Climate Change: The Musical

It’s bad enough that our tax money is pumped into a bottomless pit of “climate change” crockery, but to have to pay extra to give the hoax “jazz hands” is even more maddening.

From the New York Times:

The National Science Foundation has awarded a $700,000 grant to the Civilians, a New York theater company, to finance the production of a show about climate change. “The Great Immensity,” with a book by Steven Cosson (“This Beautiful City”) and music and lyrics by Michael Friedman (“Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson”), tells the story of Polly, a photojournalist who disappears while working in the rain forests of Panama. The grant is a rare gift to an arts organization from the foundation, a federal agency that pays for science, engineering and mathematics research and education.

I’d seen the Carthage Community Theater’s musical production about the life of their most famous local resident, Phantom of the Chakra, but this sounds like an even bigger production (suggested titles: A Consensus of Cats; South Pacific Rising; How to Succeed in Scamming Without Really Trying; Hypocrite on the Roof; A Funny Thing Happened to My SUV Caravan on the Way to the Climate Change Forum; The Wizard of Ozone; Ed Begley Superstar; Annie Get Your Green Job and Seven Carbon Offsets for Seven Brothers).

Yeah, it’s a waste of tax dollars earmarked for science, but I guess it beats funding the important scientific pursuit of surfing porn — or maybe not.
