Waiting for the Aliens

A volcano burped lava in
Eyjafjallajokul

media commentators hoped the
ash plume would cool the earth,

and block her tear ducts,
some planes were stopped for a while,

a blip on their radar,
carbon emissions dipped an incy bit

it was perceived as a major hiccup for passengers,
the effect was stunning

in its mediocrity,
we await the arrival of aliens

to undertake the hard work,
what a joke!

note: this is an edited repost but more relevant than ever, given the new Government doesn’t give a toss for the environment and will try to axe the carbon tax and introduce a ridiculous direct action program that makes no sense if you look at the detail (and it makes no sense because Abbottabad has no intention of implementing it and is already talking about reducing the target for emissions downwards – he is just a skeptic in disguise). They also want to cut back on so called ‘green tape’ and roll back hard won environmental protections for the sake of ‘progress’.

Just remember phony Tony, you can’t breathe money or eat coal seam gas, so chew on that for a while!
