Breathe Easier (or how I learned to stop worrying and love greenhouse gasses)

So, I am reading this, and it occurs to me that while the great unwashed have been brainwashed into thinking that Kyoto = pollution, the reality is that we could correct the problem of pollution a great deal more quickly and efficiently than we can deal with global warming.

Smog is not caused by greenhouse gasses. Pollution that affects asthma sufferers and the elderly are not caused by greenhouse gasses.

I would love for someone, preferrably a Tory, to stand up and say "F*#$ Greenhouse Gasses", let's deal with the real issue, smog, VOC (volatile organic compounds) and particulate pollution with ready made, off the shelf, Canadian-made technology.


(FULL DISCLOSURE: In a past life, I designed, manufactured and installed air pollution control systems for industrial applications. The technology exists to eliminate these pollutants NOW!!!!)

Labels: , ,

The Conservatives originally started out with the emphasis on cleaning up the smog until they got stampeded into this global warming nonsense. Now, it seems, they have all but abandoned this approach and are charging headlong down the same path as the Liberals. Not only will they let you die in the dirty air, but they'll make sure you do while you are sitting in the cold and the dark with an empty stomach because the cost of the little things like electricity, heating fuel, and food will be taxed beyond the reach of all but the wealthiest. Oh, and you'll also do that while waiting for your EI or welfare cheque since there won't be any jobs left in the country.
