But why is he [Gore] actually organising them? To make us aware of the greenhouse effect? Everybody's known about that for years. We are all fucking conscious of global warming.'—Bob Geldof, Organiser of Live Aid and Live8
So just why did Al Gore organize a world-wide event spanning seven continents and featured performances at nine climate change locations, with more than 100 of the biggest names in music, at cities in Australia, Germany, China, Japan, South Africa, England, Brazil and the United States?
Live Earth - the biggest musical event ever and a creation of former Vice President Al Gore, who got a standing ovation when he thanked the stadium audience for helping "launch this global effort" - was meant to call attention to the planet's "climate in crisis."
"I'm here to, you know, save the Earth, one beer at a time," – Zoe Delohery, a Live Earth Concert AttendeeGore’s multi-continental was meant to rise awareness concerning polluting the Earth yet The Rock stars that Gore utilized didn’t mind at all polluting the event with foul language. It was like, “Clean up the F’ing Planet damn it!” (Makes a good slogan don’t you think?)
According to Mike Collett-White, of Reuters Canada, Al Gore’s concerts were designed to “ pressure leaders to sign a new[Kyoto like] treaty by 2009 that would cut global warming pollution by 90 percent in rich nations and more than half worldwide by 2050.
So what’s wrong with Al Gore attempting to affect world politics and policies through mass group indoctrination?
Big business has been lobbying Congress for years manipulating policies and affecting U.S. laws. The Bush-Kennedy Immigrant law is just a recent and more blatant example of this type of activity.
Gore and his partners hope to achieve a kind of Mass Social conditioning through his world-wide Live Earth concerts. Which purpose is intended to drive a global demand for legislation and Global policies for regulating carbon emissions. If that happens Gore stands to profit handsomely by selling carbon credits. He already has a company set up for this propose.
How many people have been taken in by Gore’s Inconvenient Global scheme? We know movie and music stars looking for the next big social movement have been suckered in. Leonardo DiCaprio to Madonna have lent their pop prestige to the Gore Global deception.
After counting what carbon impact his concert had on Global warming Mr. Gore will be asking you to reduce your carbon output by 90% The only way to do that is to turn-in your newly bought i-phone, disconnect from the electricity grid and buy a Totoya Prius to live in.
Al Gore’s Global warming movement has remade the progressive movement into a regressive anti-modernity movement of which the Unabomber, Theodore Kaczynski, would have been proud to be a part of. Dr. Kaczynski’s manifesto, Industrial Society and Its Future, warned of the dangers of modern technology much like Gore’s book, An Inconvenient Truth warns about the dangers of industrial and private carbon emissions.
The only difference between these two sociopaths is that Gore’s efforts are purely for his own profit. Dr. Kaczynski on the other hand was really concerned about the environment.
Musicians including Bob Geldof, Roger Daltrey and the Pet Shop Boys pointed out that a concert highlighting climate change had itself generated huge carbon emissions.
Matt Bellamy, front man of the rock band Muse, called the event "private jets for climate change." Rock band Ra diohead refused to even appear.
Among the excesses were private jets used to fly performers to far- flung places like Johannesburg, where glitterati like Joss Stone and UB40 played.
London's Wembley Stadium had headliners like Madonna, whose jet-setting, multi-home lifestyle produces more greenhouse gases annually than 14,000 people in Malawi, the African home of her son.
The New Jersey event alone churned out tons of greenhouse gases and created truckloads of trash.
After the shows are over, the Daily Mail estimates that there will be about 1,025 tons of garbage left - which will probably end up in landfills. --GINGER ADAMS OTIS, NYPOST.COM
Since the 2000 elections celebrities have been attempting use their fame to influence public elections and policy. Barbara Streisand and Ben Affleck are two that come immediately to mind.
Finally it remains to be seen if Mr. Gore’s Global efforts will change the world for his good and the good of his company. We will see if Live Earth will be the group social brainwashing that Mr. Gore wanted or just a huge need for Global clean-up after the party!
