The Soothing Sounds Of Global Warming

13 03 2007

It’s gonna be the hottest event of the year.  Via Drudge, The Politico has the scoop.

Yes, the former vice president wants to stage a global-warming concert at the Capitol. I can’t believe it’ll come off, but if it does, I want a ticket. Look at some of the bands they have lined up for this thing (at liveearth.org), including the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Snoop Dogg and Bon Jovi. Even I know these guys are pretty cool. Get it? Pretty cool.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Sen. Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) have introduced a resolution to use the Capitol grounds as a site for the huge, multi-venue global-warming concert on July 7.

The Live Earth concert will take place on seven continents and reach more than 2 billion people, according to its promoters. One of the groups involved is the Alliance for Climate Protection, founded by, among others, … wait for it … Al Gore.

Wow, not only can you buy your carbon offsets from Gore, now you can buy your concert tickets from him, too.  For all his faults, you have to give him credit for intrepid entrepreneurship.

It’s all about the Benjamins.
