The Folk Today Project “Earth Anthem 2017”
It’s global warming decision year. Help us spread the word.

2017 is the deadline that experts have locked in. Beyond then, irreversible extreme weather events would begin. The time to talk has clearly passed. The time to act is now. It’s time to roll up our sleeves, get to work. We’ve got to save the world.

Earth Anthem is an important song because it can help galvanize the public into action when that is urgently needed.

Now’s the time. Help us launch this song and video.


Who are The Folk Today Project?

The Folk Today Project were formed by Neil Pharazyn, a songwriter living in New Zealand. Neil isn’t a performing musician so he’s brought together a group of skilled musicians working incognito as session musicians. That’s The Folk Today Project. Thanks too to Rick Chudacoff of Nashville. He critiques Neil’s songs.

We hoped our leaders would do the job, but hope has been misplaced.
They’ve talked and talked and talked and talked, forever saving face.

One cries poor. One disagrees. “It’s all a crying shame.”
“We’re quite small.” “We need to grow.” They claim and counter-claim.

We’ve wasted over 20 years.
Let’s not waste 20 more.
Roll your sleeves up.
Get to work.
We’ve got to save the world.

So many years, so little done. I call that a disgrace,
while deserts grow and seas invade and storm clouds set the pace?

The time to talk has clearly passed. The time to act is now.
Our voices, votes and spending power can let our leaders know…

…we’ve wasted over 20 years.
Let’s not waste 20 more.
Roll your sleeves up.
Get to work.
We’ve got to save the world.

Plant more forests. Use less oil.
Leave that coal in the ground.
Give more incentives for renewable energy.
We can do more of these right now.

And 20 17’s the deadline experts have locked in.
Beyond then, irreversible extreme weather events would begin.

We’ve wasted over 20 years.
Let’s not waste 20 more.
Roll your sleeves up.
Get to work.
We’ve got to save the world.
Roll your sleeves up.
Get to work.
We’ve got to save the world.
