Obama Inc. Spent $700,000 on Global Warming Musical

That's what $700K buys you

That’s what $700K buys you

It’s not a joke, but this administration is.

House Science Committee Chairman Lamar Smith questioned White House science czar John Holdren in a Thursday hearing over whether or not the National Science Foundation (NSF) should have to justify its use of taxpayer dollars to fund projects. Smith pointed out some examples of questionable projects the NSF has funded.

$700,000 on a climate change musical

The $700,000 went to the play “The Great Immensity,” which is being put on by an investigative theater group called The Civilians. The play is set to premiere next month in New York City.

The play’s plot is summarized as follows: “Through her search, Phyllis uncovers a mysterious plot surrounding the upcoming international climate summit in Auckland. As the days count down to the Auckland Summit, Phyllis must decipher the plan and possibly stop it in time. With arresting projected film and video and a wide-ranging score of songs, The Great Immensity is a highly theatrical look into one of the most vital questions of our time: how can we change ourselves and our society in time to solve the enormous environmental challenges that confront us?”

So it’s like a bad thriller, except set to equally bad music. And it’ll be put on in New York City, a place where it’s vitally necessary to convince people that the sky is falling because they don’t believe in Warmunism yet. But now that Obama insists on cutting the military further, there’ll be plenty of money for cowboy poetry and Global Warming musicals.

But didn’t someone make a Chicken Little musical already?

    How much you want to bet, Daniel, that “The Great Immensity” is optioned by some Hollywood studio with a $7,000,000 production budget, with an all-star cast and the best CGI?

    • Daniel Greenfield

      Noah is already being released into theaters

      • DogmaelJones1

        Yes, I would agree that “Noah” is a “Great Immensity” in and of itself (if that’s what you meant).

  • Alphamail

    Wouldn’t put it past a phony Prog to turn up the theater thermostat during viewing

  • flyingtiger

    They should have given this play to the Babes with Blades theater group. They play would be much better with a few sword fights.

    I thought the federal government wasn’t allowed to favor any particular religion.

      Its worshiping the watermelons green on the outside and red on the inside.

    This Is Great News Comrades!
    This is like the Bolshevik propaganda trains of old. How lucky we are to live in a country where our government masters love us enough to free us from the tyranny of having to think for ourselves.

    And the big closing number, where a hundred perfectly choreographed dancers, dressed as CO2 molecules arise from the stage, in classic Busby Berkley fashion, kill everyone on stage. Awesome.

  • truebearing

    Well, they’ve played musical chairs with the name of this horrible pseudo-crisis, why not an equally decieving musical? Does Al Gore play the dancing bear? Or is Al “The Great Immensity”?

  • truebearing

    Musicals, bastardizations of Biblical stories…what’s next for the Left, a carnival geek show with Alan Grayson snorting meth and doing a tap rendition of Dueling Banjos? Or how about something really bizarre like Barack Obama speaking an entire sentence with no lies or self-referencing? Or perhaps a Mohammedan beheading a Tea Partier for being ecologically incorrect?

  • NAHALKIDES

    Here’s a relevant question: why do we even need a National Science Foundation, especially if it’s not even going to fund science but Leftist propaganda.

    “Warmunism?” That’s a good one! I was buried under 6 feet of man made snow storms all winter. Tired of Obozo’s Fe Fi Faux Fum all over the USA and the World. Only he and his merry band of gay brotherhood believes his fairy tails. He’s a delusional dude or dudet.
