Forests burning

Temperatures sweltering

Crops croaking

What will be the tundra’s legacy?

Glaciers melting 

Oceans rising

Shores receding

Where are we to go?

Species dying

People fleeing 

Social tensions proliferating

Will there be safe havens? 

Orbicide will be multicausal:

communal conflagration, biblical floods,

mass movement, conflict global and local

our collective suicide will have several vectors. 

This is not about the future 

It is about the now.

History is accelerating 

while the understanding of far too many remains a prisoner of the past.
