Colbert: Nissan Leaf drivers looking for hand gesture, friends in Houston

Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert took on the Friendly Fracosaurus, which is now slated for extinction.

Now, he has set his eyes on Nissan’s ploy to create a friendly hand gesture for Leaf drivers to acknowledge each other by. However, a Nissan Leaf driver from Houston said it’s tough to acknowledge someone…if nobody drives a Leaf in the city. However, there is at least one in Houston after a Clear Lake family purchased the first Leaf in Texas.

Here’s the clip:

Colbert didn’t stop there.

He tackled his favorite gas on the periodical table — helium, which is in short supply.

Helium might not have the same ring as carbon or iron in the energy industry, but it’s running out. The Federal Helium Reserve says the helium, which is found in the Texas panhandle, supply will be depleted by 2020, and the gas is not renewable. Once it is gone, it’s gone.

Here’s what Colbert had to say about it.
