“Every night, columns of hulking blue and red freight trucks invade China’s major cities with a reverberating roar of engines and dark clouds of diesel exhaust so thick it dims headlights.”

“The residents of Guangzhou often wake up to a sooty film on their city.

“By daybreak in this sprawling metropolis in southeastern China, residents near thoroughfares who leave their windows open overnight find their faces stiff with a dark layer of diesel soot.”

And: “International experts say that hundreds of millions of Chinese are exposed every day to the potentially lethal mix of soot particles and smog.”

China Says

But, the Associated Press tells us: “China insisted Friday the U.S. and other wealthy nations should bear the burden of curbing global warming, saying the problem was created by their lavish way of life. It rejected mandatory emission cuts for its own developing industries.”

Mother Nature Says  

And in Bali, where the UN is making hot air: “A 5.9-magnitude earthquake struck off Bali on Friday, where it rocked a conference centre hosting more than 10,000 delegates for a key UN climate change summit.”

Mother Nature – there just is no tellign her…

Campaigners Say 

The walkers (see picture): “Skiers, fire-eaters and an ice sculptor joined in worldwide demonstrations Saturday to draw attention to climate change and push their governments to take stronger action to fight global warming” – Skiers, fire-eaters and ice made in a freezer… AGAINST global warming!
