Return of the opportunists...

It seems, IMHO, like the SHR team wanted to cash in on the Obama agenda for climate change.

It's great to see new SHR episodes, but these concepts aren't as easily translatable (or based on irrefutable proofs) as their previous Science Rock episodes such as the classic "Energy Blues", which is also included in this collection.

Bob Dorough and Jack Sheldon are good, not quite as good as you'd expect from these SHR vets. Lynn Ahrens has written some good new tunes, not quite as catchy as her previous SHR work. You can hear just how much Lynn's absence from singing (30 years since her last SHR vocals) affects her performances here, such as her "Interplanet Janet" sequel, "Solar Power To The People". The sparkle and shine I remember from her other SHR vocals are missing in action, and unfortunately it's captured in 5.1 Stereo Surround.

George Newall (another of the SHR vets) has the catchiest new composition with the doo-wop ditty about water conservation.

"E" for effort though.
