This is the Big One by Andy Fraser; anthem of World Environment Day

Andy Fraser is backing the annual World Environment Day campaign to end global warming and has given over his song 'This is the Big One' to further raise awareness of the Earth's problems.

"Our world is crying out for help and it's time for me to speak up. My track, 'All Right Now' is one of the most listened to songs of all time, with over 6 Million BPI verified airplays.", said Fraser.

"If the same amount of people listened to our message about the rising sea levels, then I will have done something positive to help. That's why I've written and donated a song especially for World Environment Day and I hope that everyone listens to the message within 'The Big One'."

World Environment Day - which takes place on June 5 and has the tag line "raise your voice, not the sea levels" - Last years campaign became one of the most tweeted about topics and Andy is hoping awareness will spread even further on social media this year.

He added: "Flooding and rising sea levels are physically impacting on us all as global warming accelerates at a frightening pace. The planet is on loan to all of us and we all have our part to play in keeping it safe and healthy for future generations. Please, everyone, show your support by joining in the World Environment Day Tweetathon between 4-5 June. Join the campaign and do something really positive to show you care."

World Environment Day (WED) is the United Nations’ principal vehicle for encouraging worldwide awareness and action for the environment. Over the years it has grown to be a broad, global platform for public outreach that is widely celebrated by stakeholders in over 100 countries. It also serves as the ‘people’s day’ for doing something positive for the environment, galvanizing individual actions into a collective power that generates an exponential positive impact on the planet.

In support of the UN designation of 2014 as the International Year of Small Island Developing States (SIDS), WED this year will adopt SIDS in the broader context of climate change as its theme. Our objectives are to help build momentum towards the Third International Conference on SIDS in September and encourage a greater understanding of the importance of SIDS and of the urgency to help protect the islands in the face of growing risks and vulnerabilities, particularly as a result of climate change. We believe WED will be an excellent opportunity to raise a call for solidarity with the islands.
