Radiohead’s Thom Yorke has been in attendance at the Copenhagen Climate Conference the past couple days — and based on his blog entries, he’s definitely not immune to the growing frustration mounting as the end draws near.
“i pray something. i pray that something comes of this process,” he wrote earlier today. “that all these people for all these years, all these flights to copenhagen all this hot air has some meaning. and in the midst of it all i take to bbc radio 1 and am asked ‘yeah but is climate change really real’ etc etc. oh for gods sake.
what am i doing here??”
As the day has dragged on, Yorke’s posts have started to become a bit darker.
“i think i may have had enough of cynicism, brinkmanship, face saving and posturing,” his latest reads. “have had enough of sitting in a crowd of journalists watching for anything that might happen waves on nothing.. so crazy . . this is all far too late. far too late.”
Bleak stuff. Check out a video interview at Copenhagen of the eco-concious singer talking about carbon emissions below:
