wow....its really been almost 7 yrs and yet BIG POLLUTION companies still pollute, CO2 levels still are rising....
I won't give up....hope none of you do either....
I know she was worried about the Antarctica performance. The show ended up being a group of scientists performing their own tunes from the research station in -15 degrees. No harm done.
Of course, there needs to be laws. But we the people are the ones who make the laws by electing politicians. That's the nature of the Constitution. We need to elect responsible law-makers and then we need to remind them who they're working for.
I think we will look back on this event and see it as a real push in momentum for our mission in the battle against global warming and pollution of the environment. Never before have so many people come together for the environment. It was the biggest music event in history, but it was also the biggest environmental event in history. The young viewers will never forget some of the messages. While the event won't change our society over-night, especially older people set in their ways, Live Earth was a wonderful small step in the right direction.
Kudos to all of the awesome short-film makers who educated the audience with so many important facts.
Kudos to the band AFI for mentioning their vegetarianism and veganism.
Kudos to Melissa Etheridge for her Al Gore salute and for bringing to tears to our eyes during her passionate performance.
Kudos to all of the bands and musicians and celebrities who took part. This really will matter to the young generation.
Kudos to Al Gore for his persistence in getting this message out to everyone.
Enter your name and look for it on screen during Live Earth!
Soren, good point about Chevy. I'd like to say maybe they're having a change of heart, but I'll have to see it first. Most of the other sponsors are reasonably responsible. In between sets and songs, there are tons of cool education bits, even for the well-educated. Check out the short films section of the website.
“We are going to ask the two billion people estimated to be in the audience Saturday to take a seven-point pledge that is designed to change behavior and also to put pressure on political leaders in every country across the ideological spectrum,” Gore said. “We really have to solve this.”
Although all the major candidates in both the Republican and Democratic parties have expressed concerns about global warming, Gore said climate change must rank high on the next president’s list of priorities.
“It’s 500 days off,” Gore said of the Democrats’ convention. “If I do my job, then all of them will make this their top issue. None of them have yet.”

There's a shortage of water, also caused by global warming, so watering the desert is out of the question. You're getting way out there.
