Finally, An Anthem For Climate Change Deniers

In 1985, a group of international superstars gathered together to record an iconic anthem that changed the way that the arts and activism engaged with each other. At the behest of legendary vocalist (and activist) Harry Belafonte, Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie wrote a single that was then performed by a host of the world’s top entertainers.

That song was, of course, We Are The World, and it ended up selling more than 20 million copies and raising some $63 million for humanitarian aid in both Africa and the US.

And now we have the opportunity to witness yet another epic musical project, but this time, the superstars are not compassionately raising money and awareness for famine victims, but are instead bringing a really important message from the Koch brothers to the people. That message, you’ll be happy to hear, is that we’re all good, and you really can’t trust those pesky climate scientists to know what they’re talking about.

It’s the single we’ve all been waiting for: The Climate Change Deniers’ Anthem.

Yes, it’s from Funny or Die, but it’s catchy, no?

Sing it with me:

We’re fine, just a little toasty weather, to bring us all together…

  • “Polar bears are fine. The ice caps aren’t melting.” followed later by “And polar bears fine. Man those bitches can swim!”

    I detect an inconsistent message! But I guess I can ignore that since they say everything is fine.

  • Heated the ice, until the liquids became one
    The two splice, until the winds which once spun
    Became still, then came a relentless chill
    Apathy into panic, equators turned to Arctic
    Confusion to the smile I show
    As all you built detached, came apart
    Buried beneath a mile of snow
    Until your body matched your heart

    • That was more my anthem for humanity in my teen years.

  • Sorry guys… my worry is that some aren’t smart enough to realize it is a spoof… I think we should keep demonstrating that each individual can make a difference in what they do every day. Buy EVs, use LED lights, investin solar and Wind, get your town to install LED street lights, buy a Heat pump dryer or water heater… Educated kids in your school with a talk to the science class. spend the time to come up with songs that are really saying something positive…

    Personally, I think, although this is kind of funny, it is really more devisive. We do need to work together not just aim to make ourselves feel better and piss of the people we think are on the other side… maybe they don’t understand… If your son or daughter doesn’t understand, does it help to make fun of them? No… it helps to explain it one more time from a different perspective or angle…

    • I’m guessing you are not part of the “Funny or Die” demographic.

      • I have been out of the country for several years, with very low bandwidth when I could get internet… and living where each KWhr had to be carefully produced (solar and wind) and savored… so I’m not really part of many demographics. I have been face to face with climate change and constantly have to chose to be hopefull. Coming from that, the USA has been a little shocking. A lot of energy (emotional as well as actual) is spent making others wrong. Yes, funny… and shouldn’t we spend the money/time/energy on making a difference. Could be done with humor…

        • It’s all fun time now.
          We’re between WWs 2 and 3

    • Sorry, speedy, way ahead of you. G warming is already yesterday’s news. Better start buying “carbon credits” to keep yourself warm in the coming ice age.
