Take Part in LIVE EARTH

Since FitSugar readers care so much about the Earth, I wanted to let you know that on this Saturday, on 7.7.07, you can take part in Live Earth. It's a 24-hour, 7 continent concert series that will bring together more than 100 music artists and 2 billion people to trigger a global movement to solve the climate crisis.

Live Earth marks the beginning of a multi-year campaign led by the Alliance for Climate Protection, The Climate Group and other international organizations to drive individuals, corporations and governments to take action to solve global warming. Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore is the Chair of the Alliance and Partner of Live Earth.

There are some simple things we all can do to help combat global warming: turn off lights when you leave a room, unplug appliances that are not in use, take shorter showers (heating the water takes energy), walk or ride your bike more and drive your car less (if that's not possible, carpool or take public transportation), plant a tree, keep windows covered on a hot day so you don't have to use the AC as much, and dry washed clothes outside instead of in a dryer.

You can also check out the Live Earth concerts. If you want to find out where they'll be and some of the artists, then

  • Giants Stadium in New York: Kelly Clarkson, Smashing Pumpkins, The Police, John Mayer, Dave Matthews Band, Bon Jovi, Alicia Keys, Melissa Etheridge, KT Tunstall
  • Wembley Stadium in London: Beastie Boys, Black Eyed Peas, James Blunt, Foo Fighters, Pussycat Dolls, Madonna, Red Hot Chili Peppers
  • Aussie Stadium in Sydney: Jack Johnson, Crowded House, Eskimo Joe

  • Maropeng at the Cradle of Humankind in Johannesburg: Joss Stone, UB40, Soweto Gospel Choir, Zola, Baaba Maal

  • The Steps of the Oriental Pearl Tower in Shanghai: 12 Girls Band, Sarah Brightman, Evonne Hsu, Soler

If you can't make it to a show, Live Earth concerts will be broadcast to a live worldwide audience by MSN at

I'll be watching that online...since obviously they're not going to be my hometown lol. And I am definitely trying to do more things to help too. I don't want to just sit and do nothing.

I started doing some of the things listed above about 6 months ago. I feel like I'm at least doing something and not ignoring the problem like most people are.
