Interesting Argument About Global Warming

Personally, I always thought the whole global warming thing was a little bit overblown. Got to admit this guy makes a very compelling argument without debating any details.

Not unlike your argument here.

“President of the Czech Republic Vaclav Klaus has published an article in the Financial Times in which he seems to equate the current global warming debate with totalitarian thought control: ‘The dictates of political correctness are strict and only one permitted truth, not for the first time in human history, is imposed on us. Everything else is denounced … The scientists should help us and take into consideration the political effects of their scientific opinions. They have an obligation to declare their political and value assumptions and how much they have affected their selection and interpretation of scientific evidence.’ At the end of the article he proposes several suggestions to improve the global climate debate, including this point: ‘Let us resist the politicization of science and oppose the term “scientific consensus,” which is always achieved only by a loud minority, never by a silent majority.'”

Congrats Milan on attaining such a position. I am currently struggling to find a position in Europe but the fact I am not European is definitely making it difficult. I just may have to search back home instead. Are there any sites that exhaustively compile govt or IR related jobs back home? Good luck with the Ottawa winter…my teeth are chattering just thinking about it.
