I don’t normally go into discussion on Global Warming, but I think that this may be a day to make an exception. As you may already know, today marks the Global Warming-awareness concerts. They are called “Live Earth” – and are being spearheaded by the all powerful and knowing Al Gore. There is only one problem – the concerts serve absolutely no purpose. The promote no solution to global climate change, present no new evidence to convince skeptics, and are in themselves hypocritical because of the high amount of energy and emissions that are required to hold the events. It would be one thing if these events were being held in support of some kind of solution, say the use of some new, efficient kind of fuel, but they are not. Instead, these concerts are simply part of the “green is cool” fad that uses scare tactics and misinformation to “alert” people to a “problem” that there is still serious debate over in the scientific community. I think science is best left to scientists and rock music to rockers.
