Global Warming Hoax Threatens Freedom

I have not been able to update this blog as often as I would like and have had this item for a few weeks. I have been meaning to post it, but I haven’t really had a chance until now.

Last month, the Australian published an edited extract of a speech that was given by Vaclav Klaus at the 2008 International Conference on Climate Change in New York on March 4. Below is an excerpt from that speech:

“As a politician who personally experienced communist central planning of all kinds of human activities, I feel obliged to bring back the already almost forgotten arguments used in the famous plan-versus-market debate in the 1930s in economic theory (between Mises and Hayek on the one side and Lange and Lerner on the other), the arguments we had been using for decades until the moment of the fall of communism. The innocence with which climate alarmists and their fellow-travellers in politics and media now present and justify their ambitions to mastermind human society belongs to the same fatal conceit. To my great despair, this is not sufficiently challenged, neither in the field of social sciences, nor in the field of climatology.

The climate alarmists believe in their own omnipotency, in knowing better than millions of rationally behaving men and women what is right or wrong. They believe in their own ability to assemble all relevant data into their Central Climate Change Regulatory Office equipped with huge supercomputers, in the possibility of giving adequate instructions to hundreds of millions of individuals and institutions.

We have to restart the discussion about the very nature of government and about the relationship between the individual and society. We need to learn the uncompromising lesson from the inevitable collapse of communism 18 years ago. It is not about climatology. It is about freedom.”

He is correct. If you look at how the global warming hoax is being perpetuated and the extremism that is being used, it is just a matter of time until our freedoms are further eroded. It’s time to stand up against these lies.

    I’ve been preaching this all along. Global warming is about lifestyle manipulation and government control through taxation and brute force.
