A New Estimate of the Average Earth Surface Land Temperature

A New Estimate of the Average Earth Surface Land Temperature Spanning 1753 to 2011

Some warn you of flooding and storm;
Some say there’s no cause for alarm.
So we re-ran all the stats,
And hold on to your hats:
The weather is going to get warm.

Give some fish to a neighbor who’s poor,
And he’ll eat for a year– that’s the score.
As for teaching him, now–
We still haven’t learned how.
We’d do better to look to before.
