Paul McCartney slams ‘climate deniers’ in New song – ‘Those who shout the loudest/May not always be the smartest’ – ‘People who deny climate change… I just think it’s the most stupid thing ever’
Paul McCartney slams Trump in new song…
A second song, “Despite Repeated Warnings,” goes one step further into political territory and directs a chastening comment in the direction of climate change deniers with the lyric: “Those who shout the loudest/May not always be the smartest.”
“People who deny climate change… I just think it’s the most stupid thing ever,” McCartney, reveals to the BBC.
“So, I just wanted to make a song that would talk about that and basically say, ‘Occasionally, we’ve got a mad captain sailing this boat we’re all on and he is just going to take us to the iceberg [despite] being warned it’s not a cool idea.’”
And just who could the “Mad Captain” be?
“Obviously it’s Trump,” McCartney says before adding, “but there’s plenty of them about. He’s not the only one.”
