How This Popular Boy Band Is Raising Awareness On Climate Change

Looks like losing a member hasn’t lessened One Direction’s humanitarian spirit.

Speaking directly to their fans — an extremely loyal bunch known as Directioners — the popular British boy band released a video Wednesday on their website to mark the launch of Action/1D, a campaign aimed at raising awareness about global issues like climate change.

“2015 is a year like no other, and we want you to really make it count,” the video begins. “At two historic summits in September and December, world leaders will make decisions that affect important human issues, like extreme poverty, inequality, and climate change.”

“Please will you join us to put pressure on our leaders?” the boys ask. “All you need to do is tell us what you want your world to look like in the future.”

Will they be telling all their young fans to make sure they never use fossil fuels and go carbon neutral? Speaking of fossil fuels

(UK Daily Mail) One Direction have denied being two-faced after throwing their weight behind a climate change campaign despite previously admitting they often use two private jets to travel the globe.

The group, who last last year were revealed to be the richest boyband in British music history with a combined wealth of £70million, have joined Save the Children in launching action/1D.

In a statement they said: ‘Young people really do have the power to help end poverty, tackle inequality and stop dangerous climate change.’

It comes after the band racked up around 200,000 miles while travelling the world on their past two tours.

So, climahypocrites. And like all good Warmists, they have Excuses

When approached by the Daily Mirror about whether One Direction’s carbon-burning mode of transport was at odds with the campaign, Save the Children said: ‘None of us are perfect.’

The charity’s Brendan Cox added: ‘One Direction is the biggest band in the world and by mobilising the millions of young people in their fanbase, they’ll shine a light on the most important issues of our time.’

A spokesman for One Direction claimed the band’s flights were ‘part of a carbon offset programme’.

He said the band used Starflight jets, a company which works alongside the charity Cool Earth to try and offset carbon emissions by protecting the rainforests.

Yet again, Warmists who tell us it’s a crisis but fail to act like it’s a crisis.

    Maybe you might consider using that band as part of your pick up line “hey babe do you like One Direction?”
    1/2 their fan base are your target age group

  2. john says:

    Teach when it comes to BIG problems you have to start thinking NOT of individual efforts. Like the old China Marines said “Gung Ho” (all) work together

    Pretty much says it all.

    In Jeff and John’s world they would have to walk or ride bicycles…no wait bicycles are out because their is not enough energy to make them.

    So they would have to walk and play accoustical guitars and shout their songs because there is no energy to make electric guitars, amplifiers, stadiums in which to play and manufacture paper to create tickets and flyers and advertising on the internet would be out because their would be power outtages all the time…….

    and well no one would own a computer because there is nothing to strip mine the planet for the matertials to make them….you know that CPU’s require a tremendous amount of energy to dig….

    Not available in Jeff and Johns world….

    the plan for the communists is not to make the poor rich.

  5. Liam Thomas says:

    But to make the Rich…….POOR!

    and now you know the rest of the story.

  6. Deserttrek says:

    more hypocritical child abusers ….

  7. Jeffery says:

    The objective of progressivism is for the economy to serve us all, not just the super wealthy.

    The nature of our current plutocracy is for the wealthy to finance most political activities, and in turn for the politicians to enact laws to benefit the wealthy. Unfortunately, this is almost always at the expense of the working classes. Lower labor costs? reduce jobs or wages for workers. Reduce safety regs? increase on the job danger for workers. Reduce Social Security benefits? Reduce Medicare benefits? Increase defense spending? Increase corporate profits. Reduce financial oversight? Increase financial sector profits. Trade agreements, patent law, immigration policies – all to benefit the donors. All the poor and middle classes seek is a level playing field. The current system is not sustainable.

    Do you know how silly you seem even accusing anyone of being a COMMUNISTA!!!! that is like so last century.
    Liam the workd has changed. And apparently you are having a difficult time keeping up.
    Fossil fuels? I drive a truck I have a class A cdl but usually drive Bs. I have pit 800 dollars worth of fuel onto my tanks and burned i. My guess is that I have burned more carbon than you.
    But that does not mean that I don’t think all of us should try to burn less, but I have never said I wanted or expected anyone to stop burning carbon completely. BUT you seem to say that is what I want? Why do you say things like that? To create a straw man that you can beat up?
    tsk tsk Liam you are letting your emotions run wild. Have some milk and cookies and chill out

    Liam is this about your flag? Do you think that your flag was captured by communists and now you can’t fly it anymore?

    Funny. Im sorry John I could care less if the confederate flag is banned from existence. Its an Astro-turfer campaign designed to chip away at Americans freedom one item at a time.

    That is my only concern. Perhaps one day you would be concerned if they banned Condoms, birth control, the right to protest, the Internet where you seem to have the power to influence a person or two.

    In your AGW world you will kill the internet as there is nothing to produce computers to use the internet and rolling blackouts cause the wind is not blowing or the sun is not shining will shut down the internet.

    Perhaps one day you will walk a mile from your computer and see what is really happening out there.

    As for communism….I have travelled communist countries rather extensively for decades and I see the filth, squalor and lack of opportunity……

    As for your AGW agenda I could care less who makes the money….but in this world….even a communist world….someone makes the money off YOU BACK….they always have and they always will…..

    and your naive belief in nirvana will not alter the fact that the first to go in your newly created communist world will be anyone who was a foot soldier for the cause.

    Wise up….learn to be a little tolerant and spend some time actually looking around……or don’t…..

    communism is real….Almost TWO billion people live under its clutches and for you to demonize me for being afraid of communism just proves that you are a communist yourself.

    Enjoy your destruction of America and the world….all one has to do is look at China and realize once you have communism in this country they will pollute this planet to extinction for their own edification and on the backs of the people they profess to help.

    Grow up.
