In Ontario, Wind Energy is DIRTY

Dirty Wind blogged by OWR from letter by S. Giorno to the Sarnia Observer.

Only in Ontario!!!
With every megawatt-hour of wind-produced electricity accepted into the Ontario grid, the province is in fact substituting electricity that produces an average of 40 kg CO2 per megawatt-hour (from gas turbines operating ONLY during peak demand) with electricity that produces an average of 200 kg CO2 per megawatt-hour (from gas turbines that MUST operate whenever the wind stops blowing).

MP, Tilson to Health Canada: Canadians at the Mercy of Big Wind.
The MP for Dufferin-Caledon, David Tilson, has written a letter to Health Canada expressing concern about the number of complaints about wind turbine noise.

Health Canada should be doing more, he said in the letter dated September 10, and should “be more forthcoming when it comes to ensuring the health and well-being of Canadians.”

“My constitutents, along with many other Canadians,” he wrote, “are at the mercy of big business in the wind industry, and their powerful lobby, the Canadian Wind Energy Association.”

Senator Calls For Judicial Enquiry

Posted by WCO (Wind Concerns Ontario)

CKWS TV September 3, 2015

“Nothing short of insanity”

Watch video Senator calls for inquiry


Whether you like them or not, wind and solar panel farms are going up in an area near you. The Liberal government is approving wind and solar farms across the province, most recently here on Amherst Island.

“They continue to approve these wind turbines, they’re doing it in Prince Edward County, they’re doing it on Amherst Island, they’re doing it in Addington Highlands, they’re doing it all across South Western Ontario, it’s not providing a reliable source of electricity and an affordable source.”

The Green Energy Act and the province’s Hydro policy were slammed during a public meeting hosted by MPP Todd Smith in Prince Edward County. About fifty concerned residents from across the region attended the roundtable discussion where Senator Bob Runicman talked about the steps anti-wind turbine groups could take to quash the act …like challenging it in a court of law and calling for a judicial inquiry.

“I think we’ve got to find ways to raise funds to be able to do this and at the very least try and delay it until the next provincial election and hopefully we’ll have a change in government with a different approach.”

Parker Gallant, a writer with the Financial Post and Green Energy Act critic says electricity costs are forcing people to make a tough choice, heat or eat.

“We have just a mess in our electricity sector it’s probably the most complex in all of North America.”

“It’s nothing short of insanity but they continue down that path and we have to fight them with every possible tool available.”

Smith says the green energy act is to blame.

“It’s taken Ontario from having the lowest cost electricity to the highest in North America in just a couple of years.”

“And it’s not only affecting homeowners. Goodyear decided not to expand it’s Napanee location. One of the reasons…rising electricity costs.  A recent report from the Ontario Chamber of Commerce suggests that one in 20 Ontario Businesses will close their doors in the next five years due to rising electricity prices.”

Earth Does Not Get The Message

“Countries and companies around the globe have spent trillions of dollars to stop the Earth from warming and the Earth did not get the message, it responded by cooling. Not to worry, environmentalists who were blatantly wrong and tried to say that cooling is part of global warming, changed their golden goose agenda to climate change. Even though climate change is real, it is called seasons, critics of the climate change industry, of climatism, have been marginalized under the rubric of global warming heretic deniers.”
Climate Change Industry Depletes the Energy Market (Quixotes Last Stand) a report By Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh August 12, 2015

“World leaders, politicians, corporations, universities, and NGOs have been captivated by the climate change industry even though the theory of global warming has failed miserably and all the climate models were proven wrong. They declared war on fossil fuels and waged it with a vengeance at the expense of taxpayers and electricity users.”

“Dr. Steve Goreham, Executive Director of the Climate Science Coalition of America, and author of Mad, Mad, Mad World of Climatism, described the collateral damage from the war on hydrocarbons using Europe as an example of an “energy disaster unfolding.” He said, “there are 487 national climate change laws in 66 nations” and they are hurting the economies of those respective countries.”
Even though IPCC said that “burning biomass is carbon neutral,” the reality is that biofuels release as much or more carbon dioxide than coal does. And the trading of carbon on the carbon markets is failing. People can pay all the carbon footprint taxes in the world and it will not make a bit of difference in the actual CO2 in the atmosphere. It will just make the traders and the companies richer.”

“Dr. Goreham also mentioned that some countries imported wood from Alabama to burn as electricity generator instead of dirty coal. The Green Revolution has been so expensive for Europeans that subsidies were dropping in every area, followed by layoffs in the renewable industry. The wind industry in the U.S. gets 2.3 cents per kWh in tax credit in order to compete.”…

“Dr. Fred Singer, physicist and emeritus professor of environmental science at the University of Virginia, reminded us that the climate change industry does not take into account the CO2 emissions from operation and maintenance of renewables such as how often these devices must be replaced (solar panels, wind turbines, parts, lubricants), and the transmission costs. Wind and solar power does emit CO2 in the construction process, during the mining of the metals used, lubricants, etc.” 

Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh concludes:
“Honest scientists say that we have enough fossil fuels reserves for centuries of use. In the world’s economy renewables should compete without subsidies, we should worry about the Smart Grid’s vulnerability from hackers, solar flares, and EMPs, we should conserve energy wisely, protect nature sensibly, and let the carbon credits scheme go into the trash bin of expensive hustles.”
the enemy of man is man (the full article)

Thus the CLIMATISM that is provoking a coming cataclysm in contemporary history, all in the name of subsidies, carbon credits, contracts, wind and solar developers, naive or stupid politicians, elections and re-elections, political legacies, human greed, and global wishful thinking in the name of money.

Wainfleet Trail

Niagara Pennisula Conservation Authority has performed it usual “sell-out” to Wind Developers: NPCA sells out, again, reported by Welland Tribune and blogged by OWR:
Despite concerns from Wainfleet leaders, Niagara Region Wind Corp. has been given the green light to use the Gord Harry Trail. The Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority board approved an agreement with the company Wednesday night, that will allow 635 metres of the 13-kilometre trail to be used to bury wind turbine conduits.

The bribe paid for the use of the Trail is $100,000, plus a @200,000 payment for 20 years.

Given the NPCA’s conservation mandate, Wainfleet Mayor April Jeffs said she feels the decision is steeped in hypocrisy.

“People look at us to be stewards of land in general, especially our own land,” said Jeffs, who represents the township on the conservation authority’s board.

“We tell people they can’t do things on their property, but then with ours say, ‘Sure, come on in — and bring your trucks.’ ”

The board argued, she said, that the trail is a recreation area, not a conservation area. “But perception is reality.”

Read the article by Maryanne Firth, here, where she reports, A proposed alternative would have seen the conduits buried in a farmfield parallel to the trail. The  NPCA’s rationalization is revolting.

Quiz for GW fans and fanatics (courtesy of Donna Quixote):
So to all of those devout members of the Church of Global Warming, answer these questions for me.
What is the optimum temperature, for all species, including man, to thrive?
What is the maximum population of humans that is acceptable?
What is the perfect combination of GHGs in the atmosphere??

What is the optimum amount of annual rainfall, globally? For extra bonus points,
break it down by continent.
What is the perfect size for both polar ice caps?
What’s the optimum size for a glacier….at what point should it stop growing or shrinking?

What is the maximum number of severe storms — hurricanes, typhoons, tornadoes — that you feel are acceptable? What’s the highest category allowed?
Tell all of us deniers what the absolute perfect climate is, so that no species ever goes extinct again, so that all flora and fauna flourish, so that we can tell the earth to stop changing her climate….something she’s done naturally for billions of years…..and stay at exactly the levels that you have decreed to be perfect for all life on planet earth.)

Ontario, The Have Nuts For Brains Province

The reigning government of Ontario loves to give away its wealth and it assets.

It sells off scam-produced Greed Energy at a loss, and it’s preparing to give away its power company, Hydro One. It gives away its tax revenues willy-nilly in pursuit of bad policy, like subsides for Greed Energy to feed greedy developers who are the friends of the ruling Party.

To prove it has nuts for brains, and nuts in charge of the brain trust, it also gives away the same revenues in the in order to preserve its penchant for bad policy, such as the huge power rate increases that have closed down a lot of industrial Ontario.

Once more into the breach, money thrown away to feed off-shore economies at the expense of the local! This time $40 million to a Chilean company in preference to an Ontario company in the same business, and, just as bad, it’s not even going to a Canadian company in another province where there is industry that does the same work.  AND, there’s a company in St. Catharines, Ontario, that can do the job, too!

When you read the governments rationalization for the decision to send its work off-shore, it does not even make sense. Maybe somebody in the Ontario government or close to it holds shares in the offshore company, probably, because there is no rhyme nor reason to this decision, except to penalize the company in Wheatley, Ontario: “…the two-year project would have provided 300-person years of employment, creating 75 direct jobs and more than 50 indirect jobs.”

Wheatley builder left high and dry after $40-million contract awarded to Chilean company, that’s the headline. No way would the Government of Chile do the same to one of its industries.  Worse, the end-product has to be delivered by water down the PACIFIC COAST, THROUGH THE STRAITS OF MAGELLAN UP THE EAST COAST, and down the St. Lawrence, through Lakes Ontario and Erie.  That’s an expensive trip!  But the GO does not save money, it wastes it, like water, obviously.

The government is in the business of killing jobs. Only in pitiful Ontario!!!

Are the Wynne-lose Liberals Destroying Evidence…

Globe and Mail, Richard Blackwell
An offshore wind farm developer that is in the midst of a lawsuit against the province of Ontario is now accusing the Liberal government of destroying documents related to its case.

Trillium spent years and millions of dollars developing plans for an offshore wind farm in Lake Ontario near Kingston, but it had the rug pulled out from under it in February, 2011, when the province said it would not consider any offshore development until more scientific studies were done. The decision came the same day Trillium was to sign a large financing deal.

However, in 2013 the Ontario Court of Appeal said the company could go ahead with one specific allegation, that the government’s decision amounted to “malfeasance in public office.”

Among Trillium’s evidence for the destruction of documents, its court filing says, is that some of the communications the company had with the government are “nowhere to be found in the [government’s] documentary productions.”

DOES ANY OF THIS really surprise you?  You can win and lose with the Ontario government in the Green Energy scam.

Quote of the Decade
“The trouble with wind farms is that they have a very large spatial footprint for a piddling little bit of electricity. You would need 800 turbines to produce the output of a coal-fired power station.”
