Live Earth

I will be at a Live Earth watching party tonight. I am interested in the pre-concert candidate questionnaire time, too. If I remember, I will post some impressions later tonight.

That said, I am a bit ambivalent about such things. How well do all the rock groups involved practice what they preach, or sing, on global warming? If they don’t, how much of a backlash does it produce? Even if they do, are ordinary people skeptical that they can’t afford to do this?

I say this in part because Gore, bless his work, is precisely this type of target.

I don’t claim to have the answers for any of these rhetorical questions, I just know that they’re out there.
