With all the alarmism about man-made climate change ramping up, the entertainment community is trying to do their part. Queen guitarist Brian May sees musicians from all over the world coming together to “help”:

That’s an interesting goal, but has it been thought through?
Where all the artists will fly in on private jets, the parking will be packed with gas guzzling cars, and the power required to run the show will be enough to power a city for a week… sounds like it's good for the climate!

The air feels cleaner already!
That will do it. Have everyone fly in on private jets as well to perfect the horrific optics.

He’s right. Someone should fly in celebrities from all around the globe to perform and tell those of us at home how we can reduce our carbon footprints. https://t.co/I4fKqLeZHp

Hey, you can’t make a climate change omelet without breaking a few emissions eggs!
Only if he does an acoustic set in his back garden in the dark.

Maybe one of them can do a set,
then fly across the Atlantic to perform another set in NYC or something.

Touring stadium bands have enormous carbon footprints.
Remember what the press said about #EmmaThompson 's appearance at the #ExtinctionRebellionlondon protest [after flying in from the USA]

Think of all the pollution created in that large gathering.

We can’t be sure if such a concert will ever take place, but it looks like May could take some action to decrease the band’s personal carbon footprint:
