The bands performed to inspire G8 leaders to take action to stop climate change at the upcoming G8 summit in Japan. The G8 countries, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, Italy, Russia, the United Kingdom and the United States, are meeting in Hokkaido, Japan from 7 to 9 July. G8 countries emit more than 40 percent of global carbon-dioxide emissions, despite being home to only 13 percent of the world’s population. Greenpeace asked musicians and festival fans to join an energy revolution to save the climate with 5 steps:1. A global treaty that cuts greenhouse gas emissions by more than half by 2050;2. Renewable energy supplying over half the world's power by 2050;3. Laws that dramatically improve global energy efficiency, from light bulbs to automobiles;4. Powering the world with as little coal as possible and no nuclear power;5. End climate-destroying deforestation.
