A 2000 page report on climate change came out recently. Even the condensed version is 27 pages long.

Climate Change 2013

For experts in the various fields addressed it seems to be very moving - one meteorologist cried and vowed never to fly again.

IPCC report makes US meteorologist cry - give up flying

An oceanographer put together 19 Haiku verses to illustrate some of the assessments in this report.

The Entire IPCC Report in 19 Illustrated Haiku

Haiku is a poetic form. There are 3 lines with 17 total syllables distributed in a 5/7/5 syllable count.

Poetic Form: Haiku

I thought I would try one myself:

Water: where are you?
I am tied up in the sky
with my contrail friends

Nice thread luxordelphi
Don't want to turn what seems to be a frivolous thread, serious - or perhaps I do …
Haiku is a most misunderstood poetry form and is nothing like as simple as is presented in these 19 “haiku”. Yet it can carry a powerful message into the mind of the reader.

The haiku format is indeed syllable bound so that the writer needs to think concisely, just as we need to do with global warming. However, the poem is also “bipolar”. One part sets a scene. The second stretches the thinking of reader - and the writer. Haiku are not obvious, it is not a simple expression of causality. The second part does not simply show the consequences of the observation made in the first part.

Not trying to be serious, just saying. In fact the fun begins when trying to write haiku correctly.

Good Haiku are to me, a powerful lesson in abstract reasoning, much better than those pattern-type abstract reasoning tests that probably evolved because giving a score to true abstraction is too subjective for those analysing the test (because they might themselves not appreciate abstraction).

Enough meandering, here is the real point. I believe good haiku can be an excellent and powerful way to get others to truly think about real issues – like global warming and all our individual contributions that are making it such a success.

So if we let the first part of the haiku (the first two lines) set the scene, then we add the second part (the third line) seems to be unrelated to the first part. Of course there is a connection, one that is relevant to me and my thinking, and I challenge the reader to seek his own relevance within his life's experience.

Taking the first haiku presented by Gregory C Johnson might then read like this...
(not claining these are good, but they are illustrative)

Big, fast carbon surge:
Ice melts, oceans heat and rise
We fill our gas tanks

Carbon increases:
Air warms through century past.
Venus shines aloft

Abyss warms, coasts flood.
Air moistens – salt patterns shift.
Whales swim slowly by


So. what offers are there on this line?

That's fantastic! perhaps next you can do a thread on how you get around. You know, like how you just ride a bike, or walk, or paddle a boat. I think everyone would like to hear how you have adapted to your surroundings completely boycotting the fuel burning ways. I look forward to reading it.

Persistent contrails
Transform to become cirrus
My tea kettle burns

Stratospheric trails
Emitting their chemistry
Sunshine, a stranger

Cool. Now that is the spirit of haiku. You can even get more abstract. Encourage thinking not just following. If everything is explained in too much detail, thinking is both superfluous and suppressed. Haiku must make the reader become involved in the statement (and hopefully a part of the solution in this case). And a playful, mischievousness (almost taunting) is an acceptable part of haiku.

Gregory C Johnson 4

Glaciers and ice sheets
Melt worldwide, speed increasing
Faster fast foods please

What better way to relate real issues to the present “reality” of commercialism that has such relevance to global warming and contrails.

Indeed, what is not a part of Nature, is apart from Nature.

Nature's patience
Greatest force of survival
Man makes his challenge
