We dipped into spring for a while before churches chimed midnight on 12/31/10. Spring didn’t lead into summer, instead lead to midwinter mutters, though it wasn’t midwinter. Yes, 2011 began with howls of wind.


Weird weather here, dramatic temperature swings, our first serious floods, yet look at the rest of the world. Planet Earth is flooding beyond all basements. In Queensland, an area the size of France and Germany combined is under water. Record storms, record cold, snow in California, Florida frosts, melting at the poles...


Earth’s getting wetter, while it’s getting drier,

First we freeze, then we perspire,

Earthquakes, tsunamis,

Dust from Africa

wafts to Miami

Volcanic eruptions, clouds of ash

Severe disruptions, Earth’s under the lash

Something’s askew,

I ask you, I ask you

What can we

look forward to?

That gang of

climate-change deniers

Has descended on Congress

to set DC on fire

With ideas we hoped

Had long ago expired

They’re all hot-wired

To turn the clock back

To stop progress in its tracks

Stop, stop, enough, enough

Why can’t they learn

To forget about
