A brief letter to an incompetent excuse for a Prime Minister

John Howard,

Please, stop being such an anti-intellectual. First you had a problem with historians, and now you're going to stick your fingers in your ears and shout "la la la NUCLEAR POWAH la la la I'm not listening la la la NUCLEAR POWAAAAAHHHH!" while ignoring scientific data on global warming? You're an absolute disgrace to this country and thoroughly impossible to take seriously.

Sincerely,
Intelligent People of Australia

PS I am not inherently opposed to nuclear power, I just think it's laughable that John Howard routinely sticks his head in the sand when the issue of global warming comes up, no matter how many scientists present verifiable data and debunk the claims of the crackpots who say things that Mr Howard likes, or when he does bother to somewhat acknowledge the scientists and their data, he just uses the opportunity as a means to push his nuclear power agenda.
