenpeace and the Sierra Club that work for conservation of our planet. Isn't that nice of them? Okay, bedtime, children. Try not to have nightmares about the polar ice caps melting and drowning us all. Just think happy thoughts about soulful teenage boys like Bronson Pope devoting their lives to saving all the little plants and animals. Sleep well!
