Amherst Island Will Defend Itself

The citizens of the Island will be in Toronto January 31 this year to appeal the ERT’s decision to allow a major Industrial Wynne Turbine project to continue.

Parker Gallant explains why the project could be a perfectly bad idea for Amherst:
“On its own, cancellation could save Ontario ratepayers over $500 million in future costs. Those contracts, signed years ago, either have not been built or are involved in litigation preventing them from breaking ground. Their sunk costs are small in comparison to their full costs over 20 years and canceling them outright would represent a nominal cost to ratepayers while saving, birds, bats, butterflies and endangered species from harm as well as prevent human health effects, and depreciation to property values.
Cancellation would reduce the amount of surplus energy that is exported at a cost to ratepayers or simply curtailed, but paid for by ratepayers. Savings would be in the billions.

The article goes on to discuss the history of the Island and its natural wonders. For one, it is the Owl Capital of North America; it’s the first of the 1000 Islands. Fighting to protect the Island is the Association to Protect Amherst Island along with many allies:
“Organizations as diverse as Heritage Canada The National Trust, Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte, Kingston Field Naturalists, the Dry Stone Wall Association of Ireland, BirdLife International, the Maryland Ornithological Society, the Hawk Migration Association of North America, Pennsylvania Ornithological Society, and Brereton Field Naturalists’ Club all oppose turbines on Amherst Island.”

Because of draconian laws in Ontario, The Green Energy Act, the powers of local authorities to run their own affairs in the matter were taken away, as they were in every municipality that opposes Wynne Turbines or that is unwilling to host them (this host idea was generated by Ms Wynne-lose herself which amounted to a double-cross just as she double-crossed Toronto on the issue of tolling their main highways, a corrupt attempt to buy her re-election because the GTA elects the government in Ontario.). Because of this unjust and unconstitutional law, the GEA of Ontario did not invoke the notwithstanding law in the Charter of Rights, Wolfe Island has already been destroyed

In conclusion, Parker Gallant
So, Ontario has a “robust supply” of electricity, wind turbines will harm the 34 endangered species, and we are exporting surplus generation at pennies on the dollar while curtailing wind, spilling hydro and steaming off nuclear energy. Ontario doesn’t need the intermittent power from the turbines on Amherst Island. We don’t need them in Prince Edward County either (White Pines) (or Dutton-Dunwich, or La Nation, or North Stormont). The Minister should demonstrate that he means what he said recently in North Bay: “There are some families in this province that are struggling to meet their energy bills. It’s why I’ve recognized and the premier has recognized that we need to do more …That is why we’re making sure we can find ways to reduce bills. Everything is on the table within reason.”

Granting the Appeal in favour of Amherst Island would save a Billion dollars in the bankrupt province of Ontario, but fiscal responsibility is not the Wynne-lose government’s mandate..

  1. Massachusetts Wind Turbine Sleep Deprivation Similar To Abu Ghraib

    The United States torture techniques included a sleep deprivation program that people were exposed to including types of noise. Commercial wind turbines have been known since 1987 to produce several types of noise called nuisance noise, human annoyance aka infra sound and Massachusetts state regulatory noise measured in decibels.

    (…) The neighbors describe the noise from the wind turbines as torture from lack of sleep.

    The agenda of sleep deprivation was to extract information from prisoners. The residents living around commercial wind turbines in Massachusetts for the last seven years have complained of sleep deprivation because of the noise. The residents living around the turbines have become prisoners in their own homes.

    The sleep deprivation plan placed prisoners on a program of sleep – meal management. The program allowed the individual to sleep only small blocks of time no more than four hour blocks in a twenty four hour time frame. Similarly residential home owners living near commercial wind turbines complain of waking up all during the night or unable to stay out in their yards during the daylight hours while the turbines are operating.

    Falmouth, Massachusetts is ground zero for poorly placed commercial wind turbines in the United States

    Sleep deprivation was used by the military because it makes a person more suggestible, reduces psychological resistance and it reduces the body’s capacity to resist pain.

    Sleep deprivation is a very effective torture technique and causes impaired memory and cognitive functioning, decreased short term memory, speech impairment, hallucinations, psychosis, lowered immunity, headaches, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, stress, anxiety and depression. These same symptoms are the complaints of residents living around commercial wind turbines. It is known worldwide as wind turbine syndrome.

    Massachusetts state and local officials since 2005 have known about the two types of wind turbine noise human annoyance and state regulatory noise. The state had a political agenda of 2000 megawatts of commercial wind turbine energy by the year 2020. The agenda required the placement of around 3000 wind turbines statewide. Today that wind turbine program has ground to almost a halt with less than 100 of the 3000 wind turbines needed by the year 2020. The agenda has switched to Solar.

    The failure of the state to attain 2000 megawatts of wind power by the year 2020 is in itself an admission of the catastrophic health and financial fiasco caused by an agenda gone horribly wrong.

    Today in 2017 state and local officials deny any wrong doing letting the court system make all the decisions.

    Falmouth spends up to $300,000.00 on litigation every six months to force the courts to shut down the wind turbines.

    The Town of Falmouth hid noise warning letters, emails, maps, memos and documents and failed to file special permits that would have required additional studies and notifications to neighbors that would have stopped the poor installation of wind turbines.

    Massachusetts department of health and local boards of health have sat on their hands, failing to act, afraid to disrupt the renewable energy agenda while residents for years have lost their health and property rights.

    Massachusetts has created a second class group of citizens living around wind turbines in twenty one communities

    The only recourse is the courts to protect consumers,combat fraud,corruption and protect civil rights from a commercial wind turbine agenda gone horribly wrong.

    Don’t let our politicians turn the state into another Abu Ghraib.

    — In the mid 1980s, Neil Kelley and his team thoroughly documented significant adverse health effects resulting from inaudible, very-low-frequency sound produced by a large wind turbine in Boone, N.C. This scientifically rigorous NASA and Department of Energy-sponsored study, in cooperation with MIT and four other prestigious universities, as well as the wind industry, has been conveniently dismissed as irrelevant by current wind developers, even though the study’s conclusions have never been disputed, and even though we now know that the large turbines being installed today do indeed generate clinically significant amounts of infrasound.

    — Three more recent preliminary studies (Ambrose & Rand’s Falmouth, Mass., 2011; Shomer, Rand, et. al., Shirley project, Brown County, Wisconsin, 2012; Cooper, Bridgewater, Australia, 2014 ) of projects with large modern upwind turbines have replicated and confirmed Kelley’s findings; i.e., infrasound, not audible sound, is a major contributor to the health fallout from today’s industrial wind projects.
