Prague–President Vaclav Klaus has failed to understand the essence of global climate change, leading Czech climatologist Jan Pretl said today at a conference at which climatologists discussed the strategy of communication with the media to prevent misunderstanding of the global warming problem.

(Praha–Klimatologové dnes na konferenci v Praze hledali strategii komunikace s médii, aby zamezili nepochopení tématu globální klimatické změny. Výsledky jejich bádání podle předního českého klimatologa Jana Pretla nepochopil ani prezident Václav Klaus.)

They have a good plan.

Vědci chtějí lépe komunikovat s veřejností o klimatických změnách“Měli bychom výsledky, které mají vědecký podklad a nejsou spekulativní, zjednodušenou formou předávat do médií,” zní podle Pretla jedno z doporučení konference.

Vystoupení Klause na konferenci OSN a reakce českých médií na ně podle Pretla účastníky konference pobavily.

in other words:

(Czech scientists want better communication on climate change

“The results that are based on scientific facts and are not speculations will be provided to the media in a simplified form,” Pretel quoted one of the conference’s recommendation as saying.

He said the participants in the conference were amused both by Klaus’s speech at the U.N. conference and by the Czech media reaction to it.)
