Speaking in New York at the Heartland Institute’s Second International Conference on Climate Change, at Czech President Vaclav Klaus, who currently holds the EuroPresidency, says,
“The questions which need to be answered [about the science and the politics of global warming] are serious and non-trivial. Should we make radical decisions now? Should we tax today's generations to benefit future generations? Should we be generously altruistic? Should we give preference to future generations and not to the people living in undeveloped countries today? My answer is no."
