Sometimes its always on my mind
sometimes its easy to forget.
But when I am reminded it hits me like a heavy stone
a violent gust of wind
and I am horrified of how I could have forgotten
it is the elephant in the room
but some continue to deny.
Why do they continue to ignore it?
Is it because they are scared?
These questions fill my head
every time I remember.
stubborness is something I understand, sometimes
but not when it comes to our entire planet slowly heating up over time
slowly annihilating all living life
until nothing is left for the polar bears
summer or winter
to stand or live on
until we have nothing to iceskate on
because it will be too warm
I also speak directly to our president
who I respectfully and honorably but totally disagree with
Climate change is real

Daily Challenges: A new idea to explore and create each day. Use sound and photos, too!
We can't sit around any longer. The climate IS changing. Take a look at this remarkable movie for glacial evidence: Chasing Ice. (Netflix has it on stream.) What is your reaction? What must be done, first?
Medium.com's magazine Matter had a series on how climate change will affect the future. Some of our favorites: City of Ash by Paolo Bacigalupi, Table of Contents by Choire Sicha, and It's Not Climate Change, It's Everything Change by Margaret Atwood.
