Anthem for Climate Change – Video (The Beds are Burning)
Climate change is the greatest humanitarian challenge facing mankind today. But it is a challenge as well which has a grave injustice at its heart. It is the major developed economies of the world which contribute the overwhelming majority of global greenhouse emissions. But it is the poorer and least developed nations that are hit hardest by its impact.
“By downloading ‘Beds Are Burning’ for free from major music download platforms on the internet, people from around the world will be adding their names to this growing global petition – joining the campaign for climate justice and becoming a climate ally.
“This will be the first time ever that a musical petition has been created to demand change from our world leaders. I believe it can become the Band Aid for the internet generation. Together, we can create such a noise that our leaders will not be able to ignore it when they meet in Copenhagen this December to agree a new post-Kyoto climate agreement.”
