The true impact of Live Earth:
John Buckley of Carbon Footprint, an organization that helps companies reduce their carbon dioxide emissions, said Saturday that Live Earth will produce about 74,500 tons of the gas.
“We would have to plant 100,000 trees to offset the effect of Live Earth,” he said, speaking by telephone.
It’s almost as though these people are in an alternate universe, one in which sincerity replaces activity to create reality. It doesn’t matter that Madonna uses 90 times more carbon in a year than you or me as long as she’s sincere about telling us to recycle.
Feh. At least the people who participated in the local Live Earth festivities here in Columbia are likely to practice what they preach.
