Joni Mitchell Sings About DDT

 
Here's part of the lyrics from Big Yellow Taxi. I don't know about the rest of you but I'd much rather watch and listen to Joni Mitchell than Al Gore or David Suzuki. You may not recognize the song until you hear her sing it.
They took all the trees
Put 'em in a tree museum
And they charged the people
A dollar and a half just to see 'em

Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
Till it's gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot

Hey farmer farmer
Put away that DDT now
Give me spots on my apples
But leave me the birds and the bees
Please!
