Save the Earth Song

Save the Earth Song.

by James Brown; illustrations by Jo Tronc

Poet James Brown explores the perils of inertia and disassociation when it comes to climate change. Implicit to the poem is a fundamental question: Why do so many people do nothing when we know the stakes are so high? This is a companion text to recent level 4 journal articles about climate change.
