Paradise Keystone Pipeline by the Keystone Pipeline Kops Calls for Massive Protest and Petition Against Keystone XL Pipeline
APR 2013 - To protest the Keystone XL Pipeline and Fracking, the Keystone Pipeline Kops have come together to say "Halt!" to the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline, and recorded John Prine's great classic, "Paradise", with the lyrics updated for the times. We wanted the song to connect the trips to the outdoors we had as a child, and how we came to love the outdoors and become environmental activists to protect the rivers and woodlands we love so much. Because of the inevitable oil spills and the loss of wildlife and woodlands, as well as our air and water being poisoned, this song calls for a massive protest against the Keystone XL Pipeline, against the Tar Sands development, and against the dirty practice of Fracking. Check out the song below, and sign the JTMP petition on Change.org calling on President Obama to stop the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline. We are looking for 100,000 signatures, which we will then present to the White House, so please sign today! Also, start or join a discussion on this issue at our JTMP Facebook Site: www.Facebook.com/JusticeThroughMusic.

DEC 3, 2012 - LED light bulbs, which are the future, are now beginning to hit the market. There is still trouble finding them, I could not find any at Walmart, but Home Depot did have a few models. LED light bulbs are better than CFL (flourescent) for a number of reasons. Read more on JTMP Green here.
MAY 14, 2012 - I wrote this a few years back, and decided to bring it out of mothballs when we had the BP oil disaster in the Gulf in 2010. I put the capo on the the second fret, updated the lyrics, and filmed the video shots at Great Falls Park, Maryland. The song is called, "Rise Up", and I hope it can help inspire more people to "Love our Mother", and support sustainability. Go Green!
APR 25, 2012 - Musician activists performed at Earth Day 2012 on the National Mall here in DC last Sunday to promote a green and sustainable lifestyle. The Chad Hollister Band was there and had DC legend tenor sax player Ron Holloway blowin' sax for them. Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Dave Mason brought his guitar and great songs, along with Cheap Trick who played a few of their classics for the sparse but dedicated activists who braved the rain calling for better treatment of Mother Earth. JTMP asks our supporters to try and "Mobilize The Earth" and do one green act today. One can switch out and incandescent light bulb with an LED or a CFL, we can walk to the store today and bring a cloth bag. We all can do small things to try and be as green as possible.
