Climate Alarmism: Czech President Compares Global Warming Propoganda to Communism
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."
