A social site for poets in Sydney.
It was Professor Tim Flannery -
not me, so don’t shoot the messenger
Flannery’s a nut, quite frankly!
Running around like an evangelist
Working part-time on 3 grand a week
A great gig if you can make it on the list
Adelaide, Sydney and Perth will die of thirst
They’ll be bone dry with not a drop to drink
Repent by 2010, or we’ll all be curst
Yet in 2012, Warragamba opened its gates
Lest the water break its mighty walls
So the operators said let the water evacuate
You might say: “Climate change denier”
I say: “I know climates constantly changing”
Its why some weeks are wetter, hotter or dryer
The Australian indigenous first settlers
Are living survivors of the changing climate
They saw small oceans grow into large acres
We all need to lessen our pollution
It’s good for the environment –
It’s good for our health and a living ocean
But the climate’s been changing for millions –
And yes, I mean millions of years
So can we really stop it by wasting billions?
So I say to all the Tim Flannery’s out there
Push the benefits of environment and health
and not doomsday scares – it’s totally unfair.

Hi Catherine, thanks for your feedback. You're right, climate change and carbon credits are very contentious topics and were suppose to make rich investors even more richer......alas, the bottom fell out of the carbon credits. Moreover, some scientists are now starting to grow a conscience and are now feeling guilty for not completely telling the truth to gullible populations.
It will take a little more time, but over time, the climate change scare mongering will run its course.
