Bruce Cockburn | Climate Control Center for the World…

Heard the news today (Oh Boy!) about a huge piece of the ICE SHELF Breaking off near Canada’s Arctic… Remember when you were first warned about climate “change” – Global WARMING – RAIN FOREST? – That was Twenty YEARS ago!!


Canadian BRUCE COBURN’s “If A Tree Falls…” – from his 1989 album “Big Circumstance”

After hearing this song for the hundredth time I’m still speechless. Stunningly fine guitarist, astonishingly exquisite songwriter.

The more i learn about consumers the less i want to. As far as extinction of the human species i say why not but they should be made to clean up their mess before they (we) leave 🙂

Lyrics:

Rain forest
Mist and mystery
Teeming green
Green brain facing lobotomy
Climate control center for the world
Ancient cord of coexistence
Hacked by parasitic greedhead scam –
From Sarawak to Amazonas
Costa Rica to mangy B.C. hills –
Cortege rhythm of falling timber.

What kind of currency grows in these new deserts,
These brand new flood plains?

If a tree falls in the forest does anybody hear?
If a tree falls in the forest does anybody hear?
Anybody hear the forest fall?

Cut and move on
Cut and move on
Take out trees
Take out wildlife at a rate of species every single day
Take out people who’ve lived with this for 100,000 years –
Inject a billion burgers worth of beef –
Grain eaters – methane dispensers.

Through thinning ozone,
Waves fall on wrinkled earth –
Gravity, light, ancient refuse of stars,
Speak of a drowning –
But this, this is something other.
Busy monster eats dark holes in the spirit world
Where wild things have to go
To disappear
Forever

If a tree falls in the forest does anybody hear?
If a tree falls in the forest does anybody hear?
Anybody hear the forest fall?

Reading the comments gives a little insight into the public consciousness and so far it’s pretty bleak. – Think we have ANOTHER 20 years? I don’t think so…

Sad but true. Human nature is so short sighted and self-destructive.

Granted, right before we started freakin about global warming we were freakin because all indicaters were that we were entering another ice age? Remember that? That is what scientists in the 70s and early 80s were on about. And did you know that the northwest passage was open (as in unfrozen) in the thirties. there just weren’t any satilites about to snap images of it. Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying there is no global warming, not by anymeans. It is real. i would just like to see more rational objective conversation concerning it. The point I try to get across to folks is, regardless if one believes in GW (I don’t mean Bush) there is only so much stuff this planet can provide and if we continue consuming at the pace we do now our children will be SOL.
