Tired Old Mules Kick a Dead Horse

Never mind the financial crisis, if temperatures don’t stop dropping[1], we’re all going to burn up. Clearly we must destroy what’s left of our economy immediately.

That’s the message of a bunch of geriatric has-beens[2] from the music world, organized by another has-been best known for his role in the UN’s oil-for-food scam:

British rock group Duran Duran and heavy metal band Scorpions are among 55 world celebrities who have joined in recording a song to draw attention to the global warming crisis, organisers said on Monday.

The song is part of a mass media campaign on the threats of climate change organised by the Geneva-based Global Humanitarian Forum, headed by former UN secretary general Kofi Annan.

Other artists include Bob Geldof, whom you may vaguely remember as the guy from an also-ran band who played Pink in The Wall more than a quarter century ago, and — I’m serious — Desmond Tutu. Maybe he does a rap or something.

These folks have at least one thing in common with The Great Global Warming Crisis: they are well past their expiration date.

Climate kook Bob Geldof was almost a rock star once, long ago.
