Going "Live" for Climate Change Awareness in CO and Worldwide

July 6, 2007

"Live Earth" goes live this weekend, and Colorado won't be left out of the action. Local concerts and parties are planned across the state to bring awareness to climate change and to watch the series of rock-stravaganzas on each continent that will take place starting tonight. In Colorado, More than 30 events are planned from Fort Collins and the rest of the Front Range to Frisco and Grand Junction. Roger Singer is with the Sierra Club, one of the groups sponsoring an "Eco-Concert" in Boulder's Central Park on Saturday.

"I think we're gonna be able to reach a whole new set of people who have heard about global warming in passing, but really don't know how to get involved or what to do about it. This way, not only will they be entertained by the great music acts out there, but they'll also learn a little bit about what we can do together to help solve global warming."

State Senate President Joan Fitz-Gerald will be on hand to talk about Colorado's role in fighting climate change.

"I think this is a great opportunity for everyone to say: 'You know what, all of this is my responsibility. The world I leave to the next generation says something about me.'"

Fitz-Gerald will speak about Colorado's role at an "Eco-Concert" in Boulder on Saturday.

"Colorado's got the perfect climate for sun and wind, and we wanna be able to take advantage of those things for the sake of a better environment."

The "Live Earth" concerts can be viewed online or network TV this weekend. The first show begins tonight at 7 p.m. MST from Sydney, Australia. For a list of local house parties and events, visit
