Poem by Suzanne Hidore
What if, despite the facts, climate change is a hoax? Think about it…
What if the earth, despite the facts, is flat?
Would anyone have sailed across the ocean?
What if bacteria, despite the facts, isn’t the cause of infection?
Would we routinely get gangrene and attribute it to bad spirits?
What if cigarette smoking, despite the facts, isn’t a cause of lung cancer?
Would we all be breathing smoke everywhere?
What if immunizations, despite the facts, aren’t helping protect us from measles?
Would we start a measles epidemic?
What if coal and oil corporations cared more about people than profits?
Would we deny climate change?
Good planets are hard to find. Think about it.
