This is the tale of an epic fight
A battle between watts wrong and right
"Mediated" by the Climate Etcetera gal
A shootout at the O Curry Corral
The Cowboy leader is ol' Big Mac
Who led the FOI attack
And various and sundry email feuds
With Phil Jones and the Science Dudes
Mac's faithful steed is Mr. Edit
It's only fair to give him credit
For spreading manure far and near
To elevate the public fear.
The local sheriff is Wyatt Schmidt
Who wasn't going to idly sit
While lies were spread about the Dudes
Poisoning public attitudes.
Wyatt set out to tame the border
To restore the physical law and order
So lacking with the Cowboy crowd
Where bunk and slander are both allowed.
In the end, he'll win this fight
For the science determines who is right
Physical law is like a bullet
You can't dodge it, and you can't fool it.

Of course, Tombstone is the place where this is all going down...and there have been rumors for some time now (all unconfirmed by science) that Global E. Warming is among its most famous interments.
