President of the Czech Republic Vaclav Klaus speaks to Rob Broadfield on 720 Mornings about his views on climate change, his country's communist past, the European Union and the current debt crisis facing many of his European neighbours.
While many are familiar with "Lord" Christopher Monckton, fewer would be aware one of the world's biggest climate sceptics is the President of the Czech Republic.
However, President Vaclav Klaus doesn't like the labels 'climate change' or 'denier'.
"I don't like to be called 'denier'; I am a scientist, an economist and politician who doesn't think in terms of denying and not denying," President Klaus told Rob Broadfield on 720 Mornings.
The President is in Australia to speak at a series of seminars organised by Australian think tank, the Institute of Public Affairs and he will also meet the Czech community in Sydney.
Apart from climate change, President Klaus spoke about his country's communism past, then known as Czechoslovakia, the European Union and the current European debt crisis.
