Radiohead Wants You To Go Green Too

Radiohead is asking fans to make smart decisions about how they get to shows on their upcoming tour.

RADIOHEAD APPEAL TO FANS TO CONSIDER METHODS OF TRAVEL TO UPCOMING SHOWS

On the eve of their 2008 tour, which begins this Monday in West Palm Beach FL, Radiohead are appealing to fans to think about how they travel to and from shows.

Last year, the band commissioned carbon footprint analysts Best Foot Forward to calculate the carbon generated on their two previous US tours. The report showed that fans' travel to and from the shows accounted for the greatest proportion of the CO2 generated during each tour, something now widely accepted across the industry.

Following the report's recommendations, Radiohead are encouraging fans to consider public transport where available, or increased carpooling for shows outside city centers. Gig goers can compare the CO2 generated by different methods of transport by visiting an online calculator on Radiohead's website. Some of the venues have also helped by offering incentives to fans coming by public transport or in a full car.

After the tour, the band will invite ticket holders to submit information on their methods of travel so further research can be done on carbon emissions and methods to reduce them.

Radiohead's production team will also be posting information on how the band are trying to reduce their own carbon emissions on tour without compromising the quality of the shows.

You know I think all these celebs should do to help us all help the world? Create a charity that helps the middle class afford to "go green".

There's a reason why more people aren't picking up this 'better way of life'... and it's not because we don't care, it's because we can't afford it. Show me a hybrid that can fit a family of 5 that is less than $30,000 (I know $30k doesn't seem like much to some of you but unless you have sparkling perfect credit it isn't only $30k)... show me organic foods that aren't at least a dollar more than non-organic.

I keep getting fucking interrupted, but I hope you guys get the basic point of what I'm saying, I'll elaborate later without a spoiled one-year old crawling at my feet.

This is three miles from my house... and I am going to miss it.

I have to start work the next day anyway.

Sucks.
