Janez Potocnik has pledged to write a song and perform it in front of 1,000 people for Earth Hour
So today is the day of reckoning. No, it's not the day when we find out if Justin Bieber really will go into rehab, or if a flying saucer crashed into Roswell after all.
No, today is the day we find out if Europe's Environment Commissioner will write and perform his own song in front of 1,000 people to celebrate WWF's Earth Hour.
The sparky Slovenian commissioner, Janez Potocnik, turned down the offer to dye his hair green in support of the 'I will if you will' energy-saving initiative, and instead chose to flex his creative and vocal muscles.
There's only one way to find out if Potocnik can carry a tune. If 1,000 people promise to stop using their cars for a week, he'll write them a ditty and perform it at a charity gig in Brussels.
But time is running out. The last day for votes is today, and, at the time of writing, he'd only accrued 360 pledges, even with the Tank's humble support. But we don't even have a car, so we're going to head next door to find someone else's wheels to let the tyres down on (this is a joke – it wasn't us guv'nor).
So now the question remains: what will the commissioner do if he fails to hit 1,000 signatures? One option is to give up his own car for a week – or he could always provide us with a rendition of the Australian Federal Minister's charming carbon tax song. Who knows, it might even help prop up the bloc's ailing carbon markets.
