John Howard Says Something Dumb

Prime Minister John Howard, a friend and ally of Bush, said he would not meet Gore during his Australian visit and would not heed his advice to sign up to Kyoto.

I don’t take policy advice from films,” Howard told reporters.

Now I don’t really know much about Prime Minister Howard, but what a stupid thing to say. The former Vice President of the US, who has a long history of public service, makes an informational film about his most passionate personal cause – a film based on hard facts and hard science – and Prime Minister John Howard is just way too cool for that. After all, why would he want his government’s policy to be informed by people that are extremely knowledgeable?
