Arctic Monkey Endangerment!

Arctic Monkeys “shiver” at Live Earth Hypocrisy – Yahoo!

Oh no, whatever shall we do, some whingy British band is vying for attention and are lashing out at Live Earth! I’m sure we’re all just shaking in our footy pyjamas. Disappointing sales of there second album, the fact that nobody cares about them after their breakout and despite their massive popularity 15 minutes ago, I don’t remember ever hearing one of their songs. Like so much fireworks Arctic Monkeys have fizzled out. Stupid name and all. I believe they too Franz Fedinand with them.

But, whoa! what crap through yonder internet breaks?

Large parts of the band’s hometown of Sheffield were flooded at the end of last month after a deluge of mid-summer rain that some blamed on global warming. Two people were killed.

But the band wonder why anyone would be interested in the opinion of rock stars on a complex scientific issue like climate change.

Because scientists are boring as bat shit and nobody puts them on TV. Oh, and nobody respects them. But here, you have fans, people who love you music and that thing you do and would listen to you if you preached slapping grandmas for peace.

Bob Geldof, the architect of Live Aid and Live 8, the two biggest awareness-raising concerts in history, had a public spat with Al Gore about the need for the event.”Why is he (Gore) actually organising them?”

Because, numbnuts, some people still don’t get it. Some people are hopeless that there isn’t anything we can do. Some people don’t even believe in global warming.  Raising awareness isn’t just “hey, it’s here! look!” it’s also about what we can do for the situation. Remember?  the theory behind your own concert wankfests? Like you’ve got a copyright on them?

If it takes a concert by popular artists to wake people up, then I’m all for as many as we need. Here’s to President Gore.
