Is Al Gore Blinding Us With Poetry?

Is Al Gore to poetry what Thomas Dolby was to science?

I think I liked Gore better when he and Tipper were trying to censor rock music.

But there is a method to Gore's madness. His "poetry" is a smokescreen to disperse our attention away from the excesses of environmental activism.

For every dollar spent giving countries in Africa "climate change assistance" is a dollar less to combat more acute problems facing the continent such as AIDS and malaria. How many millions of people in Africa will die of these diseases because it is more urgent to cool the earth one thousandth of one degree over the next century? Bjorn Lomborg has the answers.

I think I have the makings of a poem of my own.
