Slovakia president rejects nomination of opponent of climate change policy as environment minister

Slovakia’s president announced Thursday that she is postponing the appointment of a new Cabinet following last month’s parliamentary election because she cannot accept the nomination of a person who doesn’t believe in the threat of climate change as environment minister. Liberal President Zuzana Caputova said Rudolf Huliak, who was nominated by the ultranationalist and pro-Russian Slovak National Party, could not ensure the proper functioning of the ministry because he opposes the government’s long-term environmental policies and Slovakia’s international obligations.

          Rejecting an environment minister who is out of step with these goals is a step in the right direction.

          This is very great work. There should be no reward for those who are not at the forefront with the government agenda

                      This decision shows a commitment to prioritizing environmental protection and sustainability. It is important for leaders to appoint individuals who understand the urgency and importance of addressing climate change, as it is one of the most pressing issues of our time. By taking this action, Slovakia's president is sending a message that climate change denial has no place in government and that action must be taken to mitigate its effects.

                        A candidate who has not recognized the scientific consensus on climate change and asserts no real climate crisis exists cannot be in charge and represent a ministry whose main role is the protection of nature, landscape and the Earth’s climate system. The best statement I read today! We need such leaders that Walk the talk...I can't add more.

                          @patrick_kiash In other words you can't sell what you don't eat. We need a leader who knows what he or she is doing for the greater good.
