I'm looking forward to the full life cycle analysis of the tour including all the embedded carbon and the journeys and waste their fans generate.They’re “powering the concert” with a combination of a giant mobile battery, and “a floor that captures the kinetic energy of the crowd”.
But the battery will need to be charged, so why not just power the concert direct from the grid and cut out the ‘battery’?
And both the massive battery and ‘floor’ will need to be hauled across the Americas and Europe in multiple trucks and shipping containers. And as mentioned already, Chris Martin is refusing to give up his private jet for the duration of the tour.
So instead of his planned attempt to greenwash his carbon footprint, it has highlighted the fact that he’s nothing more than just another virtue signalling celebrity desperate for attention.
