Here is a song dedicated to Rep. Mark Cojuangco and other members of the House of Representatives who seem hellbent on railroading the HB 4631 calling for the revival of the Monster of Morong - the Bataan Nuclear Power Plant at to tune of $1 Billion.

The song "Power" written by soft rocker and now New York Congressman John Hall became the anthem of the no nukes movement in the late 70s. With eerie prescience, the song was released three weeks before the meltdown at Three Mile Island in 1979. "Power" addressed the urgent need for renewable energy sources - 27 years ago.

John Hall helped organized the Musicians for Safe Energy (MUSE), which staged five huge anti-nukes concerts in New York, drawing 300,000 people to hear Hall, James Taylor, Carly Simon, Bruce Springsteen, Jackson Brown, Bonnie Raitt and others. MUSE denounced nuclear reactors and demanded a green future.

The video shows the last part of the No Nukes Concert where MUSE sang together "Power".

Here is the lyrics of song with later verses added to the original made by the classic folk group Peter, Paul and Mary.

POWER (John Hall)

Just give me the warm power of the sun Give me the steady flow of a waterfall Give me the spirit of living things as they return to clay Just give me the restless power of the wind Give me the comforting glow of a wood fire But won't you take all your atomic poison power away

Everybody needs some power I'm told To shield them from the darkness and the cold Some may seek a way to take control when it's bought and sold

I know that lives are at stake Yours and mine of our descendants in time There's so much to gain and so much to lose Everyone of us has to choose

Just give me the warm power of the sun Give me the steady flow of a waterfall Give me the spirit of living things as they return to clay Just give me the restless power of the wind Give me the comforting glow of a wood fire But won't you take all your atomic poison power away

We are only now beginning to see How delicate the balance of nature can be The limits of her ways have been defined And we've crossed that line

Some don't even care and know what we'll pay But we have seen the face of death in our day There's so little time to change our ways If only we together can say
