pomes of buddy don: repeatin one that i wish warnt topicull

this mornins papers made me thank bout this here pome i writ last october. i wuz kindly wishin thisn woodnt be topicull fer long, but that wuz jes a lil fantasy that dangerus thangs wood be addressd. taint lackly. ye mite coulda seen these articulls:
  • Ice Dumped by Greenland's Glaciers Triples in 10 Years:
    Greenland's vast glaciers are dumping ice into the ocean three times faster than they did 10 years ago because of increasing temperatures, suggesting that sea level could rise even more quickly than current projections.

    The study, published today in the journal Science, found that the glaciers contributed 53 cubic miles of water to the Atlantic Ocean in 2005, resulting in about a 0.02-inch rise in sea level.

    "The models we had were not terribly alarming about Greenland," said Richard Alley, a glaciologist at Penn State University who was not involved in the research. "This paper is a real wake-up call."
  • Glacier Melt Could Signal Faster Rise in Ocean Levels:
    Greenland's glaciers are melting into the sea twice as fast as previously believed, the result of a warming trend that renders obsolete predictions of how quickly Earth's oceans will rise over the next century, scientists said yesterday.

    The new data come from satellite imagery and give fresh urgency to worries about the role of human activity in global warming. The Greenland data are mirrored by findings from Bolivia to the Himalayas, scientists said, noting that rising sea levels threaten widespread flooding and severe storm damage in low-lying areas worldwide.

    The scientists said they do not yet understand the precise mechanism causing glaciers to flow and melt more rapidly, but they said the changes in Greenland were unambiguous -- and accelerating: In 1996, the amount of water produced by melting ice in Greenland was about 90 times the amount consumed by Los Angeles in a year. Last year, the melted ice amounted to 225 times the volume of water that city uses annually.
so heres the pome i writ on this topick, witch the situwayshun aint a'gittin no better, is it?

it's just a natural coincidence

it's just a natural coincidence
of earthly cycles boundless and immense
that so-called global warming could create
the hottest year since 1998

and do not think releasing CO2
as proved by analytical review
should lead us to admit we are to blame
for heating up the world as with a flame

and surely we should not accept as true
a fifty percent hike in CO2
in just one hundred years would heat our seas
in terms of fahrenheit by 2 degrees

we will not change! we'll do just as we please,
as easter islanders might fell their trees
