What if it depends on me and you to fix the climate crisis?
Why I wrote this song
I wrote the song as I was inspired by all the talk of climate change, global warming and the environmental problems the world is facing.
In the song I am asking the question ‘what if it all depends on me and you to fix this problem?’.
I care greatly about the issue because I have children and they, and their children, will inherit the problems we are creating today. It is frustrating to watch the climate crisis unfold and so much of it can be averted if we all worked together. Instead Governments play politics and issues get ignored.
Everyone on this planet needs to do our part and everyone needs to take this issue seriously. Music is a powerful tool to raise awareness of any issue and, I hope the song I have written ‘What If?’ contributes in some way to bring focus to the plight of our planet.
