Thom Yorke: Pissed Off In Copenhagen

Yorke with environmentalist Tony Juniper at the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen (via Dead Air Space).

Radiohead’s Thom Yorke somehow got ahold of a press pass yesterday and has been filing a series of increasingly vitriolic dispatches from the UN’s Climate Change Conference now playing out in Copenhagen with all the expected inertia.  You can check ‘em out on the Radiohead band blog, Dead Air Space, but here’s a taste of Yorke’s totally valid indignation:

...there is a lot of brinksmanship, the americans offering money seemed.  but no-one was talking 40 percent cuts by 2020.  and the negotiations had an obvious G8 vibe about them.  the west dictating terms and bizarrely assuming that the science could be bartered.. !!! arguing about who cuts what??? that somehow the amount we have to cut our emissions is negotiable??  what a crock of shit.

Yorke also appeared on The Stupid Show (below), a web-based series tied in to the climate change doc, The Age of Stupid.

As the Copenhagen Talks begin, a massive problem rears its head: The Himalayas, one of the world’s primary sources of fresh water (as well as spiritual weirdness), are under threat from global warming. The Himalayan glaciers that store the world’s waters are melting. As if China’s Three Gorges Dam project wasn’t enough, now this?

Way above us in the Himalayan cloud are jagged, snowbound peaks ?
