Marvin Gaye wrote the widely popular song “Mercy Mercy Me” in the 1970s. This song describes many of the environmental challenges that we were facing as a society at this time, and thus serves as a sort of time capsule for what was happening at that time.

Please listen to the song, read the song lyrics (links above), and answer the following questions:
1. List all of the environmental problems that we were facing as a society in the 1970s. Put an asterisk (*) next to the problems we are still dealing with in 2018.
2. Why do you think that we are still dealing with many of the same environmental problems more than forty years after this song was released?
3. What are some additional problems that we are dealing with now that were not mentioned in this song?
4. What do you think will need to happen so that we are not still dealing with the same problems forty years from now (2058)?
