Radiohead on Colbert Talk Global Warming: It's About the Money from Big Oil

Last night British rock band Radiohead--arguably one of the most respected and beloved bands out there right now--took a full hour on the Colbert Report. It was a lively mix of politics and music.

Here are band members Thom Yorke and Ed O'Brien talking with Stephen Colbert about the issue of global warming, which the band has been active in opposing.

Their take? American politicians' contributions from oil companies are preventing them from seeing the light on the imminent perils posed by climate change.

It's quite hilarious to watch the ironic, deadpan British rockers face off against the bloviating fake American host.
