I somehow managed to avoid yesterdays “Live Earth” concerts (I shall have to put the fuse back in the TV plug when the kids take the dog for a walk) but could I do the same when it came to the papers coverage. Oh God, second page into the Times and there it is, a two page review and an unhealthily large picture of Phil Collins pretending to be a relevant rock star. But what is that tucked away in the corner? Halleluiah! A sarcastic article to rip the whole sorry affair apart. Thank God for John Paul Flintoff, who lays his views out in the form of a biblical revelation and has managed to give the topic some mirth, some brevity and thankfully some truth. I’m not one for reproducing full sections of other people’s works, so give it a perusal yourselves; It’s well worth a read.
To finish of the “Live Earth” debate, here are a couple of interesting facts.
Madonna has a carbon footprint 40 times greater than the average Britain, yet wants us all to wear more jumpers in the winter.
The carbon output of the full concert scenario is expected to be 31500 tons.
Say no more!
