Lyrics to Is That What It Will Take?

When every mountain peak is bare
Is that what it will take?
When the last glacier disappears
Is that what it will take?
For us to wake up
And save this world that we share?
Or will we tell our children’s children
We just didn’t care?
When the coral reefs are lost
Is that what it will take?
When rising oceans flood the coasts
Is that what it will take?
For us to wake up
And save this world that we share?
Or will we tell our children’s children
We just didn’t care?
When we’ve waited ’till we’ve reached the threshold
Is that what it will take?
When we’re ashamed to look at our world
Is that what it will take?
For us to wake up
And save this world that we share?
Or will we tell our children’s children
We just didn’t care?

CLIMATE CHANGE FACTS
97% of climate change scientists agree that the Earth is warming and that humans are primarily responsible.

The Earth is warming at a rate unprecedented in the past 1,300 years.

Fifteen of the sixteen warmest years recorded on planet Earth have occurred since 2001.

The first 6 months of 2016 were the hottest on record.

Glaciers are retreating everywhere on the planet–the Alps, Himalayas, Andes, Rockies, Africa.

Glacier National Park now has 25 glaciers. In 1910 it had 150.

The Arctic ice is disappearing at 13.3% per decade. By 2040 or sooner there may be no summer ice sheet.

Greenland is losing 300 gigatons of ice per year.

Global sea levels have risen 7 inches in the last century. They are now rising at twice the century’s rate.

Projections indicate a sea level rise of between 3 to 6 feet by the year 2100.

100 million people live within 3 feet of sea level.

Carbon dioxide levels are now the highest in 650,000 years.

Extreme weather events–heat waves, forest fires, extreme rainfalls and floods, are increasing all over the globe.

At this time, the possibility of mass extinction is very real.
