our choiceWhen Al Gore was writing his new book “Our Choice”, he reportedly wanted to include a chapter describing the ghoulish hell one might experience in a world where global warming is left unchecked. His editor, however, shot him down — and the former Vice President compromised with a poem instead.

“When I submitted the manuscript to the publisher,” Gore said to The Huffington Post’s William Petrocelli, “my editor wanted to know who wrote it, because I hadn’t attributed it to anyone.” I told him, ‘William Butler Yeats.'”

“When he acted like he might believe me, I had to tell him ‘No, no, I wrote it!'”

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
