The man who invented the Internet has done it again! Why the Goreacle hasn't been given a Nobel Prize baffles me.

The Goreacle is going to organize a concert called (Wait for it!): Live Earth! It's a concert to raise awareness about Global Warming. Oh, and get money to a Foundation called The Alliance for Climate Protection. And, oh yeah!, Al Gore is the chairman! What a coincidence!

Let's see if I understand how this is going to work: there will be concerts on all continents. Each continent will use enough power to light a small city for several days. It will cram thousands of people together, and sell them food and drinks with large carbon footprints. All to let us know how we're destroying the Earth.

Sir Bob Geldof is angry. "Live Earth doesn’t have a final goal," the organizer of the first world wide concert, Live Aid, said. "Why is he actually organizing [the concerts]? To make us aware of the greenhouse effect? Everybody’s known about that problem for years. We are all fucking conscious of global warming." He also upset that the name sounds like his concert, Live8.

Don't be jealous, Sir Bob. That's just the Goreacle innovating again.

I wonder if the Goreacle will pull a Phil Collins: Appear at one concert on one continent, then fly on his private jet to another continent to close that show. Wouldn't that be innovative?

Here's an idea, Al. Have one concert powered by renewable sources. Broadcast it to all continents. Think how much CO2 you'll be saving!

But I forgot: What you do and endorse has no effect on the planet. What we do destroys it.
