Al Gore has provided endless hours of laughing and entertainment for Glenn and his audience over the years.
Glenn described the former Vice President and failed presidential hopeful as the “poet laureate of climate change” on his radio program Friday.
Gore may have reached the highest point of his entertainment value when co-host Pat Gray performed a dramatic reading of Gore's climate change poem, which Gore originally shared with James Hanson on the CBS morning show years ago.
Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program.
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 father’s floods for a season
A hard rain comes quickly
Then dirt is parched
Kindling is placed in the forest
For the lightning’s celebration
Take their leave, un-mourned
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
– Al Gore
“That was beautiful,” Glenn said.
After co-host Stu Burguiere walked through failed prediction after failed prediction of global warming catastrophes, co-host Pat Gray jumped in with his own thoughts about the poem.
“All of that may be true, Stu, but fever has settled on an acid sea, and Neptune's bones have dissolved... Will he take his leave un-mourned as unknown creatures have? I don't know,” Pat said. "I don't know."
Stu kept it going.
“Who is going to mourn a creature they don't know about?” Stu asked. “Why would you do that? Of course, you don't do that. That would be stupid.”
Thank you Al Gore --- thank you for our tools. Tool.
