Don’t ever say we never did anything for you. On Saturday, while you were cavorting in the surf, grilling organic free-range meat on the barbecue (or is that barbecuing meat on the grill?), or kicking back with a good book in the sweet, sweet air conditioning, Grist was sweating at Live Earth New York. Er, New Jersey. Whatever.

We suffered through sets by Ludacris, Melissa Etheridge, Roger Waters, and the Police to report back — to YOU, dear Grist reader — from the front lines of global eco-activism.

Reader support helps sustain our work. Donate today to keep our climate news free.

Or something like that.

Check back soon for my report from the scene of Live Earth at Giants Stadium on 7/7/07.
