Coal from Newcastle ... Hot air from China?

A snippet from Question Period:

    Question - (Bob Mills, Conservative): Kyoto will be in force on Wednesday. The government has no action plan. Why will the Minister not release the plan for hot air credits by Wednesday?

    Response - (Byron Wilfert, Liberal, Parliamentary Secretary): The Minister made it clear he won't buy hot air from Russia or from the member.

Hot air from Russia? Makes me yearn for the days of Andropov, Chernenko and old-school Pravda.
