Musical activism: new track aims to speak truth to power

You need to hear this:

The musician behind the track – KRANTZ – has told me a little about the track and his reasons for making it.

He said, “12 YEARS is about the disastrous 12, almost 13, years the Tories have been in power.

“I believe it is vital to remind people of this fact so we have a better chance of implementing real change and removing the Tories in the next election.

“Music has always had the power to change hearts and minds, therefore I wanted to produce powerful and memorable songs using the dialogue of those publicly speaking truth to power to help them widen their reach.” In this case, the dialogue was from LBC Radio’s James O’Brien.

“I believe this alternative musical collaborative approach has the potential to reach people who would otherwise be apathetic or inaccessible, therefore increasing the opportunity to plant some very necessary seeds.”

Future tracks include another with words by James O’Brien, along with tracks featuring Bernie Sanders, his friend and ally Nina Turner, and Gary Stevenson. I’ve heard part of the next one and I think it will be even better than this.

International watchdog says we all have 12 years to tackle climate change

Every little helps: But don’t be fooled – these personal measures to cut your carbon footprint are tiny compared to what governments can do. Will they do anything, though?

We’ve all heard a lot of debate about whether climate change is real and whether it poses a significant threat.

Here’s the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) spelling it all out for us:

We (meaning national governments across the world) need to act without delay to prevent the destruction of coral reefs and stop sea levels rising by as much as ten centimetres. If that happened large parts of the world could become uninhabitable.

Within 12 years.

Are we all clear on this now?

The Tories are already saying the UK has the best record of any G20 country in attacking the causes of climate change.

Do you believe that?
