By no means will Al Gore climb in the ring with Czech President Vaclav Klaus to fight over global warming. For Gore needs a fawning press and adoring (but uneducated) liberals to continue his charade as the Green Lantern. Any genuine debate, one that would require him to give scientifically, economically, and politically sound arguments for his wild statements would be disastrous. Gore's superhero reputation just wouldn't stand under the grueling beating Klaus would give him.
Of course, Vaclav Klaus is inviting the debate in order to help tout his book, Blue Planet in Green Shackles - What Is Endangered: Climate or Freedom? It has just been translated into English but, given the "climate" created by politically-correct reporters and booksellers, Klaus understands he will have to work hard and be especially creative to win a hearing for his new book.
That is not to say that he wouldn't love the chance to actually debate Gore. Klaus has already tried many times to engage him but without success. Gore knows too well he wouldn't have a prayer. After all, unlike Gore, Vaclav Klaus knows his stuff. Furthermore, Klaus sees the grave dangers which lie on the other side of radical environmentalism. He opposes those who would exploit "climate alarmism" in order to impose their constrictive ideological agenda on on free people. Indeed, Klaus sees the global warming paranoia creating the same kind of social control perpetuated by the Soviet Communists who for several decades dominated Czechoslovakia.
Says Klaus, "Like their (communist) predecessors, they will be certain that they have the right to sacrifice man and his freedom to make their idea reality. In the past, it was in the name of the Marxists or of the proletariat - this time, in the name of the planet. It could be even true that we are now at a stage where mere facts, reason and truths are powerless in the face of the global warming propaganda."
