Get Your Meds, al-Goracle

Once again slapping The Goracle and his psychophants, President Vaclav Klaus discussed the status of the current 'debate' about 'global warming'. He did so Thursday, prior to the Prague screening of the UK's The Great Global Warming Swindle.
Klaus: Warming uproar reminds of communist campaigns

Czech President Vaclav Klaus again warned against the hysteria that he said surrounds the global warming issue at the presentation of the controversial British documentary The Great Global Warming Swindle in a Prague cinema today.

Klaus said the unilateral campaign accompanying the issue reminds him of similar [propaganda] "massages" under the communist regime.

"This is no belittling of communism that some permanently try to reproach me for. It is only a warning that the methods, practices and withholding of counter-arguments were applied here in the past already," Klaus said.

The hysteria threatens freedom and democracy, he continued. "Much is at stake," he added.

Klaus said he welcomes the film by Martin Durkin as an attempt to bring the debate on climate changes "back to the ground" and towards reasonable thinking.

"It would be wonderful if the film were bought by our cinemas and some of our TV stations [for screening]," Klaus said at the film presentation organised by the Centre for Economics and Politics (CEP), an association he is close to.

Klaus is known as a fierce challenger of both the human factor in and the widely forecast effects of global warming.

Vojtech Kotecky from the Czech environmental organisation Friends of the Earth told CTK that many criticise Durkin's film for alleged manipulation of the interviewed experts, some of whom have reportedly accused Durkin of distorting information and their statements.
No names, no credibiity, asshat.
Klaus, nevertheless, said he welcomes the documentary as a desirable alternative to the Oscar-winning film An Inconvenient Truth in which former U.S. Vice-President Al Gore warns against the threats of global warming and calls for measures to be taken to prevent it.
Funny how Vojtech Kotecky doesn't mention the increasing numbers of scientific experts that have truthed the Goracle's propaganda film -- debunking it and the junk science it cites.
Durkin's film, on its part, describes developments around climate changes as propaganda motivated by economic profit and political interests.
