Prague, Oct 26 (CTK) – Several dozens of “polar bears” Monday called on Czech President Vaclav Klaus “to keep on campaigning against the myth of global warming” in a petition handed out outside the presidential seat, apparently ridiculing his views on climate change and also the European Union.

The slogan “Our country will not be defrosted” recalled the phrase “Our country will not be subverted” that had been used as part of campaigns against the opponents of the communist regime in the 1950s, thus associating Klaus’s rhetorics with communist hardline style of fighting against enemies.
