CLIMATE CHANGE



                    Climate change  
             Human exploratory activities
                                   Of
                    Scientific Discovery                          
                                   Of     
                     Industrial Revolution
                                    Of
                        High technology
                                     Of
                           Self-Discovery
                            World battered
                                    With
                           Fossil fuel burnings
                              Earth carbonated
                                        With
                                Greenhouse gas
                      Environmental changes occur:
                              Wildfires spread fast
                                  Droughts occur
                               Floods fill the earth
                               Air pollution manifests
                         Volcanic eruptions happen  
                            Sun’s energy power shits
                               Ice sea losses weights
                          Mountain glaciers disappear
                                         Land quakes   
                                     Ocean rises
                                          Forests vanish
                                         Global warming
                                             Semiotics   
                                        Comity of nations  
                                          Save our worlds
                                                    From
                                                Disasters
                                                      And    
                                                 Ruination

    Dr Adekunle talks about the causes and effects and solutions of climate change using his poem. The causes of climate change can be summed up by saying man's curiosity. The effects which are drought, flooding, volcanic eruption, wild fire and fossil fuel burning sum up the outcome effects while lastly, the solution is that he appeal to the whole world to come together to put an end to clime change

    This poem is about the rapid deterioration of the climate as a result of increase in technology which causes side effects to the environment affecting the climate negatively.
    . scientific discoveries and human explorations also add to the rapid global change of the climate and this leads to drought, air pollution, global warming and land quakes.
    This poem seeks to implore us to reduce our human explorations so as to preserve nature and life and to prevent environmental changes which would lead to catastrophic disasters.

    Basically the poem is about the world's present situation, which takes us back to the human saying "let's make the world a better place". Evolution is damaging the world which is not making it better and safer place for humans and things in it

    Global climate change is a very short and detailed poem that talks about climate and climate change in a particular country or state.
    Climate change is defined as a change in the state of the climate that can be identified by changes in the mean and or variability of its properties and that persists for an extended period typically decades or longer.
    To understand global climate change,it's imperative to first understand what global climate system is and how it operates. The global climate system is made up of the atmosphere,oceans,the cryosphere,biosphere and geosphere

    Climate change exists due to negative activities and the maladaptive nature of human beings. Such negative activities like bush burning, blocking of waterways, and environmental pollution due to chemical interface with the natural environment. The consequences of these activities on human beings can't be overemphasis as all forms of terminal diseases such as Cancer are negative effects of climate change.
    The efforts of the poet are commendable as he is enlightening the world about climate change and also sounding a note of warning on the negative effects of climate change.

    The poem reflects or gives prominence to the eradication caused by the climatic change of a geographical area which part of it is scientific discovery not excluding the inevitable effects and solutions to the problem. The poet also creates a clear visual image in the mind of the reader. The poem reflects on life and nature

    The poet's persona is quite intriguing. The poem, climate change, talks about the dangers of misuse of nature to human health. It also talks about each season and their dangers in lines 18 to 28, the different environmental changes are mentioned.

    The poet emphasises on the destructions caused by the climatic change of a country which part of it is the industrial revolution including the possible effects and solutions propounded for the restoration of such country. He also creates in the mind of the readers a visual imagery. He narrated the poem using the eye of God narrative method

    It's a good peom,it enlightens people about the causes,effect and solution of global climate change. Also,writing a poem about global climate change in general is a good attempt,because there are many people that doesn't know about it. Although,the peom is good,it would have been better if there are use figures of speech.
