The Lyrics

CO2 is now officially (USEPA) an air pollutant. Solar and wind power are hyped as alternatives, but nuclear fission is ignored. In the OS, SO2 and CO, rather than greenhouse gases, were the main concerns. My POV here is that of a coastal dweller fearing rising oceans.
Here comes carbon dioxide
There go warm days at dockside
Hot air, despair
Is everywhere

Seas creep, while you sleep
Seas creep

Curse you, melting-ice flood-stream
Save me, Al Gore's called main-stream
Pretense consens-
us, spin with care

Ex-veep wants to keep
Fleeced sheep

Cataclysmic eco-spasm
Stalled atomic-power chasm
Vaporous plume
Was the seal of its doom
We don't like the surfeits that loom
Wind and sun alone ease my gloom

Here comes carbon dioxide
There go warm days at dockside
Hot air, despair
Is everywhere

Seas creep, while you sleep
Seas creep

Weep, knee-deep, glug, glug
Full disclosure: I worked in nuclear power plant construction and upgrading from 1973 to 1992.

Changing "spin with care" to "spin to scare" would express more clearly my disdain. The stop-gap measure of "beach enrichment" could be questioned by replacing "while you sleep" with "pile sand steep"(ly) once.
