E C A r e v i e w R e a l E s t a t e / H o m e s mail bag Failure to get response from Kneehill residents Dear Editor, First of all, I would like to extend my sincere thanks to all the nominees for Kneehill County Council. Thank you as well for the dedicated service of each council member who decided to step down at this time. On June 28, Kneehill County held a public hearing for their Municipal Development Plan (MDP). This is the most important planning document in the County. Two information sessions for comments on the draft MDP were held and I’m told a grand total of zero persons attended. A third session combined with the annual update on the County netted a few more attendees and the public hearing itself a handful of comments. Meanwhile, a questionnaire was sent out with a County newsletter to get input on the draft. This questionnaire was responded to by a grand total of 22 out of 5,000 residents … that’s correct TWENTY-TWO. Each councillor could have sat down for coffee with three residents and obtained better results. Surprisingly, Kneehill administration spent a considerable amount of time turning these 22 surveys into statistics with percentages. Really, people, is that how much we care about our county? What should we really take away from those surveys? Obviously not much! The first question should be “How can we get a better response from our residents?” The next question should be C02, not a factor in climate warming Cont’d from Pg 4 That first ice age lasted about 400,000 years. At that time there was no oxygen in the atmosphere, it was somewhere between 70 and 90 per cent C02. So C02 was not a factor in warming up the climate at that time. They have figured out that in every case when the climate warmed up, C02 emissions did not increase until after the climate had warmed up. Climate change is caused by solar activity and cycles. During the medieval warm period over a 1000 years ago, global temperatures were much warmer than they are now. During that period, the Vikings were farming and growing grain on Greenland. No one knows, but it is possible that the Arctic Ocean may have been open to the North Pole at that time. Today Greenland is solid permafrost. The warm period we are experiencing today began about the year 1750, before the industrial revelation, when man first started emitting C02 into the atmosphere from the burning of coal. In the last 100 years, the global mean temperature has only increased by about one degree which is hardly catastrophic! An excellent book I came across a few years ago was written by Bruno Wiskel. It describes, in detail, the work and research of the real scientists that determined the timing of the various ice ages that occurred. The title of the book is “The Sky is Not Falling”, Putting Climate Change on Trial. I would recommend to anyone interested in the real science of climate change, try to obtain a copy at a public library. C02 is not destroying our living conditions, in fact, it is improving the conditions for growing plants. There has already been an increase in yields of about 15 per cent by just increasing concentrations of CO2 from 280 parts-per-million (ppm) to 400 ppm. Scientists have determined that the ideal concentration for plant growth would be about 1200 ppm. My advise to everyone is to pay no attention to the climate alarmists. Climate change is and has always been natural. The sooner the media, politicians, environmentalists etc., admit that climate change is natural, the better off the world will be.

R e a l E s t a t e / H o m e s Mindful of our intensity of hate Cont’d from Pg 4 I remember Timothy McVeigh killing 168 innocent children and adults when he bombed a government building in Oklahoma City in 1995 and, in the same era, religious zealots bombing abortion clinics, killing adults to save babies. And there are many more terrorist examples prior to and post 9/11 perpetrated by whites on the left and right. Ironically, the Islamic extremists, who are fighting the infidels—democratic governments led by the United States—have much in common with white national extremists in the United States who are also fighting their democratically elected federal government. Whether it’s 20 dead six-year old students and six teachers in Sandy Hook or 59 dead music fans in Vegas, mass shootings are wrapped up in American liberty and fear of their federal government. In Canada we need to stop Americanizing ourselves with a steady diet of CNN, Fox News and The Rebel. We are better educated, more travelled and have a far superior governance and judicial system than our neighbours to the south. (P.S. don’t tell them, they think they’re the greatest!) Terrorism is simply getting wrapped up in an uncompromising ideology that leads to the justification for violence. Most important, we must always be mindful of our hate and the intensity of that hate because each one of us can be radicalized. Terrorism is not colour coded. 1-800-BIG IRON (244-4766) Needing that new home before winter? Don’t Miss our Fall Savings $ 5,000 00 Ask about our Numerous options!
