FuelChange: A Rap Anthem

April 3, 2019

Description:

Green For All, in collaboration with Big Picture Anthems, is thrilled to announce the release of our #FuelChange Anthem – a song and music video seeking to inspire and help mobilize a movement of people and resources for zero-emission cars, trucks, and buses in neighborhoods across America. Transportation is the #1 source of greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S., and communities of color are most impacted by pollution from dirty cars due to their proximity to busy freeways and highways, diesel trucks on their way to the port, and diesel buses. The #FuelChange Anthem song and video features Black artists, Latino activists, and Filipino youth, who help tell the story of transportation pollution from the perspective of directly impacted communities, and connects the dots between transportation, climate, and health in a way that resonates with people’s daily lives.

    I’m too old for rap. I’m an old jazzer…

    Chai Jing’s documentary Under the Dome includes a video of her trip to check out how LA was dealing with its vehicle pollution problem. At one point she covers an emissions-compliance checkpoint near Irvine California. One of the stopped trucks fails compliance, and the Mexican driver with a $4000 monthly salary (and 6 kids) has to pay a $1000 fine.

    Once again, it’s the poor vs. the poorer.
