Climate poetry

In honour of National Poetry Day and inspired by the Royal Society meeting on “Next Steps in Climate” here is my rather un-sophisticated summary of the meeting in poem form.

The climate is a-changing

We observe that it is so

Surface temperatures are rising

AND there is less of ice and snow

We climate scientist are (95%) confident

That human emissions are involved

But there is still room for further study

Some puzzles remain unsolved

Aerosols and fluffy cloud

Deep ocean heat uptake too

Need more obs and better models

I accept the challenge. Do you?
