Live Earth Day

We’re destroying the planet. So how do we react to that news? Have a rock concert!

Apparently the counter argument is that it’s to ‘raise awareness’…

At the rate that global change is overtaking us the change in sea level, catastrophic weather modifications and other impacts it won’t soon be long before we don’t need a host of rock celebrities to make us aware of our environment. Although I do also wonder if we missed the chance to avoid the worst of what we’ve done some considerable time ago.

Based on the track record of events with the word ‘Live’ in them, I can’t see this having much effect. But it might help the destitute record industry sell the odd album.
