painful that I got beta blockers from the doctor, but I was trembling
so I stopped them after a week.
- I'm someone who's
quite verbal, but some things are literally unsayable and remain so.

from you, you can't function. I didn't do anything.
- I haven't had choices.
Post-Live Aid was a nightmare. I became ubiquitous, and that's been
a death blow to my musical ambitions.

of plans, we just need to act. We must have more ODA. When we cut aid,
we take food from the mouths of the starving.
- Why must we behave
like this? Africa is the second biggest emerging market after China.
Its got more democratic countries than Asia.

the G8? Where is your credibility? This is a human question, not a tactical
question. We are tired of seeing people that die of hunger!
- A reason why this
crisis is so serious is the fact that we left 50% of the world outside
the system. How is it possible to live on 2 dollars a day?

the agents of change in our world are the politicians. Otherwise you're
always outside the tent pissing in.

of the hydrocarbon economy will be replaced by clean renewables

trading will be a major industry in the near future, and green
jobs are the fastest expanding new source of employment.

to capture carbon could become a new cash crop for African farmers if
the right framework is agreed in Copenhagen.
