The climate? What a pack of stupid fools!
They think that they affect it? The idea!
At my command it either heats or cools.
From here on high Olympus do I steer
The clouds, the winds! They say the atmosphere
Has too much CO2 — a load of rot!
Computer models? Dear, oh dear, oh dear.
They think the climate simple? Well it’s not!
In winter it is cold — in summer hot!
In autumn and in spring it’s in between!
They think that’s simple? Are they smoking pot?
Can they explain the warm Palaeocene?
I’d best calm down; I need to cool my rage.
I wonder how they’d handle an Ice Age?
