Has it become the talk of online bingo hall chat rooms? Are online bingo players all abuzz about it?
The indications are, just like the rest of the world, we people who play online bingo are somewhat underwhelmed by last weekends Live Earth concerts. It seems there’s a general feeling that facile and frivolous pop doesn’t mix that well with more serious issues like carbon emissions and global warming.
Despite the host of famous and glitzy stars and bands that pranced across stages made of recycled tires, the Live Earth event seems to have failed in generating the kind of buzz normally associated with this kind of thing.
Then there is the issue with just how much extra rubbish the shows generated, and we’re not talking about the level of talent on display. A huge cleanup job is now underway to get rid of all the junk and other stuff left behind by the series of concerts worldwide. Media have also asked just what good will all these pop stars achieve exactly with the event.
"Mixing music and a serious message gives concert a clunky rhythm," was the description given by the Washington Post of the Wembley show.
Poor old Maddona came in for some stick regards her own green credentials. One article pointed out she has an annual "carbon footprint" of around 100 times the average person in Britain. The News of the World listed her carbon emissions from nine houses, a fleet of cars, a private jet and the Confessions tour. It labeled her a "climate-change catastrophe". Then there’s the issue of her alleged financial links to companies accused of being major polluters.
One thing for sure, online bingo’s carbon footprint is unlikely to cause much stress to the current climate debate. In fact, I would say that free online bingo games are probably one of the most environmentally responsible ways to enjoy your self.
I’ll leave the last words to US comedian Chris Rock who cheekily said during the extravaganzas: "I pray that this event ends global warming the same way that Live Aid ended world hunger."
