Paul McCartney has revealed that his latest album “Egypt Station” contains a song that takes aim at climate-change deniers such as President Trump, the Huffington Post reports.
The legendary Beatles bandmate told the BBC that the when he was writing the song “Despite Repeated Warnings,” he had Trump in mind when singing about “mad captains.”
The lyrics of the song include: “Despite repeated warnings of dangers up ahead, the captain won’t be listening to what’s been said,’ and ‘those who shout the loudest, may not always be the smartest.”
“People who deny climate change… I just think it’s the most stupid thing ever,” McCartney told BBC Music’s Mark Savage. “Occasionally, we’ve got a mad captain sailing this boat we’re all on and he is just going to take us to the iceberg [despite] being warned it’s not a cool idea.”
The president has denied climate change and has claimed it was “created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.”
His administration has aggressively rolled back Obama-era regulations on coal-fired power plants that were intended to address the impact of climate change.
