Climate Denier Style
Denier Style

The only polar bears left will be the ones in zoos  http://www.polarbearsinternational.org/about-polar-bears/essentials/climate-change
And you keep sayin no to jobs and growth to keep us all in crude http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0301421509007915
Teach pseudoscience to our kids in the hopes they’ll be dumber http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=leaked-conservative-group
And they won’t notice record heat fall, winter, spring and summer  http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2012/10/09/14321896-warmest-year-looking-more-likely-for-2012-across-continental-us?lite


Of course you’re makin record profits amid heatwaves and drought http://thinkprogress.org/green/2012/03/23/450941/will-senators-stand-up-for-american-consumers-or-big-oil/
According to you, the scientists studying this for decades have no clout http://www.pnas.org/content/early/2010/06/04/1003187107.full.pdf+html
You’re sending prayers to storm victims in New York and New Jersey
But the superheated ocean that fueled Sandy gets none of your worry


Hey, Heartland, baby!
You talk a lot of game - but you sound insane!
(The Unabomber? Really?) http://www.forbes.com/sites/stevezwick/2012/05/06/heartlands-unabomber-fiasco-is-par-for-the-course/
Hey, Exxon, baby!
You talk a lot of game - but you sound insane! http://www.theatlanticwire.com/business/2012/06/what-exxons-ceo-proposes-we-do-about-global-warming-well-adapt/54024/
Climate Denier Style

Climate Denier Style oh oh oh oh oh
Climate Denier Style

Ignoring it
really won’t make it go away
Ignoring it
just means there’ll be ~gasp~ to pay http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/06/12/us-climate-wildfires-idUSBRE85B09420120612
Ignoring it
is the best and only way
to make good and sure that we all burn someday
You know what I’m sayin’?

News flash for all you Kochs, Inhofes, and Perrys
Sticking your heads in the sand won’t work when the sand is all eroding
As the sea levels rise we’ve got no time to waste http://www.epa.gov/climatechange/impacts-adaptation/coasts.html
But you’re worried that your energy supremacy soon will be replaced

With your propaganda, and millions in campaign funds you think you’re clever http://www.opensecrets.org/lobby/background.php?id=E01&year=2011
But we want a different path and it’s still better late than never
We tried it your way now it’s time for cleaner fuels and better laws http://thinkprogress.org/climate/2012/09/25/903521/20-dollar-per-ton-carbon-tax-could-reduce-deficit-by-12-trillion-in-10-years/
Oh and also you should keep in mind that polar bears have claws

And what about the trees? 
I speak for the trees!
Yes we need the trees to
Turn climate pollution into oxygen http://www.biology4kids.com/files/plants_photosynthesis.html
Which we need!
So plant some trees http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2007/05/070511100918.htm
And while we’re at it build a wind turbine or two or maybe even three http://www.worldwatch.org/node/6362
