Now, thanks to our friend Professor Bob Carter, we’ve found another one. At the recent EU summit, Czech President Vaclav Klaus first made a pitch for nuclear energy, lamenting its absence in the EU energy plan. Boy, can we sympathize. Then he went on to address the issue of global arming, saying:
“…The future discussion on the EU’s energy policy…should be conducted on the basis of rational considerations about possible connections of the energy industry and climatic changes.’ He said at the press conference that ‘what is concisely referred to as global warming, is a fatal mistake of the present time.’ Klaus said that first a reply must be given to the question whether something like this does exist, and if it does, whether it is connected with human activities. ‘And if any movement in temperatures does occur, and it will in any case be x-times smaller than what some bearers of disastrous news claim, will it be any problem for man?'” Klaus said.”
Who is Vaclav Klaus, you ask? Here’s a link to his bio. You’ll see he’s a pretty smart guy who came from a career in economics and finance before becoming President. He clearly is skeptical, doesn’t buy into the herd mentality.
In other words, don’t go looking for this story in the WaPo, either.
