and a word of global warning that came like fury in the dark of night---
Global Makeover One Degree at a Time
The wind up there screams
through crowded pressure pathway contours.
Great tropospheric waves
fighting to hold direction against thermal
mountains of tropic heat and polar vortex cold.
The writhing jet stream monster goes meridional balancing
between poleward adventure
and the slackening calm of doldrums descending dryness.
Onward it journeys in a furious quest,
feasting on the rising moisture from ocean waters and raining on the surface bounty.
Old Sol’s greenhouse step child grows out-of-control.
The teeming greenness holds the planet crust in its clutches,
breathing in and breathing out by season,
nurturing its children who release the planet carbon horde
from eons of incarceration.
Together they will conquer the finely tuned,
thermodynamic climate miracle
and return our home unknowing to the chaos
from whence it sprung.
