Climate denialists in the FT

Is there a reason why the Financial Times published Czech president Vaclav Klaus’s ill-informed rant against climate change? A brief taste of the nonsense:

As someone who lived under communism for most of his life, I feel obliged to say that I see the biggest threat to freedom, democracy, the market economy and prosperity now in ambitious environmentalism, not in communism. This ideology wants to replace the free and spontaneous evolution of mankind by a sort of central (now global) planning.

Perhaps someone on the FT is auditioning for a role on the Wall Street Journal editorial page, where Klaus would be in fine company.
