Ceci n'est pas une personne.

Fact checkers, can you verify something that has been nagging me since watching the Live Earth concert?

The bands were hyping that their buses now run on biodiesel and that would reduce their carbon foot print.

While I think it is great to get away from oil to something renewable, does biodiesel actually reduce CO2 emissions? Given the smoke I see coming from most diesels(bio or otherwise) I always figured diesel was just as much of a polluter at gas.

With a purposeful grimace and a terrible sound
He pulls the spitting high tension wires down

Helpless people on a subway train
Scream bug-eyed as he looks in on them

He picks up a bus and he throws it back down
As he wades through the buildings toward the center of town

Oh no, they say he's got to go go go Godzilla
Oh no, there goes Tokyo Seattle go go Godzilla

History shows again and again
How nature points up the folly of men

Ceci n'est pas une personne.

Last Live Earth comment...

So... One of the spokes people was Shawn White (The Flying Tomato) who is also shown in AMEX ads flying all over the world to catch the latest powder. Conflict in image?

And the credit card companies going overboard sponsoring the event, yet still stuffing my mailbox full of dead trees. Conflict between words and action?
