Environmental activists led by former US Vice President Al Gore announced plans yesterday for a 24-hour pop concert across seven continents in July to mobilize action to stop global warming.
The “Live Earth” concerts will be taking place on July 7th and will bring together more than 100 of the world’s top musical acts. The names of the performers haven’t been announced yet though.
The idea of the concerts and a new campaign under the name Save Our Selves (SOS) is to try and reach a global audience of around 2 billion people, through concert attendance, radio, television and Internet broadcasts, in order to raise awareness and mobilize people all over the world to take action.
I think it’s really good to have these kinds of events to raise awareness on very important issues like this, I just hope people all over the world start to realize how much is at stake and try to take actions to solve the problem.
More respect for Al Gore who is throwing all his weight behind environmental issues and global warming.
