Good news, Green Heads! 

It’s been reported that Thom Yorke, front man of Radiohead, is launching the Friends of the Earth’s Big Ask Europe campaign to help Europe cut down on her carbon emissions. The Big Ask campaign combines Friends of the Earth groups from 17 countries who want the European Union to set legally binding emission reductions of 30 percent by 2020 and 90 percent by 2050. 

Could this work? I think so. Previously, Friends of the Earth passed the Big Ask in the UK proposal, which secured a highly anticipated climate change law, that once put into effect, will make the UK the first country to set legally binding targets for cutting greenhouse gases.  

Yorke, who also participated in the UK proposal said: “We will never wake from the nightmare of climate change unless our national governments and the European Union act. They are the only ones who can put the structures in place that will help us tackle climate change. By committing to annual cuts in our emissions at a national and European level we can play our part in tackling climate change and set an example to the rest of the world to follow.”

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again: You Brits sure know how to party green. Thanks to Thom Yorke from Radiohead and Friends of the Earth for fighting the good fight and doing their part to help end climate change. Did you hear that? I believe Al Gore just shed a tear.

    Yes, Thom York is the bomb and one of my favorite vegetarians.

    This campaign is great…if there is still a planet by 2020.

    Radiohead band has marked itself as one of the most popular rock bands. Their style is known of the harmony found among its members. And this is what helps them create a good music. Since its creation in the early nineties up till now Radiohead has captured people’s attention and succeeded to gather more and more audience. Their popularity is fairly remarkable while in a concert. It become so hard to find a ticket and prices become so high. As I am one of thousands of their fans, this problem upsets me and in more than once I missed some concerts due to tickets prices. Lately, a friend recommended me a site to compare ticket prices and I find it interesting idea because this way I can look for the cheapest prices in the ticket market. In case you want to us it here it is:
