    I went to the meeting, I offered my opinion that people are turned off of activist groups because they are seen as having no sense of humour. I told them about a letter I sent to John Key regarding his review of the science of climate change, an excerpt of which reads:

    “My only problem is that I think you are not taking this review of science far enough, In my opinion it should be extended to this hogwash I’ve been hearing about the shape of the planet.

    It doesn’t take a fancy University education to look out the window and see that the earth is plainly flat. It would seem that all these muddle headed “scientists’ lack even a modicum of common sense.”

    It went over quite well I was jokingly offered a position as their comedy columnist.
