Canada gets less than 11% of its electricity from coal and Ontario 0%.
The problem is the McGuinty and Wynne governments claimed they eliminated coal use by investing billions of public dollars in wind and solar power.
That claim is nonsense.
In 2003, coal provided 25% of Ontario’s electricity. Today, wind and solar power, mostly wind, provide 4% of Ontario’s electricity.
Obviously, it is mathematically impossible to replace 25% of electricity power generation with 4% of electricity power generation. Goldstein Toronto Sun
The replaced coal power with nuclear and natural gas:
The lesson, simply put, is that there are smart ways to reduce greenhouse gases and stupid ways to do it.
The stupid way, of course, is to spend billions on Industrial Wind Turbines and solar panels, and then to export the output at less than the cost of production.

In an Australian interview in the fall of 2014, Lord Monkton stated that Sir David King, the Climate Change ambassador to the United Kingdom, was asked by the Environmental Committee of the House of Commons (Britain) if all the nations of the world were ready to sign the Global Warming Treaty in Paris (Fall of 2015). To which he replied that there were two standouts — one being Stephen Harper in Canada — but not to worry because Canada was having an election in 2015 and that the U.N. will make sure that the Harper government is removed.
The wind blows at a loss!
“The price is increasing by approximately $4.42 per month on the ‘Electricity’ line, and about 3.4% on the total bill, for a household that consumes 800 kWh per month.” And Parker Gallant says the statement by the OEB is meaningless [WCO: Energy Board hides the real reason for increases].
If you look at the actual price rise from November 1, 2014 to November 1, 2015 the increase is considerably more than 3.4%. In fact the increase on the charge for the “Electricity” line is 12.8% excluding the HST applied on that increase. The charge for electricity for the “household that consumes 800 kWh per month” increased by a total of $130.31, not the $53.04 that the OEB infers. Even using the “average” RPP (regulated price plan) posted on their site and comparing November 1, 2014 to November 1, 2015, you get an increase of 12.5%!
How? The costs of renewable energy are 1/3 of the increase! That includes the losses for power exported at less than the cost of production.
You need only look back to October 13, 2015, a windy day when the industrial wind turbines were cranking out unneeded power. The reported 3,450 MW of wind capacity was spitting out an average of 2,200 MW per hour, at a cost for the whole day of $6.5 million. Ontario was busy exporting 2,228 MW every hour that day, being paid 1.8 cents a kWh and at the same time, paying wind developers an average of 12.3 cents per kWh—we lost more than $5.5 million. That’s just one day!
Tell your friends and neighbours, and your MPP.
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).
Make them pay for your vote!
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.”

“Nothing short of insanity”
Watch video Senator calls for inquiry
SENATOR BOB RUNCIMAN WANTS TO SEE A JUDICIAL ENQUIRY INTO ONTARIO’S GREEN ENERGY ACT.
“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.”

“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.
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.

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’s the optimum perfect sea level?
What is the maximum amount of volcanic ash and soot that can be shot into the atmosphere before it starts to affect the climate?
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.)
