Global Warming Sense from the Czechs

So it takes a leader from the Czech Republic to tell it like it is. I'm referring to Czech President Vaclav Klaus in his letter to the U.S. Congress, in which he states,
"Communism has been replaced by the threat of an ambitious environmentalism."
To the clear thinking, the parallels between rabid environmentalism and communism are apparent and striking. But Klaus paints the picture even more succinctly:
"This ideology preaches earth and nature and under the slogans of their protection – similarly to the old Marxists – wants to replace the free and spontaneous evolution of mankind by a sort of central, now global, planning of the whole world.
He goes on to state mankind's impotence on effecting change within something so large and robust as the climate of the entire planet.
'No government action can stop the world and nature from changing. Therefore, I disagree with plans such as the Kyoto Protocol or similar initiatives, which set arbitrary targets requiring enormous costs without realistic prospects for the success of these measures."
Why does it take a former Eastern Bloc country to have the mettle to speak out about the obvious? Thank goodness Reagan brought down the Iron Curtain, or these anti-environmentalist words would be repressed...much the same way they're repressed here in the U.S.
