A Man Among Children...

At the UN global warming hug fest, we heard from the granola children - flakes, fruits and nuts. It was now time to hear from a statesman and an adult, Vaclav Klaus, President of the Czech Republic. I quote from his remarks.

When looking for an appropriate reaction to the problems connected with the current crisis, we should build on the idea that the crisis was basically a failure of governments, not markets.

Let us not delude ourselves that the economic cycle and its consequences can be prevented by the more extensive government regulation or by aiming at global governance of the world economy.

I do, however, want to emphasize that the measures proposed to combat climate change represent another heavy burden, for both the developed countries which are falling into deep fiscal deficits now and for developing countries and this is in a situation when the rich countries, often pushing this agenda at international forums, are losing their ability to compensate the poorer countries for the impact of these additional costs.

He then added this parting shot to a reporter.

"It was sad and it was frustrating. It's a propagandistic exercise where 13-year-old girls from some far-away country perform a pre-rehearsed poem," he said. "It's simply not dignified."

He is my favorite foreign leader. Having grown up under Communism he understands what freedoms are at stake if the world buys into this hoax.

Since Americans don't seem to care about the Constitutional requirement for a natural born citizen anymore, I say Vaclav Klaus for President 2012! Or at least someone with the cojones to speak the truth about the global warming hoax.

"Global warming is a false myth and every serious person and scientist says so. It is not fair to refer to the U.N. panel. The IPCC is not a scientific institution: it's a political body, a sort of non-government organization of green flavor. It's neither a forum of neutral scientists nor a balanced group of scientists. These people are politicized scientists who arrive there with a one-sided opinion and a one-sided assignment." -- Vaclav Klaus
