We Can't Go On Meeting Like This

From The Guardian, video of what a lot of Chinese are enduring these days.

We are headed for collective suicide.

I don't know that we, as a civilization, have ever dealt with conditions like this, LD. China is making efforts to deal with its pollution problems but it is anything but clear that they'll do enough in the time left. So much of their surface water is contaminated. It's estimated that up to 40% of their farmland is unusable due to arsenic and heavy metal industrial emissions.

At times that country seems like a runaway train.

That run-a-way train, is coming to Canada. Harper is giving Canada to China. Harper is planning for China, in the rich resources, in the High Arctic, as well as in the tar sands. China does not care, if China is unfit to live in. Do you think, China and Harper gives a damn about polluting Canada, with that filthy Bitumen oil.

Never will we get it through Harper's block head. The tar sands has to be shut down. Imagine that dirty Bitumen oil, used by China? That country's horrific pollution is drifting into other country's. It has even drifted over into BC. There is acid in the ocean, right up to the shores of BC.

Alberta's lakes are all contaminated by the tar sands. The huge Athabasca watershed is unfit, it's so polluted.

Brain dead idiots such as Harper, Premier Redford, Communist China and Enbridge, seem to think, they can drink oil and eat their money.

We are going to fight to keep, that dirty crap out of BC, right to the last ditch. Kinder Morgan can get the hell lost too.
