World celebrities sing to stop global warming (AFP) 10 hours ago GENEVA British rock group Duran Duran and heavy metal band Scorpions are among 55 world celebrities who have joined in recording a song to draw attention to the global warming crisis, organisers said on Monday. The song is part of a mass media campaign on the threats of climate change organised by the Geneva-based Global Humanitarian Forum, headed by former UN secretary general Kofi Annan. The song entitled "Beds'r Burning", which was originally recorded by the Australian group Midnight Oil in the 1980s, can be downloaded from the Internet for free and will be presented to the public at a launch in Paris on October 1. "If we do not stop the (greenhouse gas) emissions today, global warming will be still be with us in 40 to 50 years," warned Walter Fust, director of the Forum, at a press conference in Geneva. The media campaign featuring the song is aimed at putting pressure on world leaders to reach an agreement on tackling climate change at a UN-sponsored conference in Copenhagen in December. Some of the other popular artists who add their voices to the anti-global warming song include French 'Piaf' actress Marion Cotillard, Senegalese star Youssou N'dour, Irish singer/composer Bob Geldorf, Chinese singer Khalil Fong, and even a Nobel peace laureate, South African archbishop Desmond Tutu.

Global Warming caused by singing!
That should make them feel better.
Unfortunately it does nothing about curing the flu.
Personally, I think the chicken dance with squirrel entrails is more effective, but no harm in trying ?
Think of how much hot air will be generated by that .....
I hope it works. It’s our only chance!
Duran Duran has been now moron bait.
8 miles high.
“If we do not stop the (greenhouse gas) emissions today, global warming will still be with us in 40 to 50 years,” warned Walter Fust, director of the Forum, at a press conference in Geneva.
WTF? Are these people serious? I don’t even understand that quote.
That’s because these folks’ brain cells are so burned out, they couldn’t formulate a coherent sentence if they tried. :D
Singing. Yeah, that oughta do it. I wonder if the “celebritards” could do some singing and stop the Islamofascists from being a bunch of backwards, stupid, cruel, barbaric A-holes and murderous thugs and women haters?
Think that’ll work?
They should do an entire album.
Add in the following:
Springsteen’s - I’m on Fire
The Trammps - Disco Inferno
Foreigner - Hot BLooded
Peggy Lee - You give Me Fever
Blue Oyster Cult - I’m Burning for You
ABBA - SOS
Beach Boys - Warmth of the Sun
Wont get their hands dirty or break a sweat with the sick, dying, diseased, soup kitchens but will sing from yon mountain top about how us low lifes have to stop living like them and do our part to ‘cure’ ‘global warming’.
I’m sure Mother Gaia will be pleased. Next week, virgin sacrifices at your neighborhood temple.
This thread needs more cowbell!
No kidding. Have you ever heard Sean Penn try to talk w/o a script or teleprompter?
Jamming corks down their throats would be more effective. / sarc!
And eliminate a lot of secondary emissions too. / SARC!
Well damn, now he's about to cure global warming by putting on yet another shingdig of a concert. It's a bloody crime they haven't given him the Nobel Peace Prize yet. A bloody crime I tell you.
