GRANNY GAGGLE SONG


Oh, we're a gaggle of Grannies,

Urging you off of your fannies,

We want to be heard, It isn't absurd,

Climate change is real!


So, join this gaggle of Grannies,

Get up off of your fannies,

Let's put the deniers feet to the fires,

Climate...Change...is Real!

OUR CHILDREN'S TRUST ANTHEM
Tune:  "Our Country Tis of Thee"
Lyrics:  Raging Grannies Eugene

Parents and friends, we must
Earn back Our Children's Trust,
And save our land.
All people must be brave,
This is our chance to save
Our coastlines from the waves
The time's at hand.

We must make promises,
Shun Doubting Thomases,
Clean up the air.
A dirty atmosphere
Kills all that we hold dear,
We have a job that is quite clear:
Protect our air.

Our children's lives depend
On laws that will defend
Our planet's health.
Let's challenge corporate greed,
Give up what we don't need,
Together we will then succeed.

"STORY TIME"


Nathan - Alaska

FEBRUARY 8, 2019


Late last night, the Juliana plaintiffs asked the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to stop the federal government from issuing leases and mining permits for extracting coal on federal public lands, leases for offshore oil and gas exploration and extraction activities, and federal approvals for new fossil fuel infrastructure while the court considers the government’s interlocutory appeal in Juliana v. United States, the constitutional climate lawsuit brought by 21 young Americans.

The purpose of this “preliminary injunction” is to stop the status quo from worsening and stop irreparable harm from occurring in the time it takes for the case to be heard by the Ninth Circuit.While the government delays this case with its interlocutory appeal, we will not allow the government to continue to worsen the climate crisis and harm young people. We continue to do everything in our power to protect the rights of these youth.

THE CLIMATE SONG


We've got to wake up, We've got to wise up,

We've got to open our eyes and do it

Now!  Now!  Now!

We've got to build a better future,

And we need to start right now!
