Andrew Revkin, The New York Times, sings of carbon

The New York Times' Dot Earth journalist has written hundreds of thousands of words in the last 30 years. But some things are better said in song than on paper or on a screen. The song is featured on Revkin's new (and first) CD, A Very Fine Line.

"Liberated carbon, it'll spin your wheels. Liberated carbon, it'll nuke your meals. Liberated carbon, it'll turn your night to day. Come on and liberate some carbon, babe, it's the American way."
