A Poet’s Plea to save our Planet | IN-Q | TED Institute

1,927

Spoken word artist IN-Q poetically captures the urgency of climate change in his original spoken word poem, “Movie Stars.” He urges us to take ownership of the Earth and the damage we’ve committed, and ends with a call to action: “One little dot is all that we’ve got,” says IN-Q. “We just forgot that none of it’s ours; we just forgot that all of it’s ours.”
