Hugo’s environmental views:

Chavez has argued that powerful nations are responsible for causing global warming. What is more, he has publicly regretted pollution resulting from traditional sources of energy. He has called on developed nations to look more favorably on alternative energy such as gas, hydro and solar power. To its credit, Venezuela has ratified the Kyoto Protocol reducing greenhouse gas emissions …

In his 2005 address to the United Nations, Hugo Chavez derided what he called “a socioeconomic model that has a galloping destructive capacity.” The Venezuelan president expressed concern about “an unstoppable increase of energy” and added that “more carbon dioxide will inevitably be increased, thus warming our planet even more.”

Hugo’s views are subject to change:

President Hugo Chavez said China is set to rival the United States as Venezuela’s top oil buyer as he announced new plans with the Asian powerhouse to jointly ship oil, build refineries and expand crude production.

So much for his concern about “an unstoppable increase of energy”. Hugo is unlikely to change his tune on psychotic nation-wrecker Robert Mugabe, however: “He continues, alongside his people, to confront the pretensions of new imperialists.”
