about

Short Explanation of Global Warming:

(a) Earth absorbs most of the sunlight it receives; (b) Earth then emits the absorbed light’s energy as infrared light; (c) greenhouse gases absorb a lot of the infrared light before it can leave our atmosphere; (d) being absorbed slows the rate at which energy escapes to space; and (e) the slower passage of energy heats up the atmosphere, water, and ground. By increasing the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, humans are increasing the atmosphere’s absorption of infrared light, thereby warming Earth and disrupting global climate patterns.

lyrics

Last night it was on your screen
Tonight outside your window
You can bury your head
but some things just won't leave you alone

It'll dig you out, kick you down
Leave you in a broken heap
When this world is closing in on you
There are some things that you can't keep

I said it's time to make your plans
and you said I'm happy where I am

And then you said
I don't wanna have my life interrupted
Don't like this horrifying future you've concocted
I'm not buying this lifestyle you've adopted
And I'd rather not discuss these consequential matters with you anymore

Now I roll my eyes at the mention
of beachfront property
cause who knows in fifteen years exactly
where the beach will be?

And I occasionally feel relief
when i wake up in the night
having escaped an awful fate
but yeah I bet you sleep alright

You asked me why everything is always
worse than it seems
as if there is some way I can help having
apocalyptic dreams

And then you said
I don't wanna have my life interrupted
Don't like this horrifying future you've concocted
I'm not buying this lifestyle you've adopted
And I'd rather not discuss these consequential matters with you anymore

No no no
I just don't wanna hear it anymore, no no

And then you said
I don't wanna have my life interrupted
Don't like this horrifying future you've concocted
I'm not buying this lifestyle you've adopted
And I'd rather not discuss these consequential matters with you anymore

No no no
no no no
