Back in September, Radiohead’s Thom Yorke took to New York where he helped kick off the premier of the environmental friendly film The Age of Stupid with a solo performance of “Reckoner”. Evidence here.
Anyhow, Mr. Yorke is still going green, as evident by his appearance on the web TV series “The Stupid Show” earlier today. The show is a one week only type of deal dedicated to covering this week’s UN Climate Summit in Copenhagen. In addition to Yorke, this week’s guests have included Mohammed Nasheed (President of the Maldives), Achim Steiner (United Nations Under-Secretary General), and Kumi Naidoo (the UN, Secretary General to the Eminent Persons Group). Talk about elite company!
We’ll post the podcast/video as soon as it is up. Update: Check out the first video below.
We’d also like to share some of our favorite Yorke quotes from the appearance thus far:
“For 30-40 years we’ve all been bombarded by climate deniers.”
“[Copenhagen] sounds like a G8 summit, everyone leaves with a bit of paper thinking.”
And our favorite:
“Ignore the BBC, they are a bunch of fucking monkeys, bringing on deniers in the name of balance.”
Another Yorke interview from Copenhagen, in which he explains his last minute decision to come to Copenhagen and why he is pissed off at America:
