More 'Global Warming' Foolishness

Nearly two weeks ago, Czech president Vaclav Klaus warned that radical environmentalism is a threat to freedom.
"The approach of environmentalists toward nature is similar to the Marxist approach to economic rules, because they also try to replace free spontaneity of the evolution of the world (and of mankind) with ... global planning of the world's development," Klaus writes in his book.

"That approach ... is a utopia leading to completely other than wanted results," he says.

Klaus, an economist by profession, has repeatedly warned that policy makers are pushed by the widespread fear of global warming to adopt enormously costly programs that eventually may have no positive effect.
That statement was made May 16, 2007.

Just ten days later, it appears that
Klaus is right
Secret plans to encourage the nation to give up eating meat are being examined by the Government.

A leaked e-mail expresses sympathy for the environmental benefits of a mass switch to a vegan diet - a strict form of vegetarianism which bans milk, dairy products and fish.

The change would need to be done "gently" because of a "risk of alienating the public", according to the document.

The extreme policy is being examined on the basis it could make a major contribution to slowing climate change.

Farm animals are blamed for producing huge amounts of the greenhouse gases methane and carbon dioxide.

However, the National Farmers' Union has ridiculed the idea as "simplistic".
I have another description and it's not very nice.
The e-mail, sent to a vegetarian campaign group, comes from an official at the Environment Agency, a Government advisory body.
No shrinking violet, Klaus did humanity a tremendous favor when he questioned Al Gore's sanity this past February.
