Neil Young's New Website Is a One-Stop Primer on Going Green
Environmental activism has been a constant in Neil Young’s long career. As he continues to promote his 2015 album The Monsanto Years, he’s launched a new website that’s basically a one-stop shop for all your online environmental causes.
It’s called GoEarth.org, accompanied by the mantra, "It takes a village to keep the free world rockin’.” The new site is organized into a handful of green-friendly categories, including reversing climate change, organic agriculture, fighting for ecology, banning genetically modified organisms (GMOs), and sharing news outlets friendly to the cause.
The Monsanto Years takes its name from the company Monsanto, which produces genetically engineered seeds. Staunchly opposed to the process, Young oversaw the creation of a mini protest doc titled Seeding Fear. Monsanto objected to the film’s content and likened it to “pirating an album… knowing what you're doing is illegal and that it will result in criminal charges if caught."
