Down under

Australian Industry Minister Ian Macfarlane on Al Gore's film, "An Inconvenient Truth:"

"There are three places I do not go for advice on climate change," fumed Industry Minister Ian Macfarlane, dismissing the film in which Gore singles out Australia as trailing the rest of the world on climate change.

"One of them is to unsuccessful candidates for the US presidency who cannot even convince their own people that they are right. The second place is the movie," he said, adding that the third was the Australian opposition.

Votes for Al Gore in 2000: 51,003,926
Population of Australia: 20,555,300

What a dumbass. Plus, attacking the messenger(s) and refusing to even see the film are such intellectually courageous positions to take, aren't they?
