Václav Klaus: 20 interviews in Australia

Czech President Václav Klaus has arrived to Australia. The Czech embassy was contacted by a whopping number of 20 outlets - newspapers, TV shows (Andrew Bolt: Klaus will be on TV on Sunday), shock jocks (Klaus will probably visit Alan Jones as well) etc.


So the Czech ambassador had more work and saw more Australian interest in the Czech Republic than during the previous years combined. ;-)

Here is an interview for ABC Perth: click for a 12-minute audio. The host is trying to convince Klaus that there are rational scientists on the alarmist side and Klaus de facto argues that it is probably not the case. In the second half, Klaus explains the difference between the EU and the eurozone (the host apparently thinks that we're members of it) and the fundamental errors in their foundations that he's been pointing out for decades.

Václav Klaus arrives to Australia: an interview

Right now, Czech President Václav Klaus is on his 20-hour flight to Australia where he will be speaking about the threat of climate alarmism in 6 cities.

The tickets are unfortunately very expensive, something like $180: all expenses including commercial flight tickets (only for Klaus: his wife stayed at home) are paid for by the organizers of the talks. The trip is the closest thing to a vacation that Klaus has this summer.

Nevertheless, people around Perth should look at the schedule below because Klaus delivers his speech there on Friday, July 22nd. You may tell your rich friends to attend the event.

Meanwhile, Klaus gave an interview for the Australian. He talked about the tight link between GDP and CO2 emissions, similarities between alarmism and communism, and plans of some alarmists to dismantle democracy, among other things.

On July 20th, renowned climate skeptic and Czech President Prof Václav Klaus will leave for his two-week Australian tour.

Klaus during his recent meeting (video) with a fellow tennis player, Wimbledon Champion Ms Petra Kvitová. When Kvitová was 6, Klaus met her in her town of Fulnek and wished her to go far in life. ;-) Incidentally, Klaus was just unanimously elected the President of the Štvanice tennis club in Prague, the oldest TC in Czechia.

You may register for the events here. Don't forget to bring your 6-year-old kids and grandkids to the events. :-) That page also contains many more details surrounding his lectures on the global warming hysteria.

The rough schedule - dates and cities - looks like this:
  • Perth: July 22nd
  • Sydney: July 25th
  • Canberra: July 26th
  • Melbourne: July 28th
  • Brisbane: August 1st
  • Coolum Beach: similar date: this talk is about monetary policy, however
