Who elected these crayons?

Kentville, N.S., first town in Atlantic Canada to ban vehicle idling

Dude! This is Canada...we need to warm up the car or freeze our asses off. Can you fuck off already about the carbon emissions of everything?

Did you know that humans account for only 3.5% of the planets carbon emissions? Most emissions are from rotting animals and vegetation, volcanoes and forest fires.

96.5% of all carbon dioxide emissions are from natural sources, mankind is responsible for only 3.5%, with 0.6% coming from fuel to move vehicles, and about 1% from fuel to heat buildings. Yet vehicle fuel (petrol) is taxed at 300% while fuel to heat buildings is taxed at 5% even though buildings emit nearly twice as much carbon dioxide!

Now there are plenty of studies that refute these and plenty that support it. And which study is crammed down your throat depends on who is in office or trying to get into office. Who really knows then?

In the past carbon levels in the atmosphere have been 18 times higher...and that was long before cars were even invented.

Know this. Carbon in the atmosphere does not change the temperature of the planet. The sun does. So, unless you are planning to fly up and put a filter on that sucker...shut the fuck up, I am warming this car up before I go anywhere.

I wonder what they'd say if you ran for PM? Maybe you'd make your own party "the common sense party" and told it how it is.

Who knows, you might even get a vote or two...

You've got my vote!

Can't wait to see them try to enforce this one!

"Drivers are also allowed to idle their vehicles to provide power or heat for defogging or de-icing a windshield when no reasonable alternative is available." Um - define reasonable alternative? Is there a reasonable alternative? 'cause we can't all afford to build garages.

Ever been in Kentville in the winter? It's damn fucking cold and those winds are bitter. Geez officer, I was just defrosting the windshield and rear window. :)
