Bass Player Leaves Brazilian Pop Group Because Of Climate Change Worries

You have to hand it to bass player Ira Trevisan for coming up with one of the more creative excuses for leaving a rock group. Her band, CSS, is a rising staple in Brazilian’s pop music scene, but Trevisan has decided to leave because of one big reason: climate change. From the article,

“‘I am a bit worried about climate change,’ she said, though it’s apparent she’s more than a bit concerned. ‘People should care more and do something. I decided to fly less. CSS will always be in my heart.’

I can’t help but wonder if there was more to that decision…

Obviously, rock groups flying around the world is a contributor to CO2 — but other green musicians have come to the conclusion that they can do more with their music, in terms of inspiring and educating on green issues, than if they just stayed home. This is the first time I can recall that a musician has been concerned about climate change and decided to drop out of their profession all-together. Seems a bit rash — couldn’t they at least fly commercial, institute offsets, and give a percentage of their cash to green charities? Seems like a better thing to do than just quitting something you love altogether.
