This video below is from back in 2007 by the Freezing Emperors from Minnesotans for Global Warming — who wrote and produced the most-famous global warming parody song of all time, “Hide the Decline,” which Michael Mann tried to get taken down from YouTube with limited success.
Someone shared the song below with Heartland tonight on Twitter, and I don’t know what took them so long! It a song called “If We Had Some Global Warming,” a parody of “If I Had a Million Dollars” by Barenaked Ladies.
I think it is even colder now than in 2007 — at least judging by last winter in the Midwest, and the early arrival of another dread “polar vortex” this month. So, yeah. We could use some global warming right about now. The experts keep promising it, but when will it arrive!
Enjoy. This song it’s cheeky fun.
