Naught for your comfort

July 18 2008

Speech by Al Gore.

Latest on Arctic ice.


“I tell you naught for your comfort,
Yea, naught for your desire,
Save that the sky grows darker yet
And the sea rises higher.”

But perhaps lighter should be substituted for darker: quatrain from GK Chesterton’s The Ballad of the White Horse, 1911.

    The melting of Arctic Ocean ice is not, of course, causing sea-levels to rise. The melting of Greenland’s ice is.

  2. davidderrick Says:

    On the other hand, rising sea levels will be accompanied, in some latitudes, by storms and rain.
