Radiohead is backing a Friends of the Earth campaign to raise environmental awareness in the run-up the forthcoming Earth Summit. Yorke contributed the following message to the cause’s official website. “The Earth Summit is the only opportunity we have left to address the hijacked free trade agenda of the WTO, to make the environment inextricably linked to poverty and the global divide of 1st and 3rd world, to make corporations accountable for the environmental effects of their business, wherever they choose to hide, and to make wealthy countries take responsibility for the impact their over-consumption has on the rest of the world. It is not good enough to preach about the trickle down effect of economic growth if your house is being washed away, your child has skin cancer, you can’t get clean water and the weather is changing beyond recognition, forever.”
