New Music Video Raises Awareness on Climate Change

Five prominent environmental groups have joined together with Canadian musician Gaiaisi to release a music video and raise awareness on one of the most critical issues facing the human race—climate change.

With extreme weather events becoming the new normal, global temperatures reaching record highs and a continued streak of climate science denial, the music video is an effort to break through public apathy and pessimism to galvanize action on climate change. 

The video is a dramatic global tour showing everything from the devastation caused by wildfires and deforestation, to the huge footprint of industrial agriculture and impacts of our fossil-fueled economy. The video captures the struggles of activists from all continents fighting for action on the climate crisis and highlights solutions, including sustainable transportation, permaculture and renewable energy.

The song, Change the Earth, is the result of a collaboration between Gaiaisi350.orgAl Gore’s Climate Reality ProjectGreenpeace, Rainforest Action Network and World Wildlife Fund.
