Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda made a Spotify playlist about climate change announcing the 16-song compilation called “Climb It, Change Is Real” via Twitter:
It kicks off with R.E.M.’s classic “It’s the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine),” followed up by Nelly’s “Hot In Herre,” and features tracks by OutKast, Wyclef Jean, Radiohead, and Death Cab for Cutie. It even includes Michael Jackson’s “Earth Song.” We’ll have it on shuffle all day at Grist’s New York-area branch office.
Miranda’s effort to spotlight climate change has some fans hoping he’ll do more than just a modern-day mixtape. “Someday @Lin_Manuel will write a musical about science,” tweeted NASA climate scientist Kate Marvel, “and then everyone will believe us.”
