Climate change blues

And the argument continues: Is climate change-global warming real? Or is it today’s current obsession? My neighbor, Fred, a horse breeder, wants a definitive answer.

This past wintery February was a nasty one. Temperature dropped below zero. Snow clogged corrals. Even with plenty of straw in the stalls, the temperature was dangerously cold for new babies! So, naturally, that’s when two of Fred’s mares decided to deliver their foals.

Having heard and read rants on the radio and print about how cow flatulence is warming up the globe, Fred is considering buying a bunch of cattle just to warm up his horse-breeding operation. To express his frustration, Fred, an amateur guitar picker, decided to write a song. He warbles the tune with a slow blues beat. He’s happy to pass along his musical creation to you.
