“I respect the secrets and magic of nature. That’s why it makes me so angry when I see these things that are happening, that every second, I hear, the size of a football field is torn down in the Amazon. I mean, that kind of stuff really bothers me. That’s why I write these kinds of songs, you know. It gives some sense of awareness and awakening and hope to people. I love the planet, I love the trees. I have this thing for trees - the colors and changing of leaves. I love it. I respect those kind of things.
I really think that nature is trying so hard to compensate for man’s mismanagement of the planet. Because the planet is sick, like a fever. If we don’t fix it now, it would be a point of no return. This is our last chance to fix the problem that we have. It’s like a runaway train. When the time comes, then this is it. People are always saying: ‘They’ll take care of it - The government’ll… - Don’t worry, they’ll -’ ‘They’ who? It starts with us. It’s us. Or else it’ll never be done… We have four years to get it right. After that it would be irreversible. Let’s take care of the planet.”"
