The hottest January ever;
We’ve passed the one point five degrees.
Climate change is on the march,
Frying the air and boiling the seas.
Do not say we didn’t warn you;
We have been banging on for years.
But the actions of our leaders
Are running decades in arrears.
And don’t pretend it’s all fake news
Or the facts are inconclusive;
Evidence for such opinions
Is vanishingly elusive.
New record highs will come and go,
As long as we spit on this Earth.
The floods and fires will rampage
Till we respect our planet’s worth.
So please make no more excuses
For pumping rubbish at this rate.
Bells of warning have been sounded;
It may already be too late!
