MAIN Arrow to Science Environmental Sciences Arrow to Global Warming Global Warming Arrow to Live Earth Live Earth

Performers | TV Schedule


Get ready for a 24-hour worldwide summer extravaganza on July 7, 2007.

That's when Save Our Selves : The Campaign for a Climate in Crisis hopes to trigger a broader movement to address what former Vice President Al Gore calls a "planetary emergency."

The catalyst behind Live Earth is an Oscar winner for "An Inconvenient Truth", a film that spells out the dire consequences of global warming.

In a statement announcing the event, Gore said "The climate crisis will only be stopped by an unprecedented and sustained global movement. We hope to jump-start that movement right here, right now, and take it to a new level on July 7, 2007."

To bring Live Earth to the worldwide stage on seven continents, Gore is working shoulder-to-shoulder with Kevin Wall, who produced the Live 8 concert in 2005, as well as stars from the entertainment world, including producer-rapper Pharrell Williams and actress Cameron Diaz.

As part of the effort, the team is bringing together more than 100 of the world's top musical performers, in much the way Bob Geldof did for Live Aid and Willie Nelson did for Farm Aid.
