Thom Yorke on Climate Change: 'It Kept Me Awake at Night'

The Radiohead frontman performed a DJ set on the Greenpeace float amid climate change demonstrators marching through London's streets. The event was timed around the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference, which begins Monday (Nov. 30) in Paris.

On Friday, Yorke signed an open letter urging world leaders to reach a deal at the conference. Others who signed the letter include Björk, David Bowie and Damon Albarn, Stereogum reports.

French magazine Télérama recently published a dialogue between Yorke and columnist George Monbiot about the issue at large and how it had affected them personally.

"Initially, it kept me awake at night,” Yorke admitted, during a discussion about Radiohead’s green-friendly touring and reducing his carbon footprint. “[It] sounds really stupid -- especially when my second child arrived, in 2004, I got unhealthily obsessed with it. But when I started to get involved in doing something about it, that helped me a lot. But I always have the impression that I am not doing enough at all.”
