Executive of Arab Airline Doesn't Like Al Gore. Whoda Thunk It?

The Executive Vice-Chairman of Emirates airline, based in Dubai, said An Inconvenient Truth by Al Gore is "rubbish." Shocking isn't it. I would imagine that it is in the interest of all airline executives to poo poo global warming seeing as how their businesses burn tons of fossil fuels daily. And even more shocking that someone who works for a company based in Dubai, which gains its wealth from oil profits, would criticize the movie.

Also, the executive claims to have watched the movie three times. Why? Did he see it as one of those movies that was so bad it was funny? Or maybe he had to watch it three times to find all the piddling little nit-picks he is sure to find.
