Midnight Oil Singer becomes Australias Environment Minister

It seems the new Australian government is concentrating on the "Three E's" - Education, Environment and Economy.

Giving a prominent Environmental activist the position of Environment Minister is also a promising move that they are serious about their commitments too. Although I do wonder if I'll ever not think of Midnight Oil's 80's hit "Beds Are Burning" whenever I hear him talk :p

Good luck to them and I hope more countries, inclduing my own, wise up to this with actions of their own one day.
