Last Chance?

At the 9/11 nightmare
our not quite dumbfounded
President Bush grounded
all jet planes and we
noticed the cool fresh air,
because jet exhaust fumes
are the worst greenhouse gas
thousands of long cloudy plumes
join the ever-rising mass
from burning coal and oil
to warm and spoil the weather,
causing the mountain glaciers
to melt away that source
of rain and fresh water,
condemning millions
to drought and famine
by refusing to examine
the behavior of billions.
So take this warning
to its necessary extent,
use your brains
and be clever
to stop global warming
safely recycle 100%
and ground all jet planes
