Hereโ€™s a little gem I just dug out of my past.

A few years ago, a good friend of mine and I wrote a short play for the Indianapolis Fringe festival called โ€œGlobal Warming Cabaret.โ€ We played two NASA scientists who were recently let go because of their unpopular views on global warming. Naturally, these ex-researchers began touring the country with nothing but an accordion and some passion, performing heart-warming ditties about the imminent dangers of climate change. We wrote and performed parodies of popular songs (my favorite was: โ€œYou Can Call Me Al (Gore)โ€). It was a lot of fun mocking both the preachy radical left and intractable right.

We even got a nice little write-up in the local newspaper.

We made the following nifty little parody video to play at intermission in an overdrawn film noir detective story style.
