EU Ambassador to the United States John Bruton talked to Big Think about the merits of "humane" European politics and the implications of the Libson Treaty for Ireland.

He brought his uncommon combination of outsider’s and insider’s insight into how the U.S. government works to observations about the quirks of American politicians and America's stubborness on climate change.

Big Think also talked to Bruton about his home state of Ireland; he explained both the cultural effects of th Celtic Tiger economy and how much different an Irish conservative is than an American one.
