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.

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.
The Marxists will do anything for world domination.
You know what they say: Make everything idiot-proof, and they'll just come up with a more ingenious idiot.
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.
Hilliary wins the election and I am moving to Czechoslovakia
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.
Actually, just the thought of him being awarded the same award as Mother Teresa Makes me nauseous!
That is a disgrace. I couldn’t bear to look at the other nominees.
Hell we need Vaclav to come here and run for the GOP nominaiton!
Al Gore is a loon and this shows you how many other loons are in the world and why there is so much war and poverty.
Why should he be surprised? This award has been going to those who support socialist ideas.
it takes like 5 minutes or so before it shows the reply or post that i created. is that normal for the site?
No surprise here.
Nobel prize ~ Liberals giving prizes to liberals for being liberal.
Al Gore’s Nobel Peace Prize First Ever Given That Has Nothing To Do With Peace
Al Gore = American Lysenko
