The Crisis of Global Warming Solved

Capture an asteroid
say, Ganymed
286 million-billion pounds
and push it to Lagrange Point L1
the spot where the gravitational pull of the sun
and the earth
cancel each other out

Run an engine
to spew out a cloud of dust,
anchored by Ganymed’s gravity,
which will block sunlight
and cool the Earth

The crisis of global warming solved
No more fussing
Industrial progress can proceed
Full speed ahead!
