“And it confounds the #science”: @RealDonaldTrump tweeting, #climate denial

August 29th, 2017 · No Comments

Amid the need to response and help people suffering the massive real-time #climate impacts in Houston (and Mumbai/SouthAsia and …), a telling, on-target, and eminently toe-tapping perspective on @RealDonaldTrump from The Parody Project.

With this song, the Parody Project truly hits it out of the park for me.

  • Lyrics capture Trump all-too-well
    • “It’s time for him to tweet again, but first he’ll have to check in with Fox News, cause that the only place he gets his views. That’s how things get planted in his brain, where they remain’.
    • “And it confounds the science. The problem is that he’s not alone, he tweets to people on his phone, that global warming is a giant hoax perpetuated by the liberal folks …”
    • … listen/watch, it’s worth it …
  • Music close to core identity
    • We all, of course, have our own ‘musical lineages’, what we’ve listened to and love … for many of us, certainly for me, Simon and Garfunkel is well within that — speaking to me (us) on so many levels.
    • I grew up on their songs, had them on vinyl, on cd, and now digital.  Just last week, my eldest, youngest, and I listened (repeatedly) to ‘Sounds of Silence’ (along with other songs) en route ‘going back to university’ with a side-detour for eclipse.

Shareable music that, well, could well be useful #SciComm(science communication) about how Trump/GOP ‘confound the science’.

If you are ready for more, “Lies, lies, lies, lies, lies …” (“The Tweeter” parody of “The Boxer”) also highly recommended:

  • “Lie, lie, lie … when he tweets, you know its probably a lie …”

PS: Re Mumbai:

On opposite sides of planet,  inundated by  by Monsoon. Not just signs, reality of changed/changing

City of 18 Million Pounded by 9 Times Its Usual Monsoon Rain

Almost as if the climate is … changing
