Longtime environmental activist and Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke crashed the Copenhagen Climate Summit in an effort to counter what he thinks is bad news (and bad reporting) eminating from the country-on-country showdown.
He has been blogging about the experience all week, with quick hits like, "obama walks past with a very grim expression, everyone thought he was stroming out but no he'd just been in talks with the chinese. just now a french delegate tells me that brazil has stormed out of the talks. this is all so sad. still peace and goodwill to all men. love and understanding," and "what is frustrating so far is americas attitude. hilary clintons speech was apparently still trying to shift responsibilty for emissions around... which is just frankly nuts."
How was he able to gain access? He apparently got credentials as a journalist. Thom Yorke: he's just like one of us!
Yorke also helped to promote and speak at the premiere of global warming documentary "The Age of Stupid" earlier this year.
