“I doff my cap to the BBC’s stunning series called ‘Frozen Planet’ (Catch up on Iplayer) which has captured the extreme frozen poles in an amazing deluge of picture perfect realism and tell it like it is, approach.
The program’s approach to dealing with the effects, causes and irrefutable proof of our planet changing and changing fast.
The thin slither of gas which encompasses the giant rock we call home is being poisoned slowly and the symptoms of a fever like state are beginning to emerge. Just like our immune system , the earth is beginning to fight back through heat generation.
It’s amazing how the life giving planet acts just like our body’s immune systems so when under threat from micro-organisms (which is what we are in planetary terms) it too turns up the heat to try and destroy the problem. Unfortunately we are the problem.
A moment to ponder.
The fight for human civilisation, is won.
the challenge of keeping it, has just begun.
how clever, we walk the earth on wheels.
a journey we take, and take and take.
I am sorry to generations to come, we forsake you.
We inherited the garden, but even believers, destroy his Eden.
presidents and leaders deceive us, but we know.
corporations and business pretend to be eco, but we know.
species die, for this, I sigh, looking around an ordinary guy.
With business as usual, I wonder.
when nature, raped and pillaged, so cruel, but no fool.
will decide, our party is over, we loathe her.
A car too far, our actions, her reactions.
governments will fail, our society will frail
What will we do.
For the generations to come.
An apology in advance, for not taking a stance.
for not doing more, as we learn, what’s in store.
These children we raise, will suffer far more.
Humanity duelled, with this garden so cruel.
But when it’s too late, will we realise our fate.
blame men in power, no actions, her reactions.
when it’s too late, our climate will anger.
humanities fate, only our children will know.
