Klaus Criticized For His UN Speech

In Economy, Politics on September 25, 2007 by Petr Bokuvka Tagged: ,

Czech president Vaclav Klaus is criticized by top Czech politiciansfor his United Nations speech about global warming, the Hospodarske noviny daily notes. Klaus, to put it simply, does not believe global warming is a problem, and he even believes that global warming is practically nonexistent…

According to the daily, the speech was unfortunate(opposition leader Jiri Paroubek) and a mistake (activists). The Green Party politicians hope the speech won’t do any damage.

I was afraid this would be worse. Feels like the president’s speech was not as radical, he was a lone soldier in the battlefield in this issue, said the Green Party chairman Martin Bursik.

Opposition leader Jiri Paroubek focused on Klaus’ statement that “steps that are taken in order to fight global warming suppress economic freedom”. Yes, Mr. President. Freedom is indeed suppressed. But definitely not by trying to solve the problems of global warming, but by ignoring thereof, Paroubek said.

  1. Free Burma!
    International Bloggers’ Day for Burma on the 4th of October

    International bloggers are preparing an action to support the peaceful revolution in Burma. We want to set a sign for freedom and show our sympathy for these people who are fighting their cruel regime without weapons. These Bloggers are planning to refrain from posting to their blogs on October 4 and just put up one Banner then, underlined with the words „Free Burma!“.
