The energy star program has really come a long way. Shedding light on energy consumption and making people aware of what they are using are just a few highlights.

It is referenced in Wikipedia, and has gotten over 13,000 hits between Knol and YouTube, (5,000 hits on YouTube, 8,000 on Knol).

Most important, it does not infringe another artist’s copyright. I wrote the original lyrics and piano arrangement.

Every other Earth Day song I have researched either infringes copyright, is hard to sing, or written for children.

Ludwig van Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy” melody is already the official anthem of the European Union (in that case purely instrumental without lyrics), the melody is widely recognized and easily performed, in the public domain, and originally composed for voice. (The piano arrangement is also easy to play.)

Anyway, you can check out the lyrics with piano arrangement at:

Thank you!
