While we debate, delay, conflate, flay science, heat 
the atmosphere with the antagonism of our arrogance, 
flog logic with the Philistine phlogiston of corporate 
greed, set loose the churn and roil of the rhetoric 
of refused responsibility...

...the Earth simmers, the sky smolders toward spontaneous combustibility, the spark of conflagration conscripts the oxygen our grandchildren will gasp for in the long night of the climate we changed for them.
