The Phrase "Tree Huggers"

Bertolt Brecht

Dedicated to all who believe Global Warming to be a hoax perpetrated by naughty scientists, and who refer to people concerned about the environment as "tree huggers".

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
