Rush Limbaugh: Gore’s Climate Poem Is ‘Stupid’


limbaugh-goreAl Gore penned an apocalyptic poem on climate change for his recently-released book Our Choice after his editor declined to include a chapter on what the world will look like because of global warming.

The poem has met with mixed reviews: cheers from some, jeers from conservatives, and both from various bloggers.

“Gore has unveiled a fresh and most unexpected talent,” wrote Vanity Fair’s Mark Hertsgaard. “The book’s opening chapter of concludes with a poem he wrote-21 lines of verse that are equal parts beautiful, evocative, and disturbing.”

Hertsgaard also calls Gore “the Poet Laureate of climate change.”

Rush Limbaugh, on the other hand, read the poem on his show, calling it “stupid” and reading excerpts from the Vanity Fair review. He then asked that someone “please explain to me what’s wrong with it getting warmer.”

Here is the poem in its full form:

One thin September soon
A floating continent disappears
In midnight sun

Vapors rise as
Fever settles on an acid sea
Neptune’s bones dissolve

Snow glides from the mountain
Ice fathers floods for a season
A hard rain comes quickly

Then dirt is parched
Kindling is placed in the forest
For the lightning’s celebration

Unknown creatures
Take their leave, unmourned
Horsemen ready their stirrups

Passion seeks heroes and friends
The bell of the city
On the hill is rung

The shepherd cries
The hour of choosing has arrived
Here are your tools
