Did Gore meet Fielding? Three guesses…
Climate change sceptic [why not just "Senator"? - Ed] Steve Fielding says he is still searching for answers after receiving the brush-off from environmental crusader Al Gore.
Senator Fielding, who holds a crucial vote in the emissions trading debate, had been trying to pin down the former US vice-president to explain one of his key climate change concerns.
But Mr Gore only managed to find time for Prime Minister Kevin Rudd during his flying visit to Australia this week.
Having offered to meet him at any time and fly to wherever he was, Senator Fielding said it was ridiculous the 2007 Nobel Prize winner didn't have five minutes to spare.
"He was aware of how important my vote was ... but obviously he felt more comfortable running to someone - our prime minister - who actually supports and believes in what's he doing," he told Fairfax Radio Network on Friday.
