Anyone can pretend to be a climate activist. Just hit repost and send a signal to your followers what you stand for. Or eat vegetarian or drive a Prius.
Much harder to be a climate activist. You have to be stubborn in this culture. Pursuing a goal each and every day. Most importantly ignoring what many of us were taught at such a young age at school–to be compliant.
Bending the culture towards a more just world, you can’t be half in doing something like that. It’s serious work.
And it the same when we are talking about artists too.
