    Michael Jackson Wanted This Is It Shows To Warn About Global Warming
    The name 'This Is It' was a message about saving the Earth, music supervisor Michael Bearden explains

    Even when the chips were down for Michael Jackson, his fans came out in droves to stand by their man. So when Jackson was planning his This Is It concerts at London's O2 arena, those loyal supporters where at the forefront of his mind.



    "All artists have egos, but MJ was just probably the kindest, sweetest artist I've ever worked with," Michael Bearden, the music supervisor for the concerts, told MTV News. "He wasn't onstage for him, he was onstage for his fans. He loved his fans. Loved, loved, loved his fans, and so everything he did was for them, he would say to me, 'We need ... production value. You can't cheat the audience. You can't cheat the fans.' So, he didn't have an ego as far as that, 'cause he would always give and give for the fans."

    Jackson intended these concerts not only to serve as a thank-you note to those fans, but also to continue to spread his message of love, Bearden said. He wanted the world to know that this may be it when it came to seeing him tour, and also that if we don't start paying attention to the world around us now, then it will be it for the Earth too.

    " 'This Is It' — obviously people equate that to the last tour," Bearden said of the tour name's dual meaning. "His passion was to save the world save the planet, to heal the world. ...

    "He would say to me, 'If we don't stop doing what we're doing with global warming and the Earth and how we're treating each other ... it could be irreversible in four years or five years or something like that,' " Bearden explained. "So, 'This Is It' meant to him that this is it: We don't have much longer to save the planet, to heal the world."

    Michael's message was not just about healing the planet but about healing ourselves,our souls, our spirits about loving one another and harmonising across the globe and the end of global war

    Oh I'm sorry admin, I may have misunderstood/misled. I haven't seen the movie This is it, I don't want to finance Sony/AEG either, but it's more than that for me. So long as I feel that MJ may have been murdered and the this is it 'movie' is a part of that, then I couldn't bare to sit through it. I have seen some of the clips/youtubes and those have disturbed me enough as it is.

    What I meant about the message, was that I have aways believed Michael's message to have meant more than a warning about global warming alone and that those who are saying it was only about that, are ignoring many other things that he has said. Whether that is intentional ignoring or not, I don't know, but I suspect it might be.

    That said, I am coming to the mind, that there was never going to be an actual tour anyway and, that the movie was the plan.

    What words can Michael actually be heard speaking himself in the movie in relation to this, have they been transcribed and posted anywhere?

    But whatever the case, His message was and always has been much broader and more in keeping with what lotusflower said in my mind.

    That said, I do believe climate change is a major issue and a huge topic in itself.
