Al Gore Is Afraid Of Vaclav Klaus - Scary, Isn't He?

Sphere: Related Content

I recently posted about Czech Republic President Vaclav Klaus having written his new anti-environmental-movement book, Blue Planet in Green Shackles and now he's making a visit to the US and quickly becoming one of my favorite world leaders. Klaus, who has a reputation as friend of this country and is an admirer of Milton Friedman, Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher, among other champions of freedom today offered to debate Al Gore on the topic of global warming. It doesn't appear likely that the un-credentialed faux scientist and former Vice President is likely to take him up on it anytime soon.

"I many times tried to talk to have a public exchange of views with him, and he's not too much willing to make such a conversation," Klaus said. "So I'm ready to do it."

Klaus was speaking a the National Press Building in Washington to present his new book, Blue Planet in Green Shackles - What Is Endangered: Climate or Freedom?, before meeting with Vice President Dick Cheney Wednesday.

"My answer is it is our freedom and, I might add, and our prosperity," he said.

Klaus echoes many conservatives here in the US who perceive radical environmentalism as personified in Gore as being just the latest mask on expanding statism:
"Like their (communist) predecessors, they will be certain that they have the right to sacrifice man and his freedom to make their idea reality," he said.

"In the past, it was in the name of the Marxists or of the proletariat - this time, in the name of the planet," he added.

President Klaus is a sane, clear-headed European leader, unafraid of facing down the forces of the politically correct. The world needs more like him.

I fully agree President Klaus is an excellent example of a great world leader and the Czech Republic is a better place because of his leadership. Gore is obviously afraid of him.

Gore is understandably afraid of a lot of people. He really won't debate anyone. And no wonder; he received poor grades in his Earth Science classes in college.

He makes for a very strange scientific herald, doesn't he?
