Good afternoon John,
You know that I like you so please don't take this the wrong way, but the idea you came up with a few minutes ago of having Tim Flannery in the studio taking calls about climate change under the guise of a reasoned and balanced debate is the stupidest thing I've heard all week, and I've some some remarkably dumb things this week.
You yourself said only a few minutes before that, Tim Flannery represents one side of the debate. I'm certainly not saying don't bring him in, but if you are going to have him taking calls, you also need somebody from the other side of the argument to do the same thing, preferably at the same time…you have other segments like that on a weekly basis and they work very well.
Have a good weekend!
