First, it's important to note the source of this story--earthtimes.org. Their web site says:
As such www.Earthtimes.org is a leading website that publishes news reports and the latest information relating to the human environment...To me, this means Earth Times is part of the global warming propaganda machine. You can see it in their article below, when they put climate alarmism in quotes, but list the words "global warming" without the quotes in their rather sycophantic paragraph on Gore's "accomplishments." They state Gore's global warming resume as if it's unequivocal that his awards were legit. That's what propagandists do--they shut down debate by dismissing detractors as idiots. I contend that Gore won an Oscar and Nobel Prize for NOTHING! Both awards were just cheapened even more--so congrats liberal ding-dongs!
First, I would just tell President Klaus BRAVO! He makes some terrific points below. Second, good luck getting Al Gore to debate anything. He's an incompetent nitnoid politician--not a scientist.
Washington - Czech President Vaclav Klaus said Tuesday he is ready to debate Al Gore about global warming, as he presented the English version of his latest book that argues environmentalism poses a threat to basic human freedoms. "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."
Gore a former US vice president who has become a leading international voice in the cause against global warming, was co-winner of this year's Nobel Peace Prize. Gore's effort was highlighted by his Oscar winning documentary film An Inconvienent Truth.
Klaus, an economist, said he opposed the "climate alarmism" perpetuated by environmentalism trying to impose their ideals, comparing it to the decades of communist rule he experienced growing up in Soviet-dominated Czechoslovakia.
"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.
"It could be even true that we are now at a stage where mere facts, reason and truths are powerless in the face of the global warming propaganda," he said.
Klaus alleged that the global warming was being championed by scientists and other environmentalists whose careers and funding requires selling the public on global warming.
"It is in the hands of climatologists and other related scientists who are highly motivated to look in one direction only," Klaus said.
