Thumbs Down  Bob Dylan song adopted by Copenhagen climate summit
By Barbara Plett
BBC UN correspondent, New York

Bob Dylan has star billing at the climate change summit in Copenhagen… or at least, his music does.

The United Nations has adopted one of his songs, A Hard Rain's A Gonna Fall, as its unofficial anthem for the talks.

This is a song best known for channelling the fears of a generation living under the threat of nuclear war.

Dylan performed it for the first time in 1962 at the height of the Cold War, shortly before a plan by Moscow to station atomic missiles in Cuba set off a crisis between the United States and the Soviet Union.

But Hard Rain has weathered well, and is now being invoked to highlight this generation's fear of environmental calamity.

They should have used "Maggie's Farm".

equation, and eventually build a structure which has no relation to reality. ” -Nikola Tesla

Since they are using Dylan, they should use his version....but Rage's was really good too.
