To The Daily Sun,
The Paris Climate Accord ... and other important stuff ... explained in very simple terms:
The ice caps they are a meltin', but what the heck — we still hear the contrary from our supporters ... Who are they ... you might be tempted to ask? Ohhhhhh, you know, that huge group of our "friends," "them thar folks we refer to as the climate change deniers."
Millions of people are starving in many parts of the world, including here in this great country of ours, but we still continue to exclusively listen to those who are purposely deaf to the cries of the hungry.
There are major droughts affecting many countries up to and including the U.S. — California and Florida are a couple of places that come to mind. Hey, what the heck does it matter, especially since we still have Trump, his posse (in the White House), and their ever-faithful supporters gushing (intentional pun) about how it’s in this country’s best interest to pull out of the Paris Climate Accord.
Hey, what the heck, say those on the right. Their rationale: "We are in good company, right?" Now let’s just see about this now ..ohhhhhh ... other than Syria, who are now in the same boat with U.S. Hey, what the heck, Trump supporters continue to say. Oh, wait a minute. Is this little dinghy now sinking after being swamped by the rise in the sea levels. Ohhhhhh, where are the life preservers? Ohhhhhh, what do you mean we didn’t bring any life preservers on board? Ohhhhhh, we are certainly doomed.
Now shouting at the top of their lungs,."Is there anybody out there to save us. Ohhhhhh, w-h-a-t t-h-e....gurgle, gurgle, gurgle...."
