Fifty years ago, when Marvin Gaye addressed climate change in his “Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology)” it was a tender and lyrical lament for our abused and beloved mother nature and our beautiful earth.

don’t say I didn’t warn ya
Eilish’s vision is post-apocalyptic, a doomsday-deluxe Mad Max kind of town, sung in a sultry, hushed, distant, and disembodied voice. The video has gruesome images of harm to a human body, an obvious stand-in for the pain humans are off-loading on and into the earth.
