Joni Mitchell's Big Yellow Taxi is arguably one of the most well-known environmental protest songs in American music. Now, in the 21st century, protest songs, specifically related to the environment, are on the margin.
This song addresses the vulnerable bird, bee, monarch butterfly, and other non-human populations put at risk by climate change and pollution. Only by addressing denial in politics and shifting to an ecological politics of compassion can we create the sustainable world that all species deserve!
