Madonna’s Earth Jump Remedy
Madonna may have struck a chord at one time with her song “Papa Don’t Preach,” but apparently the pleading lyrics weren’t enough to stop the Material Mama from doing some preaching of her own at the Live Earth concert.
After thanking Al Gore “for giving the world the wake-up call it so badly needs and for starting an avalanche of awareness that we are running out of time,” Madonna expressed hope that the concerts were not merely entertainment but about “starting a revolution around the world.”
Then the pop star emeritus revealed the way she was inspired to counter climate change, saying, “If you want to save the planet, I want you to start jumping up and down!”
She went on to simulate sex with a guitar and amplifier.
Despite her being in lecture mode, Madonna failed to mention that she has invested in some of the biggest corporate polluting companies in the world. She also stayed mum about her collection of energy consuming cars, private jets, and massive mansions.
As Fox News recently reported, the singer has invested about $2.7 million in companies that are contributing to the so-called destruction Live Earth warned about.
And according to John Buckley of Carbon Footprint, Madonna’s annual carbon emission count is 1,018 tons — about 92 times the 11 tons that an average person uses per year.
That’s a lot to be jumpy about.
