Four Horsemen

Fossil fuels
superheating the wind
melting the glaciers
acidifying the oceans

Nuclear power
poisoning the planet
making Armageddon a question
of when not if

speeding the rise of CO2 levels
visiting irreversible destruction
on the biosphere

exhausting the soils
and sucking dry the aquifers
where had been wilderness.
