Thom Yorke lends support to Friends of the Earth
I have always considered Thom Yorke to be an intelligent and compassionate artist and therefore was not surprised to learn that he is an active supporter for Friends Of The Earth. Via a video message Yorke proclaimed, "Reminding my MP to remind Gordon Brown that he's committed to a bill to reduce our CO2 emissions double quick time. And if he doesn't we're going to come down on him like a ton of bricks." Thom will be joining Razorlight's Johnny Borrell, KT Tunstall, Badly Drawn Boy and The Holloways are amongst the other celebrities who are already part of the campaign. The campaign hopes to draw attention and support for a proposed climate change law with stricter regulations and more aggressive measures.
