Global Warming - wix.jpg


By Josie Whitehead

Global Warming Isn't Cool

A challenge, facing all our world,
     Is in our hands today
Climatic changes are the signs -
       Already underway. 

Our planet’s heating up at speed:
      This problem must be faced –
And much that’s at the root of this
      Is caused by human waste.

Greenhouse gases, caused by waste,
      Are sent up through the air.
It’s not just things that we chuck out
       But vehicles – beware!!

Our seas and rivers, full of pain, 
      Cry out, in deep despair.
The creatures living in their world
       Are dying.  Is this fair?

Young people – you’ll be suffering
      In years that lie ahead,
So, when you buy the things you use,
      Remember what I’ve said.
