Each haiku has been created in response to a combination of the data shown below, climate science research and news,
collected by Future Machine’s companion Rachel Jacobs and Prof John King in Spring 2024.

Hotter than ever
this strange Antarctic autumn
dreams of ice and snow.

Arctic Spring 2024
Arctic ice retreats
a loss, more than ever seen,
sea ice gone to sea.

Nottingham Spring 2024
Four weeks early
turned the wettest, warmest spring.
Pink petals near gone.
