I love this. The eco hypocrisy was blinding and it did make me understand how the population have just dismissed all of Bono’s previous humanitarian efforts without a thought.
Bono and Edge talking climate crisis does mirror the ‘near billionaire begging for donations’ narrative somewhat.

You really count SOS as original
Songs? The post above clearly says original songs.

I understand where you’re coming from here but would counter that this is part of what makes U2 “U2”…combining performance art with big, important ideas worth communicating and taking a stand on. They didn’t need to mention climate change at all if they wanted to just show up and play AB but it appears as if they are incorporating the crisis big time into the visuals/message of the show. I liked the Es Devlin quote in a recent article that communal spaces of the future like the Sphere are worth investing in as part of a sustainable future. And I’m curious as to Edge’s comment about how they will somehow lower their carbon footprint with these shows…
At any rate, I love the song and hear all of this sort of stuff in Bono’s lyrics for it, though it does sound like the kind of stuff he could write in his sleep.
