Pharrell: ‘Live Earth’ concert to press for climate action
DAVOS, Switzerland (AP) -- Pharrell Williams says he'll have all of humanity singing together at a worldwide concert June 18 to fight global warming.
The pop superstar is teaming with Nobel Peace Prize-winner Al Gore to produce a "Live Earth" concert on seven continents to build support for a U.N. climate pact in Paris among more than 190 nations in December.
On a stage Wednesday at the World Economic Forum in Davos with producer Kevin Wall, Williams said "we literally are going to have humanity harmonize all at once" in support of a binding international accord to limit heat-trapping greenhouse gas emissions.
He said the purpose is "to have a billion voices with one message - to demand climate action now" from governments rather than to continue the world's reliance on fossil fuels.
