According to an article posted at earthtimes.org, Klaus is "opposed [to] the 'climate alarmism' perpetuated by environmentalism trying to impose their ideals." He compares the extremists of today to communist rule in Czechoslovakia. "Like their (communist) predecessors," Klaus said, "they will be certain that they have the right to sacrifice man and his freedom to make their idea reality."
But it may be too late for rational debate. Klaus worried that "it could be even true that we are now at a stage where mere facts, reason and truths are powerless in the face of global warming propaganda."
Let's hope not.
