The Gaiamas Spirit

Posted by Jeff Id on December 3, 2011

Trenberth emials a progressives version of the first Noel made up  by a NCAR group incorporating the lead authors of the IPCC AR4.  It seems appropriate for the time of year.

Sung to tune of The first Noel

Our First Nobel

Our First Nobel, for the IPCC,
Goes to Beth, Bette, Bill, Jerry, Kathy and Guy.
Kevin, Linda, Paty, Re-to and so many more,
And we’re sharing the honor with Mister Al Gore.
Nobel, Nobel, a story to tell,
We hope our coworkers’ egos don’t swell.

The First Working Group said to sound the alarm,
Rising CO2 levels are causing great harm.
Temperatures and greenhouse gas are racing up neck and neck,
Soon the whole Earth will be hotter than heck.
Nobel, Nobel, the planet’s unwell,
This is the future the models foretell.

The Second Working Group said that change is assured,
>From the melting of glaciers to migration of birds.
>From loss of land and crops to habitats,
How can they make it much clearer than that?
Nobel, Nobel, the oceans swell,
Polar bears search for new places to dwell.

We must work to mitigate, tells us Working Group Three,
Change from fossil consumption to clean energy.
If we all do our share in reversing the trend,
Our children might have a clean Earth in the end.
Nobel, Nobel, sound the warning bell,
Let’s make a future where all can live well.

Nobel, Nobel, we are stars for a day,
Can an Oscar be far away?

    A Merry whatever for him and servitude for the reset of us. If we are lucky. Other wise we will get short, nasty, and brutish for living conditions. And I’m sure he considers himself a benefactor of humanity.

  2. Thanks for the message, Jeff.

    I have the good fortune to know personally many folks who are homeless, unemployed and living in shelters as the US economy collapses and the news media reports declining unemployment!

    What Climategate emails exposed as government misinformation in 2009 was the tip of an iceberg that had been growing out of sight since 1971:

    “Deep roots of the global climate scandal (1971-2011)”

    What a sad state of affairs for people and science in the former “Free West.”

    Said the night wind to Micheal Mann
    Do you see what I see
    There in the data, Michael Mann
    Do you see what I see
    A career, a career
    Dancing in the light
    With Doctors Jones and Briffa and the like

    Said Michael Mann to the CRU
    Do you hear what I hear
    Ringing through the sky, Dr. Jones
    Do you hear what I hear
    Ka-ching, ka-ching
    From the rings in a tree
    We can change the temperature of the sea
    We can change the temperature of the sea

    Said McIntyre to the mighty CRU
    Do you smell what I smell
    In your data files mighty CRU
    Do you smell what I smell
    A fraud, a fraud
    Bodges in the code
    It brought them silver and gold
    It brought them silver and gold

    Said the CRU to the people everywhere
    Listen to what I say
    Pray for heat people everywhere
    The Cause, the Cause
    Spreading in the night
    It will make us famous alright
    It will make us famous alrignt

    The Cause the Cause
    Spreading in the night
    It will make us famous alright
