SOLARTOPIA! is performed by Pete Seeger, Dar Williams, David Bernz and the Rivertown Kids' Choir. It was filmed and recorded (in one take!) in the Jeff Haynes studio in Beacon, NY on October 24, 2009. Pete, David Bernz and Harvey Wasserman composed this anthem for Wasserman's futuristic vision of a green-powered, socially-just Earth free of fossil fuels and atomic energy. Harvey describes his vision in his book, "SOLARTOPIA! Our Green-Powered Earth, A.D. 2030." Bernz's brilliant chorus takes us from Adam and Eve to Three Mile Island and BP's Gulf spill, invoking a time that must come when humankind will once again be powered by the wind and sun. Shot by Dan Keller, the video is subtitled so all can sing along---and many do when it's played in public! The song appears on Pete's "Tomorrow's Children" album from Appleseed Records.
