Lord Deben: "I think the Australian government must be one of the most ignorant governments I've ever seen"


The Guardian 5 June 2014:

recent study by Globe showed that 66 countries, accounting for 88% of global emissions, have passed climate laws.
While most countries were already taking action to tackle rising temperatures - another reason why a deal might be achieved at the crunch climate talks in Paris next year - Lord Deben singled out two countries, Australia and Canada, for criticism.
Australia in particular, where the government has repealed climate change and environmental laws, was behaving "appallingly".
"I think the Australian government must be one of the most ignorant governments I've ever seen in the sense, right across the board, on immigration or about anything else, they're totally unwilling to listen to science or logic," he said.

Can Tony Abbott bring this federal government any lower in the world's estimation than this?

* Lord Deben is a Conservative life peer sitting in the U.K. House of Lords, with varied business interests including being a non-executive director of the Catholic Herald newspaper.
