How are these 85 artists saving the Earth?

Take the cue from Tik Tok Pilipinas advocates Miriam Quiambao, Bianca Gonzales, Marc Nelson, Diether Ocampo, Rico Blanco, Alessandra de Rossi, Tuesday Vargas and Chef Rolando Laudico.

The United Nations Climate Change Conference kicks off in Copenhagen on December 7, and 85 of the Philippines' artists– musicians, actors, directors, designers, writers, chefs and more–have banded together to call on developed countries to cut their carbon emissions and help developing countries cope with the impacts of climate change.

Advocates for Tik Tok Pilipinas, part of the international campaign for climate action dubbed Tck tck tck, include actresses Alessandra de Rossi and Tuesday Vargas; TV personalities Miriam Quiambao, Bianca Gonzales and Marc Nelson; musicians Rico Blanco and Cooky Chua; and Chef Rolando Laudico.

Tik Tok Pilipinas is set to hold a 12-hour concert on December 12 called Tik Tok Rok: Rock for Climate Action to coincide with the Copenhagen conference, which is scheduled to run until December 18. The concert, which will feature 50 artists, will be from 3 p.m. to 3 a.m. at the Marikina Riverbanks Amphitheater. Expect the artists to perform Tik Tok's anthem, "No Time To Waste," penned by Noel Cabangon and recorded by 52 performers.

Marc Nelson says, "If rich countries can give $1 trillion to bail out banks, why can't they give $150 billion to poor countries that are losing their livelihoods because of climate change? Copy this message and add to the noise calling for rich countries to act responsibly."
