Hey there,

I like keeping up with who’s doing what about the climate crises, so I thought, “What can I do, personally?”

So I decided to write a song, a “call to action” to address the crisis.

I’m old, but after reading something in Bill McKibben’s “The Crucial Years” newsletter on SubStack, about how our kids are pissed off by promises and inaction, I took a couple of my old friends into the studio and recorded “We Were Thieves.” I entered it into NPR’s “Tiny Desk Contest,” and included subtitles.

It’s rock and roll from a 3-piece who’s ages total 212 years, but we wanted to do our bit. I’m hoping you will share the following link with your subscribers:


Thanks, and keep up the fight!
