Jonathan Kesselman: What have you done this year to be more environmentally responsible?
>> Well, I have a recycling bin and I recycle.
>> I switched all my light bulbs to like, you know, the energy saving light bulbs.
>> Picked up garbage and stuff along the road.
Kesselman: What things have you done to be responsible with the environment?
>> [indistinct foreign language]
Kesselman: What’s that?
>> [indistinct foreign language]
Kesselman: What have you done this year to be more environmentally responsible?
>> Umm…nothing.
>> Recycle.
Kesselman: Hmm mm.
>> Reduce. Reuse.
Kesselman: The R’s, right. Okay.
>> Yeah, the R’s.
Kesselman: And?
>> Tons of things. Tons of things.
Kesselman: Such as?
>> Such, I don’t know.
>> Volunteer work, like this for example.
Kesselman: This is just putting money in. This is not really helping the environment though, is it?
>> Well, it’s like helping people to stay off the street and not be homeless.
Kesselman: That’s a great cause but I’m talking about the environment. If the world explodes, and we get a fiery fireball death, I mean, we’re all homeless basically if we were dead.
>> Yeah, that’s true.
Kesselman: So I mean, what else have you done?
>> Not much, I guess.
Kesselman: So basically you just bought a hybrid car, and that’s like, I’m good, I’m done.
>> Yeah.
Kesselman: I use energy efficient light bulbs. I unplug my cell phone charger. I do two things. And you do one. And so, that makes me better than you and um, sorry. Thank you for hurting the planet.
>> I’m not trying to.
Kesselman: Apparently, people in Tokyo don’t care. I don’t want to generalize, but.
>> Maybe it’s just me.
Kesselman: You’re not really a good citizen of the planet earth, are you?
>> No, I guess not.
Kesselman: Go kill the planet. Go kill the planet.
>> What I can say?
Kesselman: You know, what can you say? I mean, I don’t want to come off as angry, but [indistinct]
>> I don’t know what are you saying.
Kesselman: That’s Hindi. You don’t speak Hindi properly. My dialect is from the south.
>> [indistinct]
Kesselman: All right. Take care. Good luck.
