Al Gore, genius

Al Gore has been arguing with the Prime Minister of Australia about the causes of the wildfires currently running amok in New South Wales.  Gore blames global warming (surprise, surprise) while ignoring the long history of wildfires in Australia:
Gore is upset with Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott's insistence that the recent New South Wales wildfires are not linked to climate change and his statement on Australian radio that "these fires are certainly not a function of climate change, they are just a function of life in Australia."
