klaus says environmental extremism modern equivalent of communism

The above link will take tou to an article concerning comments made by Czech President Vaclav Klaus in response to the Algore Travelin' Salvation Show that just hit D.C. The most important part of this column can be found in the following quote:

In a letter issued Monday to the energy panel, Klaus wrote, "It becomes evident that while discussing climate we are not witnessing a clash of views about the environment, but a clash of views about human freedom."
Responding to questions by U.S. Rep. Joe Barton, R-Texas, and former House Speaker Denny Hastert, R-Ill., the Czech leader said: "As someone who lived under communism for most of my life I feel obliged to say that the biggest threat to freedom, democracy, the market economy and prosperity at the beginning of the 21st century is not communism or its various softer variants. Communism was replaced by the threat of ambitious environmentalism."

I would expand the "ambitious environmentalism" part of his quote to say "socialist, secular progressivism," and I agree that it is just as dangerous as the Communism of the Cold War, and Islamofascism of the war on radical Islam. All three have the stated goal of destroying the America of our Fathers.
