President of the Czech Republic says Global Warming Doctrine is not Science

        Vaclav Klaus the President of the Czech Republic speaking at the climate conference at Cambridge Uni versity on 10 May this year said that the Global Warming Doctrine (GWD) is not a science but an ideology if not a religion.  He said that economists do not believe in the precautionary principle.  They know that energy demand and supply patterns change only slowly and they see the very high degree of stability in the relationship between man made carbon dioxide emissions, economic activity and emissions intensity. He says that they do not expect a radical shift in this relationship.  Continuing he said that if some-one wants to reduce CO2 emissions, he must either expect a revolution in economic efficiency(which determines emissions intensity) or must start organising a world wide economic decline. Revolutions in economic efficiency were never realised in the past and will not happen in the future.  It was the recent economic and financial crisis, not a technological miracle, that brought about a slight reduction in CO2 emissions.  He said that the GWD adherents should explain to the people worldwide that they consider economic decline inevitable and desirable. The arrogance with which the GWD proponents and their fellow travellers in the media and politics want to suppress the market, control society, dictate prices(directly or indirectly by means of various interventions, including taxes) is something that he knows from the past (referring to the past central doctrine of communist rule under which he lived).  He said that all the economic arguments against communism should be repeated now.
