Bombing And Bulldozing Nations Call For Climate Change While Destroying The Environment - Poem by Saiom Shriver

How ironic that many of the
countries advocating climate
change are themselves
bombing trees
to kill human beings and
destroy resources
in Pyrrhic victories.

Topic(s) of this poem: environment, trees, war

Poet's Notes about The Poem


1 Trees are temperature stabilizers. While deserts can be 130 or more
degrees, rainforest at the hottest point: the equator, is 70 degrees
2 Trees turn carbon dioxide into oxygen.
3 Trees of average size evaporate 42 gallons of moisture daily into the atmosphere which water becomes mist, then clouds, then rain.

Trees have hundreds of other functions such as giving zillions of tons of free food, creating animal habitat, beauty etc.


2 biggest causes of rising seas submerging islands

1. fossil fuels (coal gas oil)
2. forests bulldozed, trees cut down
a. for cattle and sheep ranches
b. for lumber
c. burned by war bombs and drones
d. for newspapers and other paper etc.
e. for housing developments and commercial buildings
f. for furniture
g. for toilet paper
h. for pizza boxes
i. for cardboard packaging
j. for newspapers
k. for books
l. for greeting cards
