Talk about a jack of all trades. Lin-Manuel Miranda is an actor, singer, songwriter, and playwright, and now, the Hamilton scribe can add environmental activist to the list.
Miranda tweeted Monday morning that he’d compiled a Spotify playlist of songs about climate change, aptly titled, ‘Climb It, Change Is Real,’ in a dig to the members of the Trump administration who have denied the existence of climate change.
“I made you a new mix!” Miranda wrote. “It’s called Climb It, Change Is Real. Theme is self-evident. This one bangs.”
The playlist consists of 16 different tunes, all of which include some reference to the Earth or weather, particularly extreme temperatures, kicking off with the ominously titled, “It’s the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine)” by R.E.M.
Miranda also included some serious throwbacks, from “Hot in Herre” by Nelly, to “This Is Why I’m Hot” by MiMs and “Temperature,” by Sean Paul, among others.
This isn’t the first time Miranda has used his passion for music to help get a message across. In January, he compiled a playlist called ‘Rise Up Eyes Up Wise Up,’ in response to Trump’s immigrant ban, that included songs from K’NAAN, Green Day, and the Roots.
