snipshot_e4j5iq2756p.jpgWith the concerts over, reactions to the Live Earth event are coming in voicing praise, disgust, hope, and cheer. Basically, a thick stew of opinions is boiling over. Here are some of our recent favorites:

On Live Earth London, Neil McCormick wrote,

“‘If you wanna save the planet, jump up and down!’ urged Madonna. Can global warming be stopped by an out-of-breath, middle-aged, super-rich narcissist in a leotard and high heels?”

“Gore’s film, An Inconvenient Truth, woke a lot of people up to the very real and imminent dangers of climate change. But the inconvenient truth of Live Earth is that it was a soulless telethon, with no clarity or drive. ”

From the LA Times, Ann Powers wrote,

” SYSTEM overload. That’s the only way to describe the pageantry of Live Earth. Al Gore and promoter Kevin Wall’s continents-spanning music festival undoubtedly spiked awareness about environmentalist causes, but it paid off more directly as an experiment in cultural interconnection across time zones and in the floating realm of the Internet.”

From the Chicago-Sun Times, Jim Derogatis wrote,

“So, in the end, can pop music really save the world? If I didn’t believe that it could, I couldn’t do this job. Great music can certainly change individuals’ minds, prompting them to act for the betterment of society. But in order for that to happen with the environmental movement, we’re going to need much, much better music than Live Earth gave us.”

From DOSE.ca, Heather Adler wrote,

“Still, at the end of the long, long, hard-rocking day, 24-hours of environmentally conscious footage was broadcast to some 2 billion people across the globe. It might not have been perfect, but maybe there will be a few less bottles in the trash and a few more energy efficient bulbs in sockets today.”
