Going Short

In the short term, you need fuel. And you need fuel of a specific kind for a specific task; you cannot run an internal combustion engine on candles or coal these days. That's because the carburettor, that device that dispenses (as if by burette) carbs, is designed only for atomisation of liquid fuel and mixing it with air prior to combustion.

In the short term, so many things can be done! But if the long term is not being considered, many of those short-term things can be disastrous. And the word 'disastrous' is probably inappropriate, because all it means is 'from an evil star'. Which can be anagrammed: 'rats live for man'. And that in turn doesn't sound right at all.
