How many concerts does it take to save the world? Evidently more than we’ve had thus far.
The most recent one, honoring Nobel Peace laureates Al Gore and the United Nations climate panel, was held last month in Oslo, Norway, drawing performers like Annie Lennox, Melissa Etheridge, Kylie Minogue and Alicia Keys.
The concert, intended to draw attention to what Gore calls the “planetary emergency” of global warming, was hosted by Uma Thurman and Kevin Spacey. “What we are hearing is that everyone needs to get very much involved with climate,” said Thurman, as quoted by the Sacramento Bee. “It’s coming to us. It’s coming to a theater near us, very, very near us.”
