The UNFCCC Newsroom presents a new entry in our special section Climate Song for Paris COP 21, which was kindly submitted by Climate Man. The song CO2 Society was written and recorded to raise awareness about the urgent need to act on climate change.

Listen to CO2 Society:

Send us your Climate Song for Paris COP21

Are you an amateur or professional singer, and do you care deeply about climate change? Then be part of the global movement in support of a meaningful new universal climate change agreement to be concluded in Paris in December (COP 21/CMP 11). Send us your climate songs to newsroom@unfccc.int so we can spread the word in the run-up to the meeting.

The song would need to be already posted online in a sharable format so that we can link to it (as a sound file or video or embedded on a website) and we would ask for a short paragraph about how it was made and what the song means for you.

CO2 Society


CO2 society, I will not play your game
you tried to hypnotize me and empty out my brain
and all you stupid arguments are really all the same
We've been too long living with this shame

We need an end to CO2 release,
we deserve the climate actions that's for real
so we can see straight in our children's eyes, proud and free of shame

CO2 society it's time for you to go
we've seen enough of your empty pointless show
you came with wealth and glamor, but that was long ago
and now your tatty times are through

CO2 society, it's time for you to leave
to spare our children's children's children from what else would be
cause you're wasting their future, degree by degree
we don't need your climate catastrophe

We need an end to CO2 release, we deserve the climate actions that's for real
so we can see straight in our children's eyes, proud and free of shame
