The Washington Free Beacon chronicles one of the many ways in which Big Government forces us to spend our money on propaganda designed to further the interests of the State: a taxpayer-funded play dubbed "Global Warming: The Musical," for which the National Science Foundation wasted almost $700,000 of our money.
The story revolves around Karl (Marx?), who has been kicked off Nature Channel’s Shark Week because he hijacked the program, using it to make a point about climate change. People shouldn’t be terrified of sharks, he explains, they should be terrified that sharks aren’t killing more people. Something about their population dying due to, what else, global warming.
After the Shark Week “debacle,” Karl is having an identity crisis in Barro Colorado Island, in the middle of the Panama Canal. He still has his camera gear, so he decides to start interviewing the local environmentalists.
There’s Allie, a plant ecologist on the island, and Rob, who is first and foremost described as “Allie’s husband.” Somewhat of a dunce, Rob is also a plant ecologist. They study baby leaves.
Karl says the interviews are for a “f**k that experiment,” meaning he can “do whatever” he wants.
He then meets Julie, a rather foul-mouthed 15 year-old girl who is willing to “set herself on fire” to send a message about climate change.
A blonde, fair-skinned millennial, Julie has plenty of lines about Twitter and her quest to become famous. She sings the first number, in a rather annoying high-pitched voice, about floods and polar bears. They’re “getting hungry because the ice is melting,” the song goes.
Scenes of Detroit show the city all gone, Julie starts fading out, repeating “this is a picture …” until there are no more pictures. The message: Nothing will be spared from global warming’s wrath.
