Live Earth is coming, 07/07/2007

Uber-concert Live Earth, which aims to raise awareness of global warming and the environment, will be filling Wembley this weekend.

For Live Aid I cycled down to Hyde Park to soak up the vibe and it was, despite the concerns of naysayers, totally amazing. I pride myself on my healthy cynicism, but being surrounded by the music and people of that event was genuinely moving.

There’s no way in hell I’d cycle my ass over to Wembley, and I doubt I’ll get that vibe out of the boob tube, so here’s my top tip. Go to your local pub — if you have one where some crusties/hippies/yuppies hang out, all the better. Watch it on TV, get a bit drunk and swear that all your appliances will be AA rated from now on.

(Strange web site though — sponsored by Chevy?!?)

Inspired by Al Gore and co, (Al Gore, doesn’t he look like middle-aged Superman? Mmmm, middle-aged Superman.) tomorrow I will be sharing my top lazy environmentalist’s enviro tips.
