PLAY #85: IT’S THE SUN, I TELL YOU, THE SUN (FEB 23)

A field.

Signs poke up with the names of different fossil fuel companies & foundations: EXXON MOBIL, THE AMERICAN PETROLEUM INSTITUTE; THE KOCH BROTHERS.

SCIENTISTS test ground with different implements.

Every now and then a SCIENTIST cries out:

 

SCIENTIST

Bonanza!

 

SCIENTIST collects money, talks to imagined reporter.

 

SCIENTIST

Yes, it’s true that my research questions that climate change is anthropogenic.

Yes, it’s true that some of my funding comes from the fossil fuel industry.

 

SCIENTIST gathers all the money, continues to prospect somewhere else.

SCIENTISTS prospect until there is another bonanza.

And on…
