Eco-communities as a social vision

Eco-communities as a social vision
Egalitarian and ecological communities, like the pictured East Wind (www.eastwind.org), are very close to our vision of an ecological society

“Μπες στο κλίμα” (Enter the climate*) by Kostas Lebadas, performed by various, The Green Album WWF (2007)

Ποια υπερθέρμανση γεννάει
Ένα τέρας που ξυπνάει
Θα μας πνίξει θα μας φάει
Μπες στο κλίμα!

Ποια πλημμύρα μας τραβάει
Σε ένα ηφαίστειο που ξεσπάει
Δες χιονίζει μήνα Μάη
Μπες στο κλίμα!

Ξύπνα τη μνήμη σου
Ξέχνα τη φήμη σου
Παρ' την ευθύνη σου
Γι αυτή τη Γη που βουλιάζει
Σκέψου τα μέρη σου
Πες το στο ταίρι σου
Είναι στο χέρι σου
Ένα παιδί σου φωνάζει
Δείξε μου πόσο σε νοιάζει
Μπες στο κλίμα!

Κάθε μέρα που περνάει
Σαν αρρώστια προχωράει
Άλλο αστείο δε χωράει
Μπες στο κλίμα!

Ποιος στα αλήθεια κυβερνάει
Ποιος θυμάται ποιος ξεχνάει
Για ποιο μέλλον συζητάει
Μπες στο κλίμα!


Translation:

Learn which superheat is bearing
a rising monster
that will suffocate and eat us
Enter the climate*

Learn which flood is sweeping us away
to a volcano ready to detonate
Look! It's snowing on May
Enter the climate*

Wake your memory
Forget your fame
Take your responsibility
For this Earth that is sinking
Think of your country
Tell it to your partner
It’s in your hands
A child is shouting at you
Show me how you care about
Enter the climate*

Every day that passes
like disease is spreading
No more pretending
Enter the climate*

Who really governs?
Who thinks, who forgets?
For what future does he talk about?
Enter the climate*
