Don’t “Do Something” about Climate Change

by Harrison H. Schmitt Americans should think long and hard about their childrens’ future before giving up liberties and incomes to politicians in Washington and at the United Nations in the name of “doing something” about climate change.

They reflect our way of looking at things, “die Weltanschauung”, which characterizes our era. Its formation started decades ago.

by Vaclav Klaus Hilton Hotel, Portland, Oregon, September 30, 2008: During my visits in the US in the last 19 years, I made speeches on a wide range of topics.

Klaus: What is Endangered? Climate or Freedom?

by Vaclav Klaus My answer to this question is very clear and straightforward: “Endangered is freedom. Climate is OK.” After spending several years studying this issue I came to the conclusion we were deceived. The Great Global Warming Debate is not about temperature or CO2 levels. It is not a scientific dispute inside climatology.

Klaus: Global WARNing

Dr. Vaclav Klaus warns: Environmentalism as a metaphysical ideology and as a worldview has absolutely nothing to do with natural sciences or the climate itself. Unfortunately, it has nothing to do with social sciences either. Environmentalism, not preservation of nature (and of environment), is a leftist ideology. Environmentalism is a vehicle for bringing socialist government …

Ball: UN’s IPCC preying on people’s ignorance

by Dr. Tim Ball  In previous parts of this series (Parts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8), I identified the deliberate process by which climate science was hijacked to establish a political agenda of undermining developed industrialized nations.

Klaus: United Nations Climate Change Conference, New York

by Vaclav Klaus Let me raise several points to bring the issue into its proper context: 1. Contrary to the artificially and unjustifiably created world-wide perception, the increase in global temperatures has been – in the last years, decades and centuries – very small in historical comparisons and practically negligible in its actual impact upon …
