Sustainability the Musical!

Dance from the world we live in into one with a future



“We created a way of raising standards of living that we can’t possibly

pass on to our children. We have been getting rich by depleting all our

natural stocks – water, hydrocarbons, forests, rivers, fish, and arable

land – and not by generating renewable flows. You can get this burst of

wealth that we have created from this rapacious behavior, but it has to

collapse, unless adults stand up and say, ‘This is a Ponzi scheme.’ We

have not generated real wealth, we are destroying a livable climate. Real

wealth is something you can pass on in a way that others can enjoy.”

All I want for Christmas is a future.  It turns out that the 99% can
afford a better world for ourselves even without convincing the 1%.  I
wanted to share the anti-consumerist holiday carol I wrote this year as my
personal contribution to the Occupy Christmas effort.  Please share this
holiday message, I want to reach as many people with it as I can this

Yes, I know this isn't a press request, but I wasn't sure who to send it
to at your site.  Thanks for your fine work.
