Global warming -- a made-in-China solution

Everybody wants to do something about global warming as long as it's not them that's doing it.

Ontario wants to meet its anti-global warming goals but not, it seems, at the expense of its auto industry.

After all, the Big Three can't be expected to turn on a dime and start putting out green autos. And Big Labour is all for global warming when its jobs are at stake.

If Canada was serious about the global, civilization-destroying, imminent global warming catastrophe, here's what it should do:

Require that all cars purchased and/or driven in Canada be made in China.

China is Kyoto-exempt. So it can pollute as much as it wants without having any adverse affect on the Kyoto guidelines. And, with the elimination of auto manufacturing in Ontario, Canada will be well on its way to meeting our Kyoto commitments.

Throwing thousands of Canadian auto workers out of work will also mean fewer cars on the road, fewer purchases made, fewer trucks on the road bringing those products to market; truckers out of work, a ripple-effect kickijng in -- we might be able to bring the entire economy to a grinding halt!

I can feel it getting colder already!

And that's the way the Ball bounces.

Much of the global warming argument is based on confusion.

Many individuals have confused air pollution with the warming of the climate.

The climatic warming is a result of a change in the output of our nearest star. Over the millennia there have been many cycles. At some times it has been much colder with enormous glaciers covering much of the world. It must have been wooly mammoth methane that caused the disappearance of the monster glaciers because there were very few SUV's.

At other times it has been warmer. The polar bears seem to have come through the heat wave of 1000 AD.

The industrial age has brought industrial pollution with toxic fumes and clouds of farming induced dust. We need to try to ameliorate these problems.

Sending money to China to build more coal fired electrical generating plants does not seem to be a good solution.

If carbon dioxide is such a toxic gas perhaps the proponents of the global warming hysteria should stop exhaling.
