Live Earth

Registration to be in with a chance to buy tickets for Live Earth London is open until tomorrow at midday...

The Live Earth website describes the concerts - one in each continent, all on 7th July 2007, as...

"a monumental music event that will bring together more than 2 billion people to combat the climate crisis. Live Earth’s 24 hours of music across 7 continents will deliver a call to action and the solutions needed to answer the call. Live Earth marks the beginning of a multi-year mass persuasion campaign led by The Alliance for Climate Protection to move individuals, corporations and governments to take action."

But there has been no shortage of controversy about the events... Are pop stars (whose carbon footprints must be pretty big) the best people to be spreading the message about climate change? And how green can it be to be running concerts of this scale across the world?

Find out more about the concerts, how they'll work and how environmentally-friendly they'll be on the Live Earth London website... What do you think? Are these concerts a good idea? Will they work? And most importantly, will you be trying to get tickets?!
