UK Live 8 Location Buried in Trash

live8-pile-rubbish-01.jpgIn other news, the 205,000 people who attended the Live 8 show in the UK left behind them what is estimated to be between 150 and 650 tonnes of assorted trash (at 3 kilos (6.6 pounds) per person )! "The litter levels are set to beat the previous record, set by the May Day demonstrations in 2000." I sure hope they had an impact on poverty in Africa, because they sure didn't help the environment much on that day. The costs of cleanup are unknown because the company that did the job has a set price contract and isn't charging extra.
