well aparently al gore wants to do a concert similar to live aid, but instead of doing concerts around the world for starving africa kids, its global warming. Apparently he wants to do the first concert in Antartica. The above linke says all, and which bands are signed on.

discuss.

By doing that, wouldnt he just be contributing to the problem?

Exactly.
I doubt he'll have a concert in Antarctica, but arranging such a humongous event probably isn't the most environment friendly thing to do.

al gore for president in '08.


how can you raise money for global warming? what are they gonna do, get a bunch of money and then bribe the sun?

i always though if there was a band that became the first to play in antartica, it would be some Scandanavian metal band. According to the description it should be something along the lines of Snoop dog or snow patrol.

edit: and he isn't raising any money. Its only to raise awareness.

Research?
Developing something to stop global warming?

I think that would be obvious.

it would be amusing and misfortunate if gore has to kill some penguins to make room for the stage and equipment and such.

Good initiative, but it's gonna be wasted on humungous publicity stunts and crappy music.
According to BS statistics, 92% of teens have moved on to rap. If you're among the 8% who doesn't consider rap to be real music, donate your brains, as you clearly aren't using them.

Could you imagine keeping your hands warm to play the guitar down there??
I have a hard enough time keeping mine warm, and they aren't at sub-zero temps...

the other concerts are a definite, but the antartic one is still in the planing stages. But as for the cold issues, on peninulas outside the artic circle, it will be around 40-45 degrees in summer, (january). And that should be when the concert is gonna be held.

Who would go to Antarctica to see a concert? As I recall, it's too cold there to be inhabited.
