An upbeat song about a topic impacting nearly every living organism on Earth. Great Country flavor mixed with a lot of truth – and even a dash of political sarcasm. A highly unique voice carries the melody – a voice you will want to hear again and again – as unique as Adam Levine’s and Ed Sheeran’s.
I wrote this song during 2016 and had it professionally recorded in April 2017 before the Trump Administration backed out of the Paris agreement – thus making the song somewhat prophetic. I have studied the Climate Change issue a great deal, and have been trained to be a speaker/presenter by the Climate Reality Project.
My goal in writing the song was to bring about an awareness of the Climate Change issue – hopefully encouraging conversations about it, and acceptance of the scientific findings. As Neal deGrasse Tyson stated – this is “Objective” science at this point – meaning it is true whether we believe it or not.
Climate Change is both a concern and an opportunity at the same time. Similar to the industrial revolution, climate change is creating an energy revolution – and fossil fuels are being phased out in favor of renewable energy. This is projected to create a lot of jobs as there is so much to do – and it makes economic sense. It is now cheaper to fix the problem than to continue doing business as usual.
Fossil fuels no longer have a monopoly on transportation – electric cars and fuel cells are here and are becoming more popular. Utilities are no longer monopolies – individuals and businesses can generate their own power with solar panels. Changes in agriculture are turning agricultural practices that have been used for 150 years, upside down. Large agricultural chemical manufacturers are racing to figure out ways to support the changes that are taking place.
