Songs dedicated to the protection of planet earth.
Song #1 “Are You a Science Denier?“ – I guess anyone that should be asking this question would never do so, but there are some people who have been reluctant to speak up and now’s the time, for the sake of future generations and our planet, to do it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kr9RM9DArD0&list=PLD31BC21FB0FC09BF&index=36
Song #2 “For a Hundred Dollars” – A song from the early 80s that asks “Do you think adding a hundred dollars to the cost of a car is worth preventing the death of thousands due to air pollution?”
Song #3 “Until This Planet’s Green” – An anthem for protecting the environment from the catastrophic damage precipitated by some human behavior. “We won’t let you die in the hands of greed. We will help you until this planet’s green.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SqqnNxFtoIU&list=PLD31BC21FB0FC09BF&index=21&t=31s
Song #4 “Lake Placid” – In the 80s, scientists discovered that the death of a lot of trees and lakes in the Adirondacks was being caused by acid rain. This acid rain was a byproduct of the smoke discharged from coal powered electrical stations and this song tried to bring attention to this.
Song #5 “Yacouba – The Village Fool” – An environmental song about how important it is sometimes to look at things differently so we can find new solutions. Yacouba Sawadogo did just that and he helped to hold back the desert from taking his farm and those of his neighbors. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ciH48jYmPyo&index=17&list=PLOyRYerTUWm0DE4ISRsl4aW5VXvcEWoaf
Song #6 “Who’s Laughing Now?” – There are a lot of people who are laughing at the science of climate change and the effects of human behavior. This song is a gentle reminder that perhaps we should listen more carefully to what the research is telling us. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9f6TGn8mz04&index=12&list=PLOyRYerTUWm0DE4ISRsl4aW5VXvcEWoaf
Song #7 “The Mother Earth Destruction Blues” – One of the bounciest, foot tapping songs about Mother Earth’s destruction that you’ll ever hear. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=egVWHpzWujI&list=PLD31BC21FB0FC09BF&index=23
