Beds are Burning

As much as I hate to admit the reality of global warming and climate change, I must say the heat wave over the last couple weeks has not only ruined all hopes for fall outerwear, but also made me realize the importance of the U.N Global Climate Change Conference taking place December 7, 2009 in Copenhagen. In order to raise awareness for this monumental summit (as well as the strangely excessive heat), Kofi Annan has teamed up with record label The:Hours to launch the campaign titled "Tck Tck Tck: Time for Climate Justice." And what better way to raise awareness than to create a song and video (below) that bring together some of today's most influential artists? The song is titles "Beds are Burning", and yes, Mr. Bob Geldof is involved (were you at all surprised?). In an effort to up the "We Are the World" schmaltz, Tck Tck Tck allows you to sign a digital petition by simply downloading the track here. Do your part and let the Midnight Oil references fly!
