Future of Civilization

State of the world, 2012, a companion to the World Watch Institute‘s papers, here.

Civilization
what will there be tomorrow
may we drink the rain

see only today
ignore toxic mountains seas
child tomorrow dies

we know not of worth
but cash flows, prices, some costs
happy counting beans
 
Fukushima and
the Deep Water Horizon
one map from Malthus

then there’s energy
from Sun and Earth wind, water
we will then flourish

Civilization
what will there be tomorrow
may we drink the rain
