You know about climate change. But did you know about glacial profiling?
That's just one indignity that Brother Earth has to deal with as he heats up, argues Boots Riley, the frontman of hip-hop group The Coup, and Josh Healey of the environmental justice group Movement Generation in a new video posted ahead of this Sunday's People's Climate March in New York City.
Boots, playing Brother Earth, warns about impending climate catastrophes if people don’t start agitating for action. "Something's gotta change," he says. "I've been sending ya'll superstorms and mega-typhoons and all kinds of warnings, but ya'll keep ignoring me."
"Help a brother out," he implore viewers.
