Christmas Carols for coal

Posted By Jo Nova On December 15, 2018 @ 3:44 pm In Funny stuff,Global Warming | Comments Disabled

Oh yes, sure. These are really going to catch on. The grippy totalitarian, gimme dat culture strikes again with hot lyrics like “We Wish You a Steady Climate”, “We all Yearn for Solar Panels”, and “Away in The Arctic”. They sound for all the world like they were written by a climate model.  If we can’t outdo this, making them funnier and more in the spirit of Christmas, I’ll eat my keyboard.

Please do your best, the official PDF is here. (Carols against Coal backed up here.)

We wish you a Steady Climate

Tune: Trad English (We with you a merry Christmas) Lyrics: Petrina Barson

We wish you a steady climate,
we wish you a steady climate,
we wish you a steady climate
and a happy new year.

Glad tidings we bring
to you and your kin.
We wish you a steady climate
and a happy new year.

We just want ambitious targets,
we just want ambitious targets,
we just want ambitious targets
so bring some out here.
Glad …

We won’t go until we get some,
we won’t go until we get some,
we won’t go until we get some
So bring some out here.
Glad …

Cool Down the World

Tune: Antioch (Joy to the World) Lyrics: Petrina Barson (ed Sharon France)

Cool down the world, the time has come
for targets tight and fair.
Let petrol, oil and coal
prepare to go.
Let’s fund renewables,
let’s fund renewables,
let’s fund, let’s fund renewables.

Cool down the world, the time has come
for nature to rebound.
The fields and floods,
rocks, hills and plains
repeat the sounding joy,
repeat the sounding joy,
repeat, repeat the sounding joy

Cool down the world, the time has come
to make the nations prove
their money’s where their mouths are,
they’ll pay to preserve
the wonders of this earth,
the wonders of this earth,
the wonders, the wonders of this earth.

O Come all ye Miners

Tune : Adeste Fideles (O come all ye faithful)  Lyrics: Robert Dawlings

O come all ye miners.
Come and dig up Queensland.
The Galilee’s waiting for your heavy
machines.
Where will you burn coal?
Renewables are coming.
It’s all about the climate,
It’s all about the climate,
It’s all about the climate that we
must protect.

The Carmichael mine, A-
dani’s current project
sought loans and freebies from the
government.
Palaszczuk said ”Veto”
”No” said all the Chinese.
It’s all …
We will support the
Front Line demonstration
blocking the building of a railway line
From the Carmichael
to the Abbot Point port.
It’s all …

Away in the Arctic

Tune: Cradle Song (Away in a Manger)
Lyrics: Robert Dawlings

Away in the Arctic, the glaciers melt;
the ice turns to water. The warming is felt
by bears on their ice floes drifting off
where they’re blown;
disconnected from food stocks, poor bears, all alone.
The carbon dioxide is making it hot.
We must draw it down if we care just one jot.
Technology’s coming, but will it come fast
enough for the bear to find food and to last.
The price is in billions, it’ll cost us all dear.
We must work the science, we’ll do it, no fear!
We must get a move on, not sit on the fence.
So what are the bears worth in dollars and cents?

Old Mate Canavan

Tune: Tempus adest floridum (Good King
Wenceslas) Lyrics: Karen France (ed Robert Dawlings)

Old mate Canavan went out
west in central Queensland.
Where the bush lay round about,
ancient place, a homeland.
Brightly shone the sun that day,
solar not his goal.
He just wanted his own way
mining lignite (brown) coal.

Hither folk and stand with me
we know what he’s doing.
Profit o’er the earth his plea
we’re the ones he’s screwing.
Can’t he see that climate change
is a real deal breaker.
Think it’s time to rearrange
cabinet and fakers.

Who supports Adani now?
Palaszczuk and ScoMo!
All the banks have made a vow
they all say it’s ‘no-go’.
We will raise our voices high.
Kids and friends depending
on a better life whereby
fossil fuels are ending.
