In honor of Rolling Stone’s issue on the climate crisis, we asked artists to deliver messages about what they, their governments and ordinary people can do to resist the threat of climate change. From England to Jamaica to the United States, we hear from artists and activists around the world talking about what we can do locally, globally and everything in between.
Australian artist and singer Sharna “Sshh” Liguz spends a lot of time in the studio. She released a new song called “Extra Extra ft. BNegao,” and a new band with partner Zak Starkey called Sshh the Band. (The two also recently launched two new record labels with BMG: Trojan Jamaica and Trojan Brazil.) And now she can feel a little more environmentally proactive whenever she records new music.
“We had solar panels installed in the UK studio. We are now a completely carbon neutral studio,” says Sshh. “The amount of music we have been able to produce using solar panels is impressive.”
But Sshh also argues that individual actions are not enough when it comes to climate change. “The governments of the world need to pull their finger and work together and find a solution. Because we are one world; we are a race; we are the human race. And we have a chance, but we have to fight. It is now.”
