Former Beatle Paul McCartney, along with a motley crew of singers, appear in the new music video for the climate change charity single, “Love Song to the Earth.”

The video dropped last week on Rolling Stone.com, and along with a white-clad McCartney, a host of eco-conscious celebs also appear, including Colbie Caillat and Nastasha Bedingfield.

The stars are surrounded by lush greenery and an obligatory time lapse footage of flowers blooming in the Trey Fanjoy-directed video. There is also a bald eagle flying around and butterflies and clouds. And, of course, what song would be complete without Sean Paul throwing down some rap to punctuate its importance?

Sure, the lyrics are a little too-on-the-nose (“Looking down from up on the moon, you’re a tiny blue marble,” the group sings. “Who would have thought the ground we stand on / could be so fragile”) and the video itself looks like a giant screen saver, however the song’s message is on point. The track, which was released on iTunes in September, was written to raise climate change awareness and debuted at the UN conference in Paris earlier this month.

Proceeds from the star-studded production, which also features voices from the unseen Jon Bon Jovi, Sheryl Crow and Fergie, will go to the environmental nonprofit Friends of the Earth and the UN Foundation.

“Big decisions will be made this week, so I am doing everything I can to make sure governments sign up to an agreement, which can protect our planet,” McCartney said in a statement ahead of the international conference. “Now is the time to act.”

The song may not be the next “We Are the World,” or even “Do They Know It’s Christmas,” but its intention is good.

News outlets are abuzz with the promise of new vegan products, celebs, and services and how that is somehow a fresh affirmation that our world is one turn closer to being fully free from animal use.

What About: “No-Kill” Eggs?

The reason for these advancements is not a sense of justice – because that can only mean going vegan – but is primarily driven by economics.

Vegandale Brewery offers the ultimate vegan night out

This brewpub helps veganism shed its stay-home-and-eat-tofu stereotype.

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
