COP 27 – Time’s running out.

COP 27 in Egypt is surely a last-ditch effort to stop the horrendous effects of the world from heating up. Droughts, floods, fires, storms, mass migration and devastation of the biodiversity. The last grains of the sands of hope are running out.

Where is our Prime Minister? Looking at more pressing domestic needs! I hope he can explain to all the people affected by climate changes this winter and next summer.

What he should be doing is sorting out a coherent strategy:

A massive move to renewables and away from gas and coal. Including those tidal barriers at Hull and Cardiff, onshore wind farms, geothermal, hydro and heat pumps.

A massive scheme to conserve energy – lagging houses, triple glazing, proper insulation

Stringent new building regs – triple glazing, proper insulation, heat retrieval systems, intrinsic solar panels, heat pumps…..

Rishi is probably staying at home plotting against his enemies – the rest of the Tory party!

How are you Climate Change deniers feeling now?

Now we are beginning to see the utterly predictable terrible effects of climate change are you still in denial? Do you still think it’s a conspiracy?

So far we’ve had:

Record temperature heatwaves destroying crops and making huge areas of the world uninhabitable

Massive flooding swamping whole countries

Droughts killing people, wildlife and drying up crops causing mass starvation

Devastating bush fires destroying huge swathes of forest, decimating wildlife and burning homes

Melting glaciers and rising sea levels

Some alterations in sea currents and air currents.

This is only the beginning. As this progresses there will be mass migration as people move from areas that are no longer habitable. Sea level rises will put cities and much farming land under threat. Droughts will hit harvests creating food shortages and starvation. Wildlife will be threatened. There will be water shortages, food shortages and probably wars.

If the ocean currents alter that will cause immense differences. For instance, in Britain, if the gulf stream is deflected or halts we can look forward to Siberian winters with temperatures down to minus twenty or minus thirty degrees.

If the airstreams are altered we could see major changes to seasons and weather patterns.

All this has been modelled, predicted and is following the patterns expected except that it is proceeding at a faster pace than was thought.

In the midst of this man-made catastrophe where the whole world should be doing everything in their power to stop putting out more carbon dioxide, to try to halt and reverse this disaster, we have the populist fools such as the American Republicans wanting to make money by using more oil and gas, idiots like Bolsonaro burning down the Amazon forest to make money, imbeciles like Putin waging war that is burning up petrol and going to require major reconstruction and also burning off huge amounts of gas instead of shipping it to Europe and China using coal, oil and gas in massive amounts to gain world domination.

Madness rules!!

Shifting – Change comes

Shifting – Change comes

Shifting air currents,

                Later rains,

                                Drier vegetation,

                                                More fire.

Change comes.

Fossil fuels,

                Mass pollution,

                                Tropical storms


Change comes.

Opher 22.4.2021

We are reaping the results of three hundred years of abuse.

Our numbers are a bacterial scum rotting everything we touch.

The oceans and forests are not infinite.

We are tipping the balance.

Change is coming.

WE will not like it – not one bit.

Biblical floods, fire, plagues, drought, famine, migrations and desperation.

Change comes.

We are responsible.

Poetry – Too Many

Too Many

Too many people.

Too many by far.

All burning up energy.

Travelling by car.

Killing the wildlife.

Chopping the trees.

Covering with concrete.

Nature brought to its knees.

How to reduce this vast population?

Reduce the numbers – nation by nation?

Maybe Gaia is raising her head?

Giving her warning –

Change –

Or we’ll all end up dead.

Opher – 16.4.2020

Humanity has increased in numbers to a ridiculous level. We are swamping the planet and destroying nature.

Global warming and species diversity, deforestation, over-fishing, mass extinctions, plastic, ozone layer, pollution.

The problems are huge and global.

We show no real signs of grappling with these problems. They impinge on profits!!

So we continue to rape the planet and destroy nature. Perhaps the planet is getting fed up with us?

Poetry – Denial


Five million creatures fried

                As the fires of global warming

                                Shroud the globe in smoke.

Australia, Indonesia and California burn,

                As humanity never seems to learn.

And the ecology of the world lies broke.

Floods, storms and droughts,

                                In the extreme,

                Stalk the world.

Glaciers melt,

                Corals bleach

                                As the tragedy unfurled.

Despite the palls of smoke

                Filling the sky

There are still those

                Who will deny.

Opher – 2.1.2020

They estimate that five hundred million creatures have already been burnt to death in the terrible fires sweeping through Australia.

Three years of severe drought followed by a record high temperature has produced a catastrophe waiting to happen.

It has been replicated in Indonesia and California.

While hurricanes, typhoons and tropical storms batter countries, sea levels rise, desertification increases, seas warm, corals bleach and there is record rainfall and floods.

All predictably following the computer modelling.

Once again the hottest global temperature on record.

What were one in a century events are now happening every year.

I sit in Britain where we have flooded towns, fields that resemble lakes and a year’s rainfall falling in days.

Carbon Dioxide levels are at a record. The greenhouse effect is real. Yet there are those who still believe this is nothing to do with man, is just a natural cycle and deny any link.

They point to solar output.

Yet they is no increased solar activity. There is a greenhouse effect though.

Trump, Xi Jinping, Bolsonaro and Morrison just want to burn fossil fuel for short-term profit. They don’t give a damn about the future.

I wish a plague of fleas, leeches and horse-flies on all of them.

Surely, even if it were caused by solar effects, there are things we can do to rectify the situation. We could move to renewables and away from coal, oil and gas. We could plant trees. We could stop destroying forests and wetlands. These things would not do any harm and might solve the problem (however it was caused).

Let’s get the carbon dioxide out of the damn atmosphere, protect our wildlife, limit our numbers and start behaving responsibly!!!

COP 26 – Did they save the planet??

Boris Johnson produces enough hot air to heat every home but in terms of achieving anything, it’s always a fat zero!! All mouth and bluster – no end product.

He used to be a climate change sceptic – now he just lies about what he is doing. Like a real hypocrite he tells you the wonderful things he wants to do and does the opposite.

So it’s more coal mines and oil fields while telling the world to clean up!!

We’re at a crossroads and we have an incompetent lying clown in charge.

Poetry – Hard Times are Coming

Hard Times are Coming

From the water world to the drought,

Hard times are coming.

From the Sahara ocean

To the Atlantic desert,

Hard times are on their way.

Growing crops on mountain tops,

Hard times are coming.

From the arid Amazon

To the flooded Gobi,

Hard times are on their way.

Fishing over Holland, trawling Bangladesh,

Hard times are coming.

Cities under water,

Fields a fishing bank,

Hard times are on their way.

They are coming.

They are on their way.

Shoulda listened

To what they had to say.

Opher – 1.4.2019

There are a bunch of very wealthy people who profit from destruction and chaos. Their enemy is stability and order.

They are immoral beyond understanding. They don’t pull and triggers, wield any chainsaws, or even give orders. They just quietly work in the background creating the circumstances, buying off the right people, influencing the decisions – and creaming off the vast profits.

Somehow they have convinced a segment of people that they cannot believe anything they hear. The Earth is flat. There were no moon landings. 9/11 was the CIA. The UN is an instrument of the globalist wealthy. All scientists and experts lie and are in the pay of politicians. Capitalism has raised standards for ordinary people.

The result is that all wealth of the world is concentrated in a few hundred pockets. Billions live in abject poverty and are exploited. There are wars. The environment is being systematically destroyed. The tsunami of human beings is swamping the world.

They do not care. They profit from it. This is just how they like it.

But hard times are coming. We know who will be to blame. It will be us.
