"Live Earth"

On 7/7/07 a series of pop and rock concerts will be held across 8 cities to spread awareness about the global warming crisis. Millions, even billions, of people are expected to tune in on their TVs and radios (in addition to the tens of thousands already attending the shows themselves) and be a part of this event.

There are literally hundreds of artists going to be performing; so whatever your taste in music, you're likely to find something you like. But the music is just a medium, "save the environment" is the message. You must do your bit to save our environment.

Use less fuel -- use public transport, ride a bicycle, carpool. Use less electricity -- turn off lights and fans when not in use, replace bulbs by Compact Fluoroscent Lamps. Stop using plastics. Reduce the use of water heaters, air conditioners and room heaters. Save trees -- use less paper.

These are only a few of the things you can do. These little things can make a big difference. Remember the 4 R's -- Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Restore.
