Die Hemelblom, 1971, (The sky flower) by Jan Rabie is a Sci-fi novel about the Galactic Council that sends "sky flowers" to the hopelessly polluted and exploited earth, which then covered the earth and supplanted all other life. So it is an early warning about the dangers of pollution to the earth and its inhabitants. The sky flowers will wither as soon as they covered the whole earth, and it will leave a clean uninhabited earth.
The only effective way the few remaining humans found to combat the spread of the Hemelblom was with music, using large speakers attached to low noise electric powered aeroplanes.
