Folks, if you really want to get people to abandon their wasteful ways and embrace a greener lifestyle, you’ve got to get ‘em while they’re young. As a child I remember watching all the kid-oriented Earth Day programming with rapt attention. I even watched Captain Planet—and Captain Planet was not a good show.
That’s the lesson we should all take away from Lewis Black’s “Back in Black” segment on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Kids’ minds are like empty, pristine buckets just waiting to be filled with knowledge, compassion, and—if you want to get really ambitious—human poop.
