Another Music Group Slams Live Earth Hypocrisy

The British band, Arctic Monkeys, have let their feelings be known about the upcoming Live Earth concerts on Saturday.
It's a bit patronizing for us 21 year olds to try to start to change the world...Especially when we're using enough power for 10 houses just for (stage) lighting. It'd be a bit hypocritical
I've never heard of the band, but I like their way of thinking. To try and curb the impact that the concerts will have on Mother Earth, the organizers are trying to do what they can. One step involves asking concert goers to carpool or take public transportation. Yeah, millions of people around the world will do just that. I'm sure people in California will carpool to New York rather than fly. Another one of their steps is carbon offseting. They'll pollute the Earth on Saturday, but they'll plant some trees and make a few donations on Sunday to alleviate their guilt.
