A post-apocalyptic future. Old TV's dot the decayed landscape. A mother scarecrow saves her son from the clutches of technology and escapes a destroyed Earth.

Maya Lavelle’s latest song and music video "Zombie Town" is throwing light on the elephant in the room when it comes to climate change. Netherlands is one of the lowest lying countries and is under threat from rising sea levels caused by global warming.

In her music video, the scarecrows and landscapes are draped in newspapers that signify fake news. Old TV's emphasize how the pervasiveness of fake news in social media have taken technology backwards.

The newspaper printed on the mother scarecrow's dress contains texts from the Paris climate agreement. You might be able to spot some of the newspaper articles referring to Trump's decision to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement this year as a turning point, resulting in the Netherlands going underwater and the world turning into a "Zombie Town".
