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.
Suzanne C Hidore
My goal, as a responsible adult, is to leave a planet that people, plants, and animals can continue to occupy comfortably. I am an educator by profession. While educating myself on Climate Change and Renewable Resources, I hope to share my knowledge and images with those that share my concern.
Dr. John J. Hidore is a retired professor from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and I am proud to call him my Uncle. His work has taken him to regions across the globe—including the Middle East, where he conducted research for a year in the Sudan. He has written many books, such as Climatology: An Atmospheric Science and Global Environmental Change.----Linn Smith
