Better Keep It Clean

SONG: Fracking and pipelines both are hazardous to our drinking water and our health. Arsenic, tar sands, benzene – if you get this stuff in your water, it won’t get clean. This is the doo-wap version of fracking chemistry.

YOU’VE GOT TO BEND

A SONG ABOUT LETTING GO OF FOSSIL FUELS: Inspired by 350.org, Harvard University students and alumni have joined the movement for an intelligent response to our climate catastrophe.

I Don’t Need Another War

SONG: The U.S. government’s thirst for military interventions around the world is driven strongly by commercial interests, and is utterly beyond democratic control.

Real People Have Heart

SONG: The US Supreme Court’s catastrophic “Citizens United” decision in 2010 created the dangerous fictions that “Corporations are people” and “money is speech”. Any child can tell the difference between a person and a corporation, but our courts apparently need some help with their discernment.
