I would like to pass a variable into call-template but haven't had any luck.

No this isn't possible as the name attribute must contain a qname, which means it must be known at compile time... the usual way is:

 <xsl:when test="$this.warning = 'red'">
   <xsl:call-template name="red"/>
 <xsl:when test="$this.warning = 'green'>
   <xsl:call-template name="green"/>

etc... although it's highly likely you can achieve what you are trying
to do another way, maybe post some examples showing your requirements
and see if there's a better solution...
