‘A Christmas Song’ To Warm Your Holiday

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire

Jack Frost melting where he froze

Yuletide carols being sung by a choir

And Eskimos dressed up in summer clothes

Everybody knows a turkey and lots of CO2

Was the Copenhagen brew

And tiny states with Senators two

Make a climate bill’s chances few

Skeptics say ice age is on its way

While scientists’ email says with data they play

Yet every data set and glacier it seems

Says global warming could make our children scream

And so, I’m offering this simple phrase

To kids from one to ninety-two

Though climate change may haunt future Yuletide days

“Merry Christmas to you”

TheGreenGrok Team is off for the holidays and will return in the New Year.
