Letters: Stop global smarming

Automobile use is not helping the planet says letter writer

If every tree hugger in Canada would just stop using a wood burning stove and give up their motor vehicles for a bicycle a first step would be taken towards the reduction of global hypocrisy.

What the environmentalists seem to be saying is that they personally know beyond the shadow of a doubt, that our recurring glacial periods have finally ended, and that we should now be worried that the planet does not go into a spiraling escalation or overheating forcing Earth to become a “Venus” – the cause of all this being the exhaust fumes from automobiles – a riveting hypothesis.

Since these glacial periods appear to be aligned with a 23,000 year periodic swing in the Earth’s orbital orientation, do they then suggest that there was no co-relation or do they suggest that these periodic orbital changes have also ceased?

Or would they rather we not think about annoying details like these and focus more on the big picture “their big picture” – the one  with the riveting hypothesis.
