Hello, and happy Poem In Your Pocket Day! We thought we’d celebrate with a climate-news poem. Because this is also Katharine Is Really Busy Day, it’s not a long poem. However! There will be more climate-change poems coming your way soon. Only on Grist.org.

“The heat may be nearing,
But we need more hearings,
So we can air all of the facts, man.”
