Czech president Vaclav Klaus: "surprised" at Nobel prize for Gore
Eux via Drudge report ^ | Oct 12, 2007 | not specified

Posted on 10/12/2007 10:28:58 AM PDT by RDTF

Prague (dpa) - Czech President Vaclav Klaus, a rare vocal global- warming sceptic among heads of state, is "somewhat surprised" that former US vice president Al Gore received the Nobel Peace Prize, the president's spokesman Petr Hajek said in a statement.

"The relationship between his activities and world peace is unclear and indistinct," the statement said. "It rather seems that Gore's doubting of basic cornerstones of the current civilization does not contribute to peace."

Klaus said in a recent speech that environmentalists' efforts to halt global warming "fatally endanger our freedom and prosperity."

The Czech president publicly expresses doubt on what scientists, including those participating in the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, also this year's Nobel Peace Prize laureate, deem very likely - that global warming is caused by humans.

He also said that rising temperatures may not matter enough for governments to throw funds at halting the process.

In a newspaper interview earlier this year, Klaus said that only Al Gore, and not a sane person, would say that mankind is ruining the planet.

Speaking for myself, I cannot say I was surprised, rather a bit disappointment. But it´s not as if the decision is shocking. The Comittee is well known for its leftists views. What has Gore done for world peace??

The Limits to Growth, malthusian, Gaia, Silent Spring aggregate is determined to reduce earth's human population to 200 million, of which all would be them.

That's not what the Nobel Peace Prize is about anyway. It's about the relationship of the winner's activities to world socialism.

Of course, the socialists believe that when we have universal socialism, we'll have peace.

Or else.

We need Vaclav to make an appearance in this country and speak to the people. I know that he would never be allowed on our university campus's as they only allow speech that supports their leftist philosophy or in someway is anti American or anti freedom. But the people need to listen carefully to what he has to say, we need to give him a forum.

Central Europe may be last holdout against world stupidity.
West Europe is pretty much down the tube and the US is doing its best to follow.
I plan to stay put here for now.

The Czech President is a good guy, he knows this global warming agenda is BS. I’d say we should send Gore over there to listen to him, but the Czechs have already seen enough of communism. Not that Gore would listen anyway—what we need is for Vaclav to come over here and speak about the fakery behind Gore and the global warmingites for the public to hear.

And frankly, I agree with him—just why the hell DID Gore win this? Even if he made an accurate film about global warming that still has nothing to do with peace. And the fact that you can win Nobel prizes nowadays for making inaccurate, unscientific films to further your political agenda is disgusting.

They lived under a lot of BS and propaganda and know that communism is evil and doesn’t work. It’s some of these American and Western European politicians who’ve never experienced it first hand who think it’s great.

President Vaclav Klaus rules!

President George W Bush, please take note that at least one president has the gonads to understand what a scam this is.

The Nobel Peace Prize Committee has made the most stupid choice of all time, exceeding even that of Yasser Arafat. Exceeding even the choice of Peanut Broker Jimmuh Cahtah.

I'm conflicted with this.

One of the nominees was a woman who rescued over 2000 children from the Nazis. I just shake my head at the thought of her losing out to a fraud like Gore.

On the other hand, she deserves a lot better than being included in the same group as Gore, Jimmah and Arafat.

Yes. Sometimes I wish people like Klaus, the Polish leaders, and the Baltics would form their own "union" and keep separate from the Brussels EU. Otherwise, they are bound to be corrupted sooner or later.

“Al Gore = American Lysenko”



Except Lysenko was a scientist... abet one that thought he could teach regular wheat to be winter resistant.And with Stalin's help threw scientists working on genetics for real winter wheat

Lysenko was not a scientist, he was a charlatan who caused real scientists to be killed or sent to the gulags.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trofim_Lysenko

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lysenkoism

His theories were discredited eventually and declared fraudulent.

Of course Stalin had anyone proposing a solution to the crop disasters of forced collectivism, he had them work on improving crop yields. Lysenko was supported by Stalin not because he was a success but he appeared to ‘talk the talk’ and to find a convenient scapegoat for the Stalinist agricultural failure in scientific genetics which Lysenko succeeded in branding a bourgois pseudoscience oriented towards conspiracy against Soviet agriculture.

Lysenko and Lysenkoism are mentioned when we spot a scientific fraud in our midst who uses propaganda and political power to further their scientific fraud and who silences opposition via friends in powerful political places.

Sounds exactly like Al Gore.

President Claus now understands just how dis-associated from reality the Nobel Peace Prize award has become.
