Another fine *audiocollage,* by Chazk / Virtual Renderings. In several passages, veteran climate activist David Wasdell explains why global warming is not only getting worse but getting worse at an increasingly faster rate. Disaster looms. Spun around Wasdell's lecture are movie clips, songs, comedy routines, and whatnot from artists including Firesign Theater, George Carlin, Lee Camp, Al Gore, Natalie Merchant, and several others. Slightly condensed; suitable for airplay.

"New World Notes" is produced under the auspices (Latin for "first floor") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
Personal favorites in this installment: (1) the Firesign Theater at the beginning, (2) the TV "weather girl" who goes ballistic (by the Canadian comedy group Deep Rogue Ram) and (3), near the end, Angela McCluskey's haunting snippet of the song, "Frosty the Snowman."
