A sung conversation about global warming between a brave little children’s choir and the entire audience

Tell me just how thick you are

And how long you will live

And about the holes in you

How old are you

How did you originate

And when you’re gone will we be gone, too

Or will Nasa build a new you


A brave little children’s choir is singing for us. The children are worried. They are angry. They want to ask us some questions. But we are not so sure about things ourselves. “Hello atmosphere, tell me just how thick you are, and how long you will live.” Whoever knows the answer, please speak up. All you  grownups: are you brave enough to answer in a song?
