No this isn't an MJ post - but it does involve similar sentiments to that song.
Do you believe in climate change? CAUSE IT DOES EXIST, Y'ALL.
Them peops at Oxfam have sorted out a masssssssive line-up to raise the awareness. YES THE GODDAMN POLAR ICE CAPS ARE MELTING, and it might seem as remote to you as that, but it DOES AFFECT US. And even more so in some of the poorest parts of the world. Damn, poverty and the apocalypse at your doorstep - not so cool, huh? So how's about getting informed through song and dance and other handy learning tools?
This year, Oxjam's aim is to help create awareness and raise funds for the fight against the devastating effects climate change is already having in other parts of the planet.
Here's the line-up so far for you with some wicked people to check out, including our friends over at 88 Days, Afrikan Boy, David E. Sugar, Isa GT, Joy Orbison, O. Children and Toddla T amongst many...
