Global warming alarmists as big a threat as communism



I'm no fan of voting or democracy itself. Politicians are usually nothing more than ambitious individuals willing to promise the majority to do all kinds of bad things to unpopular minorities to be/stay in power.

Vaclav Klaus, President of the Czech Republic, is, until proven otherwise, probably of the same breed as all the others. However, one one topic at least, we share the same opinions. And this topic happens to be critical as well as pervasive in today's "environment" : global warming and its causes and solutions.

Mr. Klaus, described as a "right-wing president, a free-market champion" in an Reuters article today, has this to say on climate change :

Communism has been replaced by the threat of an ambitious environmentalism.

They (developing countries) will not be able to absorb new technological standards required by the anti-greenhouse religion, their products will have difficulty accessing the developed markets, and as a result the gap between them and the developed world will widen,' he wrote.

This ideology preaches earth and nature and under the slogans of their protection – similarly to the old Marxists – wants to replace the free and spontaneous evolution of mankind by a sort of central, now global, planning of the whole world.


No government action can stop the world and nature from changing. Therefore, I disagree with plans such as the Kyoto Protocol or similar initiatives, which set arbitrary targets requiring enormous costs without realistic prospects for the success of these measures.

"

Well, Stephen Harper could find some inspiration there, as his "right-wing, free-market, anti-Kyoto" beliefs seem to have waned somewhat in the last year, pouvoir oblige...

If Mr. Klaus' actions are consistent with his discourse, we can certainly expect Czech Republic to flourish in the next years.

Good for the Czechs, good for all of us. Yeh!
