Climate Change Polemic

Tearing through the fabric of apathy
One goes up against much
The apoplectic deniers
The people who cannot be bothered
.
Our ways are too weak
We cannot change
Nothing can give us the strength
I say to you,
We will have it
But will it come in time
To avoid the worst?
.
The totems are all different
The mystic has less meaning for many
But we must remain strong in our resolve
Not to be hypocritical
But to act as we ought to act
.
Take the actions
Make the protests
Inspire the politicians to will
Yet also the corporations
When the quarterly profit is All,
How can they be made to change
They must
We must take things in hand
.
Stereophonic wires
Plug into the messaging systems
While we still have
Our electricity and mechanization
Why can we not move towards solutions faster?
It is because of the monetary system
.
As we see with Greece
The spell of money remains too strong
People still believe it has Real Reality
When will we see
The end of money?
.
Over the land and through the weather
We ride in our insulated boxes
There are other possibilities
There could be a second
Hydrogen sulfide catastrophe
As the anoxic zones
Of the oceans grow larger
.
The carbon piles up
The soils deplete
The aquifers are pumped out
The system reels ever closer
To ever more drastic changes
Yet until we develop more energy
And bring down population growth
Through education and rising incomes
How will we change?
.
The problems of incomes and educations are key
We know births go down as they increase
And it is not as we can just solar power away
All our impacts
And yet
The system is intractable
Everyone has to borrow their money from someone
Wealth cannot just be created
There is incentive to hoard it
And people duly do so
And yet
There is hope
.
So where do we go from here?
What is your answer for something to do now?
