SEE SORRY SUMS OF CO2

Criss-crossed upon the blue,
ribbons of yellow hue.
Pollution from aircraft
is everywhere aloft.
It grows year upon year,
poisoning the atmosphere.

From New York to Heathrow,
three thousand mile to go.
Fuel burn of eighty ton
in ten hour flight is done.
Two hundred ton CO2
is dumped into the blue.
