The poet William Stafford set himself the task of writing a poem a day. When someone asked him what he would do when his poem-of-the-day wasn't very good, he replied "I simply lower my standards." In order to increase output, the bar here is set at a low level - the point of this is to have some fun with current events and politics. I welcome contributions and comments. Now you can also follow Doggerelo on Twitter (@doggerelo). Because of continuing medical problems, I'm no longer able to post a poem-a-day. I'll continue to post poems, but at a reduced frequency, so please stay tuned.

Koch-Funded Study: Global Warming's Real and We're to Blame
A new statistical study of global temperatures
by Richard A Muller, a UC Berkley
physicist and one-time skeptic of global warming, was funded in part by the Charles
G.Koch Charitable Foundation to the tune $150,000. The Koch brothers were no doubt hoping that
Muller would prove that human activity had nothing to do with global warming,
which doesn’t exist anyway. But – Surprise!
- Muller’s study found that global warming does indeed exist and that the only
plausible explanation for it is the increased CO2 in the atmosphere
resulting from human industrial activity.
