“The quality of the environment monotonically increases with the wealth of the human society. Does anyone want to deny it?”
“My answer was – and it’s still true now, eight years later – that the climate is alright but it is the human freedom that is threatened. It is threatened by those people who want to return us to an unfree society directed from the top, a society dominated by the manipulation of the people, mandatory uniformity of their thinking, and dictates. Several days ago, a man from Germany’s Ingolstadt wrote me that he was terrified by a new “faschistischer Meinungsdiktatur” (a fascist opinion dictatorship) that he seems to see around himself and that seems to return us towards our troubled past.”
“The world leaders’ hallucinations in Paris are going beyond the thresholds we were used to in the past. A new agreement is being delineated that would decelerate the economic growth in the whole world and reduce the human freedom, too. This project is nonsensical. We should be worried about other threats than the global warming. The most serious one is the risk of a collapse of Europe as we knew it by the migrant invasion.” ~ Václav Klaus: On the absurdity of the Paris climate conference, Czech ex-president, published in “The Week” (Týden) in CZ.
