Pearl Jam Goes Green

| July / August 2003

Seattle grunge icons Pearl Jam have pledged that their first U.S. concert tour in three years this summer will be ?climate neutral.? The band has calculated the precise amount of energy it will use during its 30,000-mile tour (about 5,700 tons of CO2) and will purchase and protect a 1,400-square-mile section of rainforest in Madagascar that accounts for 5,700 tons of ?conservation carbon.?
