Am I the only one who thinks that this the most hypocritical event ever. I heard this morning that Madona had hired her own personal jet to get her there http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/live/a ... ge_id=1773 Yes I know it's a Daily Mail story but . . . .

    Of course it is... it's an absolute complete stinking vanity project.

    Now I guess I'll have to tell 'em
    That I got no cerebellum

    Have a look at who's sponsoring the Online Coverage

    http://liveearth.msn.com/

    I nearly p*ssed my pants when I saw that!

    Another thing, I've decided that any bands that I like who are playing at this w*nkfest will be removed from my record collection forthwith.
    So with regret goodbye Foos! Goodbye Kasabian!

    No - and I do not claim to be particuarly green either. I probably fly 4-5 times per year and my cars are not exactly frugal - but then I am not making hypocritical claims to be trying to save the planet.

  • are they all going to be standing in a line with their arms in the air waving them from side to side singing climate-change based hymns or are they just going to be playing their normal tracks?
    'cos if it's the former, I don't know why anybody would bother going to watch it. But if it's the latter, then I don't see what it has to do with climate change...
    I think at the end of the day, it's just another way for organisations to make money off the back of the climate change bandwagon.

    When the luvvies get passionate about a political issue it's time to really question it.

    for that other well known eco-warrior and (ex?) keen follower of the TdF, Sheryl Crow's contribution to the environment.

    "Additionally, when the global warming warrior hits the road, her touring entourage (and equipment) travels in three tractor trailers, four buses, and six cars." :roll:

    That'd be the Ms Crow with the strange ideas about toilet paper & global warning then:

    (Which was apparently, "a joke"

    I also found the sponsor hilarious!
    It strikes me that Live Earth is seen as a fantastic opportunity to make money rather than address issues...
