Legendary rocker Jim Morrison’s poem ‘Woman in the Window’ has been enlisted to help fight global warming more than 35 years after the death of ‘The Doors’ frontman.

The previously unreleased poem written and recorded by Morrison shortly before his demise in 1971 will be used to publicise the Global Cool Campaign, which aims at cutting carbon emissions.

Its words describe an angel warning mankind about its actions.

The song, released by the Jim Morrison estate, has been produced by Perry Farrell, former singer with grunge band Jane's Addiction.

It will be released as a single in April, reports the BBC.

Singer KT Tunstall and actor Josh Hartnett attended that London launch of the 10-year Global Cool campaign, which is urging people to reduce carbon emissions by one tonne a year each, mostly by small changes such as using energy-saving light bulbs and switching off electrical devices.
