A lot of our policies remove issues and create new ones. Some we don't care about, until it's too late. So we eliminate pollution here, by adding to the pollution somewhere else, far away.

It's not the US that caused global warming, it's the corporate machine. Accelerated growth by foreign markets, do not follow the rules set by our policies. As long as we don't see it, we don't care.

Without electoral college
Manufacturing at a loss
Big states control our policy
At a hidden environmental cost

Blind to capitalism's ploy
Imported products of mass production
Creating lost jobs and unregulated pollution
While Dems praise Green with joy

Mining for an efficient battery
Toxic air from a foreign factory
Poisoning lands far and away
Ignoring an issue that will stay

By products endanger
Putting lives in danger
All this mess from politics
Cause and effect from a fix
