Editor, The Times

Re:  “Who Decides for the Human Race?”, Sept. 3 issue.

I have to take this opportunity to congratulate our editor for finally breaking down and adding some humor to his editorial instead of the gloom and doom in past articles. I’m sorry he thinks I’m so predictable that I would jump all over his topics of global warming and the roundabout. However, my letters are not of anger, but reality. I never get mad; I get even.

I see in your article that you have a new catch phrase, “geo-engineering”! Holy crap! What is this world coming to? Injecting sulphur-based aerosols into the atmosphere? Constructing mirrors or other structures in space? Fertilizing the oceans? Then you go on to say, “However, they would need further research,” I imagine that a government grant for about two gazillion dollars for each project would be appropriate, considering that it’s going to clean up the environment!

On Sept. 4, Clearwater was blessed with one of the best shows of the northern lights that I have seen in a very long time. Anyone who reads this and saw it will know what I mean. Then this thought occurred to me:  I’ll form a non-profit organization and apply for a two gazillion-dollar grant to harness the energy from the northern lights! Say goodbye to BC Hydro and still have lots of power for Terry Lake’s electric car!

By the way, Keith, the roundabout will actually increase global warming because vehicles will be idling longer while wreckers pull Smart cars from between the dual wheels of transport trucks!
