We're big fans of Radiohead's Tom Yorke and his involvement in the climate-change movement.
If you receive the HeadCount Sustainability & Conservation e-newsletter, you already know that Yorke kicked off The Age of Stupid's September 21 premiere with a New York City acoustic performance that was broadcast live to theaters screening the film. (Yorke performed "Reckoner," as seen below). This drama-documentary-animation hybrid depicts an old man living in the devastated world of 2055, watching "archive" footage from 2008 and asking, "Why didn't we stop climate change while we had the chance?"
At 2 p.m. EST today, Yorke will appear on "The Stupid Show," airing live from the same building where the international climate change negotiations are taking place in Copenhagen. (President Obama will speak at the United Nations Climate Change Conference tomorrow.)
Presented by Age of Stupid director Franny Armstrong and Mark Lynas, author of Six Degrees: Our Future on a Hotter Planet, "The Stupid Show" has been webcasting live every night of the conference, which concludes tomorrow. If you miss today's live webcast, check "The Stupid Show" website for the show's archives, including Yorke's appearance.
