A LiveEarth rant (not mine)

Nobody does it better than Jim Kunstler:

What I wonder especially: is this the only way we know how to respond to the difficulties that life on earth presents — to engage a corps of professional narcissists to strut and pose in stadiums, affecting to wave their magic wands (or Fender Stratocasters) and make everybody feel better about a given problem (distress on the farm, disease in Africa, global warming….)? Can’t we think of other, more meaningful things to do? Or are we stuck in a perpetually delusional rut of Woodstock-style symbolism, out doing a global rain dance instead of really changing our behavior?
