Thanks to Harford County Climate Action member Jack Dettner for sharing this delightful video from the Carribean island nation of St. Lucia, creatively using music to popularize the urgency of climate action. Covering topics ranging from waste disposal to building code regulations, the catchy tune is performed by A-Listers from Saint Lucia’s calypso community including King Pep, Educator, Herbblack, Mr. Brown, Menell, Chocolate, and Ready. They have created a compelling rallying call to Saint Lucians which is relevant across the globe.
