Crisis 350

Once called global warming
now the moniker is climate change
whatever the name it forebodes badly

Too much C02 in the atmosphere
350 parts per million is optimum
400ppm is what we have now

severe climactic events abound
around the world we must stop
burning fossil fuels to  survive

The industries only want to keep on
producing toxic levels of carbons
it is their easiest profit margins

We are melting, seas rising 
storms the like of which we’ve seen
storms like we’ve never seen before

Take up the cudgel world, we MUST END
this severe threat to life as we know it
a threat that could end all life

In honor of Bill McKibben


  1. Very, very true. But how to stop the long-term issue in a short term election cycle?
