Live Earth and Global Warming

Somewhere on TV today, there are rock bands playing in the Live Earth concerts around the globe. This is the concert where rock bands unite to save the planet from the Silver Surfer. No, wait; that is the movie Fantastic Four. These concerts are to raise awareness that evil humans are threatening the planet by using energy. Much like the energy being used by the rock bands today performing their concerts, broadcasting their concerts, and by the fans traveling to the concerts and watching the concerts on TV. But the latter things are good use of energy, whereas when we travel to work, drop the kids off at school, or use the air conditioner, that is the evil use of energy. Kind of like the Force in Star Wars. There is good and bad. Al Gore and the rock stars have the important job of distinguishing between the two. I think. They seem to have concluded that whatever you do is bad; while whatever they do is good.

Remember when rock stars used to be about the music? They were anti-conformist and anti-establishment. When did the mantra of "sex, drugs and rock and roll" get replaced with "global warming and rock the vote?" It all seems a bit backwards to me.

I suppose I could give my view on global warming here. But instead, go to Google or Yahoo and search for all views. You may be surprised at what you find. Al Gore said "The debate is over." Quite an unscientific statement, don't you think? Check out all views and see if you agree.
