Live Earth Kills People – And That’s Good

by | 4th, June 2007

YOu might have missed this gem:

IT WAS intended to be the symbolic gesture at a global series of rock concerts next month to alert people to climate change. Al Gore, the former US presidential candidate turned climate doomsayer, had wanted a massive switch-off of lights by television audiences, but the National Grid has vetoed the idea.

The inconvenient truth, it says, is that the power surge when people switched their lights back on could cause disruptions in supply and even endanger hospital patients on life support machines.

But on the plus side, less people means less carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Rock on!
