No matter where you go on the planet, there is Air pollution, it affects all of us. The more CO2 we continue to add into the atmosphere, the warmer the planet.

Warmer air not only melts our last source for fresh water, but also warms the deeper Oceans and this drives current streams to move faster. This is also the reason behind the increase in earthquakes the World has seen the past few years.

One can only imagine what lays before us - as we are just now dealing with the current amount of co2 is from the past 100 years. In the 1950's Governments (U.S) knew about CO2 and it's dangers to warm the planet, but we didn't do anything about it then and we seemingly are not doing very much about it now.

Currently Prime Minister Stephen Harper has porouged Parliament as if he can stop the function of Canadian government when he wants to. He isn't listening to the people, and that is in fact his job.

What he is doing is making sure there are new Sea Ports like Prince Ruppert, and that older ports like Churchill are enhanced, while at the same time making more Transit Corridors to join the three Coasts of Canada to the Inland Port corridor that dominates the centre of the United States.

This is increasing Trade between China and the U.S. while using Canada as a route to travel through. How is this plan going to decrease CO2?

His focus on the Arctic Ice melting is one of advantage.

He is putting old business cronies into the Senate to help with the financing of Ports like Port Churchill,
Crumbling and twisting tracks previously owned by VIA but now privately owned by OmniTRAX are being improved with tax dollars, so that Winnipeg can become one of the major Inland Ports to the United States.

These are Canadian tax dollars at work for the benefit of the few, while continuing to poison all of us with the fumes that come from Oil.

My question is – why is this man running Canada? Who gave him the right to continue to pollute the rest of the World?

The papers and other main stream press say less about these dealings than Harpers own web page. That was another part of Ingrams talk, that journalists are no longer being the watch dog for the Government.

Disgusting is not a strong enough word. Stupid is not a strong enough word.
