David Evans, aka the Edge, is the guitar player for Irish rock band U2, the most eco- and politically-correct band in history. U2 defined politically-correct standards of rock and roll.
Now the Edge wants to build a home on the soaring landscape above Malibu beach. It’s got all the correct environmental bells and whistles, too, the Edge says.
“We just had this dream of building a house that was in perfect harmony with these hills,” Mr. Evans said. “We see it as something that could be a bench mark of sustainability.”
But in the ever exacting bite of karma, a group of green eco-warriors are fighting the Edge’s new home. The Santa Monica Mountain Conservancy and the rich folks who live below are trying to stop the project, which includes, Gaia forbid, a road.
Maybe sustainability and environmental awareness are now just code words that help rich people keep the Irish out of their neighborhoods.
