Thom Yorke Reports From the Copenhagen Climate Talks


Since we spend most of our day doing stuff like tracking Sandra Bullock’s Oscar chances and listening to Gucci Mane, we have no idea what’s going on with the climate talks in Copenhagen. But Thom Yorke does! The Radiohead front man took some time off from his busy schedule of making music people love/hate and took a trip to the U.N. Climate Change Conference to suss out the situation for himself. And it’s not looking good, folks: Yorke’s upset about something called NGOs being thrown out of somewhere (Denmark?), and totally isn’t feeling the American administration’s tactics throughout this whole shindig. Through it all, he manages to offer words of encouragement, saying “like most people, I was ready to give up on it, but I think the more people that think like that, the worse it is. You’ve got to try and be positive.” We’re actually not particularly concerned, though: Thom Yorke’s on the case!
