You could have said
It was obvious…
Putting a greenhouse gas
Into our air should have
Been understood
As a hazard…
But even now
As the evidence mounts
That something’s very wrong
We haven’t stopped…
Will it only become
Obvious to some
Who deny the facts
When they stand
On what once was
The water’s edge
Chest-deep in the sea?

      Thank you, Suzanne. I don’t get it that people don’t all get it. We see the evidence every day on the news. Good reason to question whether our species is as smart as we think we are. I think not.
