No One Loves the Earth Like Oil Companies: Stephen Colbert on Offshore Oil Drilling

With the lapsing of the moratorium on offshore oil drilling last week, I entered a self-reflective mode and wondered what we in the environmental movement could have done better to get across the point that the only people who would really benefit from expanded drilling are the oil companies themselves. Well, Stephen Colbert’s assessment of the situation doesn’t get us any closer to answering that question but is undeniably funnier than what I wrote. Apparently I had judged the sitaution entirely incorrectly. Apologies to anyone viewing this in places where Comedy Central doesn’t let you watch online clips...Everyone else, enjoy.
