Live Earth — The Wackos Can’t Get It Right

If you haven’t heard, today (07/07/07) was chosen by Algore and others to have an SOS Live Earth concert thing.  From the website (no, I’m not linking to it):

Live Earth is a 24-hour, 7-continent concert series taking place on 7/7/07 that will bring together more than 100 music artists and 2 billion people to trigger a global movement to solve the climate crisis.

 Reading more on their site, you find out that the concerts are happening in “…Giants Stadium in New York; Wembley Stadium in London; Aussie Stadium in Sydney; Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro; the Coca-Cola Dome in Johannesburg; Makuhari Messe in Tokyo; the Oriental Pearl Tower in Shanghai; and HSH Nordbank Arena in Hamburg.”

The last time I checked, that is only 6 continents represented…not 7.  Let’s see if I have that right:

  • New York = North America
  • London = Europe
  • Sydney = Australia
  • Rio de Janeiro = South America
  • Johannesburg = Africa
  • Tokyo = Asia
  • Shanghai = Asia
  • Hamburg = Europe

 The continents are:

  • North America (check)
  • Europe (check)
  • Australia (check)
  • South America (check)
  • Africa (check)
  • Asia (check)
  • Antarctica (nope)

 I think they are misrepresenting their movement.  It doesn’t include 7 continents…only 6 are represented.
