A VALENTINE TO THE EARTH

HUSTON, TX – A VALENTINE TO THE EARTH: Musician and tireless advocate for nature Robby Romero is taking his Project Protect educational initiative to school beginning today (Feb. 14), at the Taos Pueblo Day School. He will screen his film “Who’s Gonna Save You” and talk about climate change. Romero also is launching a White House petition-signing campaign calling for stronger environmental law.

Romero has spent the last year actively campaigning to raise awareness of the urgency of taking action in the face of climate change — and is obviously not slowing down now. The Apache musician, who was mentored by the late Dennis Hopper as a teen artist, has drawn other Native American celebrities into the Project Protect Awareness Campaign including Irene Bedard (“Pocahontas,” “Into the West”) who recorded a public service spot.

Asked if the world’s economic woes haven’t made it an even more difficult tast, Romero points to the devastation of severe weather tied to climate change — record-breaking hurricanes, blizzards, droughts, etc. — and says, “I think that the economy is one of the symptoms of climate change. I think it’s going to get worse if people don’t educate themselves about what’s happening.” He points out, “Indigenous people around the world are among the first to experience impact of climate change — far worse than what developed countries are experiencing.”

Who’s Gonna Save You

By Ardee Napolitano

SANTA FE, NM – “This change in the weather will burn us, then freeze,” sings Robby Romero, “there’s a point of no return; we’ve got to face reality. “Those are just some of the striking lyrics from “Who’s Gonna Save You,” the new single by Native Children’s Survival (NCS), of which Romero is founder. The song, which has been playing on Triple A radio stations around New Mexico since early August, tackles the alarming rate of climate change and how Indigenous Peoples are the first ones to be distraught by it.”

“The newly-released single accompanies a 10-minute “music picture,” a multimedia project that combines a variety of video clips, music and pictures that explore climate change’s effects in depth.”

“Thoughts from Hopi Elders, recording artists and street artists—including the infamously artsy Brit vandal Banksy—are also featured in the flick.”

“A prolific musician, Romero believes that today’s art—along with powerful boosts from social media and current technology—is a useful instrument in halting the spread of climate change and in preserving the rights of indigenous peoples…”

10 QUESTIONS WITH … ROBBY ROMERO

All Access Music GroupLOS ANGELES, CA – All Access: 1. You have been creating music for a few decades now; when did that evolve into the Native Children’s Survival organization?

Robby Romero: Following my teenage years playing the Taos Plaza and Hollywood nightclub scene, I founded NCS in 1989, in the aftermath of the then-world’s worst nuclear accident, the 26 April 1986 catastrophic Chernobyl disaster. Our first music video campaign, “Is It Too Late,” was broadcast around the world from the Kremlin, following President Gorbachev’s historical environmental speech at the 1990 Global Forum in Moscow and in 1991 on CNN’s “Earth Matters” program.
