Alan Sheppard has released Code Red, a catchy, lyrically impactful Afrobeat song. Sheppard’s Code Red calls on society, governments and world leaders to take urgent action to address the global climate change crisis with immediate and sustained action to avert the tipping point of irreversible environmental conditions around the world.
Sheppard’s deep concern that climate change is having a direct negative impact on tourism and the economic sustainability of the Caribbean region for our generation and our children’s safety and security is the inspiration for his latest work.
Alan’s self produced and directed music video contains scenes of small island states frontline perils such as Sagassum seaweed clogging Caribbean beaches, extreme weather such as hurricanes, electrical storms, massive dust plumes of Sahara dust, rising sea level and coastal erosion.
The Prime Minister of Barbados, Mia Mottley, is featured in Alan’s cutting edge video, quoting the urgent action call of “Code Red” at the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow on 31 October – 13 November 2021.
Sheppard’s hope is that his song raises awareness, encouraging everyone to play their part in avoiding the tipping point of irreversible consequences for the Caribbean region and the planet in general.
The singer/songwriter encourages solutions like the implementation of green energy projects, solar farms for electricity and electric vehicles for public transport and personal use, as well as legislation for the protection and restoration of our coral reefs and beaches.
