About the author

Matt is the author, co-author, secondary-author, ghost-author, and non-author of articles, speeches, book chapters, and even entire books! The most recent is his blockbuster The Accidental Activist, which Amazon claims is by his wife Anne Green. So it goes. Currently, he is President of One Step for Animals; previously, he was shitcanned from so many nonprofits that we can’t list them all here. Before Matt’s unfortunate encounter with activism, he was an aerospace engineer who wanted to work for NASA (to impress Carl Sagan). His hobbies include photography, almost dying, and {REDACTED}. He lives in Tucson with Anne, along with no dogs, no cats, no guinea pigs, and only the occasional snake or scorpion.

George Carlin & Me & "Save the Planet"

Back when I worked on the college paper, probably sometime between 1989 and 1991, I wrote the first piece that would go on to be Equitable Ethics vs. Easy Environmentalism: The Essence of Earth Day.

A friend mentioned this bit by George Carlin from 1992 which makes the same points.
