  • Northwest Passage Update

    February 22nd, 2020
    climate, singing  [html]
    Singing Stan Rogers' Northwest Passage with friends this evening I realized these days it needs an update. People suggested lyrics, and here's a filked tag to sing after the song:

    In this warm clime, I have sailed the Northwest Passage
    Opened by our fires, of coal and industry
    Tracing one warm line through a land no longer frozen
    Until we cool our planet down again
    Sequester all this carbon once again

    Lyrics by Kip, Mel, Lisa, me, and others.
