Are you tired of trying to understand the 600-page Stern Review (eg. this perplexing graph showing a 13.8% loss of GDP in 193 years from now!)? Luckily, the government’s finest minds are rumoured to be preparing a simplified version in limerick form. Here’s my effort:
Warming will cost twenty per cent
But stopping it will barely dent
The world’s GDP
Or its security
So it must be money well spent
As must be obvious, poetry was never a strength – and that probably isn’t even a limerick. So I’m sure others can do better… Please submit entries as comments to this blog posting and forward to any talented colleagues. If we get enough, I’ll ask the great man himself to judge. Haiku also accepted.
