Dedicated to Republican Senator James Inhofe of Oklahoma, who has labelled Global Warming a hoax perpetrated by naughty scientists.
Truly, I live in dark times!
The guileless word is folly. A smooth forehead
Suggests insensitivity. The man who laughs
Has simply not yet had
The terrible news.
What kind of times are they, when
A talk about trees is almost a crime
Because it suggests silence about so many horrors?
Bertolt Brecht, To Those Born Later
