Vanessa Posted December 19, 2006 Share Posted December 19, 2006 Yeah, they're in the new Rolling Stone issue. It's a very short article, and there's really not anything new to know, but I thought I'd tell you all.Click here for the scan (credit: Whydoyouwanthim)Green Day Go Green Green Day have teamed up with the environmental group Natural Resources Defense Council to create Move America Beyond Oil, a campaign aimed at mobilizing young people. "Young punk fans sometimes get a bad rap as not being politically aware," says NRDC coordinator Jordan Kessler. "I think Green Day fans really care about these issues and want to be out there speaking out." At greendaynrdc.com, fans can check out a video of the band discussing global warming and railing against oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. The site also contains conservation tips and a petition urging President Bush to Mandate that federal agengies use hybrid cars, among other initiatives. "The current administration is now forced to deal with a Democratic-led Congress, which we are hopeful will create positive change." says Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong, "Our aim with the NRDC is to encourage people to become educated on environmental issues and realize they have a voice to call for protective legislation."
