ABSTRACT
The article reports on the participation of rock musicians in the One Earth Concert that will be held in Great Britain in January 2006. The concert aims to promote awareness of climate change. It will be broadcast to millions worldwide, and expects to instigate public action towards climate change, beginning with the simple step of switching to renewable energy. Michael Mathres, co-founder of the Climate Change Now organization, said that people are concerned about the impact of climate change but do not know how easy it is to make a huge difference. Such issue is expected to be addressed through the concert.
