Poetry of music: Save the Earth, with a few of our friends…
Can one song change the world? Paul McCartney, Jon Bon Jovi, Fergie, and others are finding out.
You’ve probably never hung out on the moon.
But if you were to, that aerial view of Earth would surely get you thinking. It puts everything into perspective.
You’d probably be thinking: Huh, the Earth kind of looks like a little marble from here. Or, whoa, that little blue marble is home to everyone I’ve ever known — and everyone I haven’t.
When you take time to zoom out to see the bigger picture of the world, you realize that we all have one important thing in common: our home.
It’s that thinking that has some of the world’s most popular musicians coming together to sing about the home we all share and one major problem it’s facing: climate change.
Ahead of the Paris Climate Change Conference in December, superstars from Paul McCartney to Colbie Caillat to Sean Paul to Fergie are calling on our world leaders to protect our Earth. You can join them.
“Every time the song is purchased, streamed, or shared, the royalties go directly towards the efforts of Friends of the Earth to keep fossil fuels in the ground and lower carbon emissions, and to the work of the U.N. Foundation to inspire international action on climate change.”
A song that earns royalties for the Earth?! That’s gotta be a first.
It’s too easy to get caught up talking about our differences. What if we started talking about our biggest similarity instead?
We may just be able to help reverse climate change. Together!
