Al Gore said it's urgent to cool the planet down,
'cause if we don't the ice might melt, and we will surely drown.
The data won't support it, but no one really cares.
We'll put a tax on carbon to nullify our fears.
If that won't work, well-this is good-this is really wise-
We'll block the Sun by shooting pollution to the skies!
Science is politicized to back the latest tax.
"Emergency!" Just pass it quick! Don't worry 'bout the facts.
The stats are insignificant, some data have been faked!
Were it so bad, Medieval England should have been a lake.
Heaven help us if the Feds should leave us all alone.
To eat our Ben & Jerry's with dioxins in each cone.
Eagles eggs are fragile, a "scientific fact."
Or did you hear the scientists decided to retract?
Your nest egg is broken and we wonder who's the crook.
Obama's throwing parties with your money that he took. Arugula!
Al Gore sells "Carbon offsets" GE has lots of green.
Just add a tax on Carbon to get the environmental dream.
UN folks are happy with the taxes they extract.
Why are we unhappy with the rules that they enact?
Why is the Summer silent. Why is the sky so grey?
Where is the childrens' laughter, now the sunshine's gone away?
Why is the harvest skimpy? The plants need Co2!
Why are the people starving and the highways empty too?
Bedbugs and mosquitoes thrive, but fewer folks are left alive.
Why are the Children dying? Where is the DDT?
The birds and rats ate all the grain, The polar bears have gored again,
the wolves run wild across the plain.
Fake "Science!" We've been fooled again!
Al Gore has private jets. GE has lots of green .
but the carbon tax has not fulfilled the environmental dream.
The ban on coal was difficult 'cause in our final hour,
Coal was used to make 'bout half of our electric power.
And now the Summer's silent and the skies are filled with grey.
I miss the childrens' laughter, now the sunshine's gone away.
I miss abundant harvests and long summers in the sun.
I dislike frequent blackouts-and I'm not he only one.
Winter now seems endless, but the birds and bugs abound.
The howl of wolves across the plain is such a doleful sound.
Why is the Summer silent? Why is it so cold?
We "Saved the Earth!"
....um... for the mosquitoes??
(Holy ozone! let's go eat some Saccharin!)

Interesting links on controversial statistics issues in the news:
Global warmingThis is a fascinating and hotly argued issue that provides some stimulating examples of poor statistical reasoning.
The base issue appears to be relationship between atmospheric CO2 concentrations and climate change. Correlation is not causality, and a look at the data allows strong questioning of the supposed "causal relationship" of CO2 to climate change.

Response to skeptics
by advocates of AGHG models--this site purports to refute the skeptics,
but much of the refutation appears to be name-calling and the discussions
reinforce skepticism if you look at the data--see, for example, the discussion
about correlation and causality for CO2 and temperature change:
is no proof that CO2 is causing global warming"
