It’s Blog Action Day and Andy has recorded and blogged When the Waters Rise one of his own songs on the theme of climate change.
I think this is a powerful song and I love a tango!
The balance kept by plants and sea
has pushed beyond the boundary
The gas surrounds us like a cloak
a million years gone up in smoke
With climate change, a world in motion,
Then the ice caps melt and join the ocean And the waters rise
In the short term we can head for the hills,
In the longer run we’ll all grow gills and the waters rise
I fear he might be right about everyone needed to evolve gills in the longer term!
It was on the news this morning that the Arctic shipping lanes will be fully open for commercial shipping and are unlikely to freeze this winter for the first time ever. How scary is that???
I hope that all the thousands of bloggers writing about climate change for Blog Action Day realise that we probably have to do more than just write a blog post and move on.
