Folks are facing off
With frowns upon their faces
In Kyoto and the Hague
And all kinds of other places
The oil wells are pumping
And the registers are ringing
And there are those who dare to question
What kind of future this is bringing

The ocean tides are rising
And you'll have to learn to swim
If you live in Calcutta or Miami
Things are looking mighty grim
The facts are all in order
And the experts all agree
Except, that is, for those
Working for the energy companies

And they say more study is required
We've got to make sure we understand the situation
What if we save the world
And it affects the rate of inflation

Meanwhile the temperatures are sweltering
From Turkey to Nebraska
Property rates are going up
In Iceland and Alaska
Everybody's sweating
In a worldwide heat wave
And Exxon Mobile's looking
For some forest land to pave

And they say more study is required
We've got to make sure we understand the situation
What if we save the world
And it affects the rate of inflation

Yess, the weather's getting crazy
And it's a good time to be alive
If you really like tornadoes
Or watching hurricanes arrive
'Cause the storms are multiplying
And the winds are blowing faster
While are leaders are lamenting
Another "natural" disaster

But let's look on the bright side
And stop all this whining
Don't we love to be
Where the warm sun is shining
Now folks in London
Can cry with elation
No need to fly to Barcelona
For an expensive vacation

Antarctica is melting
And the ozone hole is growing
But maybe we should trust the men
At Siemens and Boeing
They're doing research with our taxes
And they're looking to the stars
Perhaps more nuke plants are the answer
How 'bout a colony on Mars?

They say more study is required
We've got to make sure we understand the situation
What if we save the world
And it affects the rate of inflation

Yes, if you listen to the fatcats
There's just nothing to be done
But the answers are as simple
As the wind and the sun
And if there's hope for life on earth
We've got to seize the day
And then we won't have to listen
To any foolish people say

More study is required
We've got to make sure we understand the situation
What if we save the world
And it affects the rate of inflation
