This Could be Interesting

In an effort to be more balanced, or simply as an oversight, the UN has invited president Klaus to the Global Warming Conference.

Klaus promises to spice up the evening saying....

It will be a gathering of 'Gore-ites,' so they're going to be shocked that they invited me 'by mistake,' too. And I'm going to give a very tough speech.

That ought to be interesting.

Klaus garnered global attention earlier this summer with this article. This marks the first time that anyone has paid attention to what a Czech leader has said.

If only people would pay the same attention to Vaclav Havel.

  • Both of these men make thoughtful, intelligent and informed arguments, not just on the environment, but on other important issues. Havel has especially earned the right to be heard, as he has much to teach us all. Too bad they come from a small country. I can't help but wonder if they were from the UK or US or other large country if the press might not pay more attention to them. I think the best argument for putting global warming concerns on the back burner is the fact that if we don't stop making wars, there will be no one here to worry about the climate changes.

  • Australia's PM John Howard, gazzumped on global warming as the main theme of the upcoming APEC dress up party has agreed to attend the US talk fest as well.
    I expect he will be a great companion for Klaus. After all, Australia can hardly afford to go soft on this issue and risk the massive coal exports currently driving our economy.
