Space Monkey's Song For the Divine Mother of the Universe

Check out the video above for Ben Lee’s music video: Song For the Divine Mother of the Universe.  The video is titled Space Monkey.

This is a nice moving video.  It starts out sweet then uses a dystopian warning to move me into action.  Not only do I get the ecological importance from the video but it also has two other warnings: the dangers of global war and the importance of our space program.  After all this is our only planet for now, the space program and humanity spreading out into space would increase the odds of us as a people surviving global catastrophe.

I really like the  Planet of the apes feel to the video as well.

...developed in collaboration with the World Wildlife Foundation Australia to “raise awareness of the devastating impact the human race could have on the planet, unless a more meaningful, healthier and sustainable way of life is adopted to help preserve its future.”
