Live Earth: Destroying earth to save it?

I came back at 11pm on Saturday night and immediately switched on the TV to watch Live Earth, the 24 hour global concert event to raise public awareness on protecting our environment. I stopped watching at 6am because I had to go to the airport for awhile. I came back home an hour later and continued watching Live Earth till 9.30am. Then I had to get out again to attend a meeting at Pan Pacific Hotel - that meant not getting any sleep for the night.

Live Earth was great. Some of the performances that I liked were Corinne Bailey Rae (she's a doll!), Rihanna (Hot!!!) and Enrique Iglesias (ahem). In between the performances, cleverly done public service announcements starring celebrities were broadcast to educate viewers about global warming and energy conservancy.

I'm all for saving the Earth, but after spending the night watching Live Earth, I realised that it may have done our dear planet a great harm. Flying the music stars all over the world and getting millions to head to the concerts and watch them on TV cannot be environmentally friendly aye. Take me for example. I don't usually watch the TV on Saturday nights unless there's the English Premier League but my TV was on the whole night for Live Earth. That's not energy saving! Shit. Looks like over the next few days, I will have to plant a few more trees and even, cycle to town. Damn you, Live Earth.
