I was taking a look at the "EnergyBulletin" site, and I noticed a title something to the effect of "Tiny Tim predicts climate change. 1967. Melting ice caps".
It was too early in the morning. I glossed over the "1967" piece of information, thinking that maybe some passage in Dickens alluded to coal smoke, and deteriorating climate, and "God Bless us Everyone".
Twasn't THAT Tiny Tim. It was the "Laugh-In" era Tiny Tim.
I hit the bold title line which takes you into the article, and hit the "play" button.
Ladies and gentlemen, that was too much/too fast. Rushing right into the song is a bizarre, frightening experience, and I felt rather uncomfortable.
So, we're going to take this in steps. First, the lyrics. Then, if you feel up to it, hit the play button.
