I saw the show and it confirmed for me that I am doing the right thing by
never watching 60 mins. To quote Austen Tayshus "48 minutes of bullshit and
12 minutes of commercials". There is no way to know what went on because
they edit it to be exciting and confrontational and ignore the rest even if
it is necessary to put the whole thing in context. Anyway, There's this
Danish guy, Bjorn somebody, who is minister for the environment over there
and has written a book about how there really is no environmental
catastrophe in the making and we can just keep on burning fossil fuels and
procreating and it will all be OK. Pete was chatting to this guy via webcast
and basically just saying common sense stuff, he is very level-headed and
well-informed after all. Anyway, there was a little bit of conflict which
was probably a setup by journo Richard Carlton, and that's what the segment
focused on. I did record it, but I don't think it's worth transcribing

On another note, I can't believe I am going to the last 2 shows of this tour
on Wednesday and Thursday. Lucky Country indeed!

My brother texted me and said that PG got beaten in an argument on 60
minutes and the snippet on the site is too short to get a grasp on the
arguments being put forth. Anyone got a transacript or something similar...
so I can start to put my bro back in his place ! :-) Who is this Bjorn
