Ballad of a Climate Change Denier
In planetary motion via a Solar system ocean
of virtually empty space
the Earth makes its journey
while the prosecuting attorney
vehemently presses his case...
But is the consumption of fossil fuels
to do the work of a billion mules
really contributing to climate change?
And if the ocean temps should rise
by a few meager degrees
and some distant regions under polar skies
should no longer freeze
is that really strange?
We must get on with economic progress
because the environment is not becoming a mess
it is only a few things
that are being re-arranged...
like the ice bergs melting at either pole
because it is not sufficiently cold.
And the increasing severity
of floods and the storming
has nothing to do
with the earth warming
as we steadily increase our energy use.
All we need is cheaper gas
so we can drive our SUVís fast
why keep talking about
the environmental abuse?
And who has time to connect
the environmental dots
when there are so many great
money making hot spots?
