Matt Bellamy, front man of the rock band Muse, has dubbed it 'private jets for climate change'.

That's brilliant.

stars will be ferried between the stage and dressing room by energy-efficient Smart Cars and biodiesel fuelled Mercedes.

Because they can’t walk?

A spokesperson for Live Earth says: “This might involve buying environmentally sound lightbulbs for a Third World school, planting trees, or installing solar panels in a developing country.”

Better to foist your stupid nonsense on the Third World which struggles to feed its people rather than put it in your own house.

Tomorrow I am going to mow the lawn, run the dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, use the lawn trimmer, eat navy, kidney and refried beans, take a long hot shower, and try to imitate the giant carbon footprint the heroic minstrels and court jesters will generate at these events.

Madonna alone has an annual carbon footprint of 1,018 tonnes, according to John Buckley. Remember, the average Briton produces just ten tonnes.

Yes, but that's why they're average and Madonna is...special.

Ok, you cannot use “mastermind” and “Al Gore” in the same sentence.
Personally I’m doing all I can to take this planet with me when I go.
If you want to join, try composting - the methane-farts from the earthworms in you your compost pile really zap the ozone-layer.

Algore will just buy their carbon footprint for them. Problem solved.

Slave labor carrying sedan chairs would be more “green” if not PC (unless you are in the muslim world).

I have never seen anyone spend money to get the vote like Gore. He is so full of shit just like Edwards who cant go anywhere without getting a 1200 dollar hair cut and it SUCKS! I could have had the same hair cut for 12 bucks and I would have looked better.

Carbon offsetting involves 'neutralising' the emissions you are responsible for by buying 'credits'.

A spokesperson for Live Earth says: "This might involve buying environmentally sound lightbulbs for a Third World school, planting trees, or installing solar panels in a developing country."

The key words here is " might involve buying"

Has anyone actually looked into where (besides Gore's bank account) all the money has gone??

Have they actually purchased any lightbulbs for Third World schools, planted any trees, or installed solar panels ????

Mo1:

Do they have LIGHTS in some of those 3rd World schools?

planted any trees,

I think I’ll plant a tree in the name of Bon Jovi’s private Jet in Zaire. I think the suffering people of Zaire would feel better about it. (Of course the tree won’t give them a better life)

installed solar panels

I wanted to put a windmill off CAPE COD but it would interfere with sailboats and the view. I guess I’ll have to put solar panel on a hut in Uganda, maybe I’ll do it in the name of Madonna. I bet then if you put a solar panel on a hut there — will the family’s life improve?
