Scientists’ Lament

  • by Monica Zucker
  • tune: Battle Hymn of the Republic

We can’t say “global warming.”
We can’t say “Studies show…”
We can’t say “greenhouse gasses,”
We can’t say “Now we know…”
We’ve got to hide our science–
Never mention Kyoto,
Cause his head is in the sand.

But the facts are so alarming
That the planet earth is warming
Our emissions surely harming
But his head is in the sand.

We love carbon dioxide!
We love the SUVs!
We love all the emissions–
Even lung disease!
We love deregulation
And the censorship decrees,
Cause his head is in the sand!
