In answer to the question "How serious is the subject of global warming?"
It’s warming up, and that’s no lie
The scientists can tell you why
But what they can’t predict, I hear
Is other things that we must fear
Like famine, and the melting ice
In polar climes, which may suffice
To drown us living by the coast
Or drive us higher, that’s the most
Acceptable outcome that we
Could hope for, but it seems to me
It might be advantageous now
To call the party off somehow
Just party on, our leaders say
Kyoto’s for another day
We’re making money, can’t you see?
Protecting the economy
So I suppose that we are screwed
Our leaders just do not include
Enough folk who can see ahead
Imagining our planet dead
From overheat, as it may be
Extinction of humanity,
We must control our CO2
To keep our little marble blue.
Progress depends on me and you.
And call your congress critter too.
