Billie Eilish Joins the Climate Change Fight and Here’s How She’s Doing It

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at FSU chapter.

Billie Eilish, an enigmatic pop star, has been dominating the charts since she released her latest album, When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? earlier this year. She captured her audience’s attention with top chart hits like “bad guy” and “bury a friend.” Her song lyrics are filled with moody and melancholic overtones while tackling a range of various topics from drug use to heartbreak.

There is something else Billie wants to tell the world. Climate change is something that needs to be addressed. Recently, her song “all the good girls go to hell” gained a lot of attention when she released the song’s music video on Sep 4. Billie stars in the gross but attention-grabbing video. She is featured as a dark angel falling from the sky into a slick and grimy pool of oil. From then on she sings her haunting lyrics and walks down a street where both the houses and her wings catch fire.

Billie sings lyrics such as “hills burn in California” while the apocalyptic world surrounding her starts to erupt in flames. She sings of “animals, evidence” and mentions the earth’s rising waters. Below the video, Billie left a description.

“right now there are millions of people all over the world begging our leaders to pay attention. our earth is warming up at an unprecedented rate, icecaps are melting, our oceans are rising, our wildlife is being poisoned and our forests are burning. on september 23rd, the UN will host the 2019 Climate Action Summit to discuss how to tackle these issues. the clock is ticking. on friday september 20th and friday september 27th you can make your voice be heard. take it to the streets.”

While the climate strike has passed, Billie is not done taking a stand. She recently announced on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon that she is partnering with a company called Reverb to make her upcoming world tour as green as possible! Plastic straws will be banned from venues, fans are allowed to bring their own water bottles, and there will be stations around the concerts where fans can go to learn more about the climate crisis and what they can do to help.
