Subject: RE: Where are all the green & climate songs
Barry,
Most of the 50s and 60s songs I recall were about nuclear testing - seem to remember 'What Have they Done To The Rain' and 'Strontium 90'
"Flowers" is anti-war rather than ecological, don't you think.
Peggy Seeger's Songbookbook gives
A Wonderful World, Use It Again, Maggie Went Green, Sellafield Child, Polonium 2-1-0, Plutonium Factor, The Invader and Wasteland Lullabye, - mostly about the effects of nuclear power
Ewan's
Nuclear Means Jobs
There are probably a few in New City Songster, but can't find them without clambering into the loft (new hip a problem at preent)
And that's it really - nowhere near enough

PS I'm sure there's a good song in the making about the three-eyed fish from The Simpsons.
