Apparently, Radiohead singer Thom Yorke was asked by Friends of the Earth UK to meet with Tony Blair about climate change.

Uh, what?

And supposedly he wrote about it on his blog, although I can’t find the entry there. I can only find it quoted in the press. Here’s a bit of it:

Friends Of The Earth have asked me whether I would meet Tony Blair at Downing Street to discuss what our government is not doing about climate change. I don’t know if this will ever happen for certain. It is rattling around in the back of my mind and concerns me a lot. I have no intention of being used by spider spin doctors to make it look like we make progress when it is just words.

Blair has been uttering nonsense lately about Kyoto and such, real la la stuff… looks like the American right have finally eaten his mind. Why on earth would I meet this man? Or perhaps that is exactly why I should. But i dont have powers of persuasion, i just have temper and an acid tongue.

The American right has finally eaten Blair’s mind. Indeed.

In other news, damn I can’t wait for that new Radiohead album.
