about

Adapted from the Original poem by Clive James,
"Imminent Catastrophe":

The imminent catastrophe goes on
Not showing many signs of happening.
The ice at the North Pole that should be gone
By now, is awkwardly still lingering,

And though sometimes the weather is extreme
It seems no more so than when we were young
Who soon will hear no more of this grim theme
Reiterated in the special tongue

Of manufactured fright. Sea Level Rise
Will be here soon and could do such-and-such,
Say tenured pundits with unblinking eyes.
Continuing to not go up by much,

The sea supports the sceptics, but they, too,
Lapse into oratory when they predict
The sure collapse of the alarmist view
Like a house of cards, for they could not have picked

A metaphor less suited to their wish.
A house of cards subsides with just a sigh
And all the cards are still there. Feverish
Talk of apocalypse might, by and by,

Die down, but the deep anguish will persist.
His death, and not the Earth’s, is the true fear
That motivates the doomsday fantasist:
There can be no world if he is not here.

lyrics

- Adapted lyrics:

And the Global Warming goes on and on
Ice at the poles that should be gone
By now is awkwardly still lingering
Not showing any sign of happening

Polar bears are doing just fine
If there's a Global Warming Catastrophe
It's in your mind.

So say tenured pundits with unblinking eyes
Of manufactured fright is sea level rise
Should be here soon and could do such and such
While continuing not to go up by much

Bondi Icebergs are doing just fine
If there's a Global Warming Catastrophe
It's in your mind.

Hey climate scientists
Don't you lie to me
With fake hockey sticks
And apocalyptic fantasies
That's not science
It's more like astrology
I'm all warmed out
And there's no
No climate catastrophe
