Live Earth: Biggest Media Event Ever
Al Gore's Live Earth concerts to raise awareness about climate change will be "the biggest global media event of all time." Personally I have the same initial thoughts as Live Aid / Live 8 organizer Bob Geldof: "I hope they're a success. But why is he [Gore] actually organising them? To make us aware of the greenhouse effect? Everybody's known about that for years. We are all fucking conscious of global warming."
