Here comes... LIVE EARTH
I'm getting excited about LIVE EARTH a 24 hour music festival which starts tomorrow. LIVE EARTH will bring together more than 150 music artists and 2 billion people to inspire a global movement to "Answer the Call" and combat the climate crisis. Earlier this year while in South Africa I was surprised to learn how much serious harm to life this crisis has already caused -- famine, violence, and drought are just a few examples. Efforts like LIVE EARTH will hopefully put this issue higher on our list of priorities.
On a related but slightly lighter note, last week after a hike in Marin we listened to a funny story on NPR about one of the bands that will be performing as part of LIVE EARTH on the continent of Antarctica. Here's the story.
