Multi-Billion Dollar Boondoggle

“Queen’s Park is betting heavily that conservation programs will provide an effective and low-cost means of managing power needs in the coming decades,” they write. “Unfortunately, Ontario energy plans rely on unsubstantiated and overly-optimistic claims. We closely examine(d) the analyses behind the province’s ‘Conservation First’ plans, and find either an absence of credible data, or overly-optimistic numbers based on methodologies known to be unreliable.”, Toronto Sun, Lorrie Goldstein column.

The authors of this observation are Tom Adams and Ross McKitrick, in their report, “Demand Side Mismanagement: How Conservation Became Waste”, wherein they also say the Government’s official propaganda about spending billions to save billions more, when challenged, met with this answer: “The government replied “external financial audits were not performed on these programs,” and the rest of the information given was too vague to assess the government’s claims.”

Industrial Wynne Turbines are a wonder to behold, a boon to the province and a comfort to consumers.  The wasted billions will go down in history as a testament to the Wynne-lose Government’s “competence.”


One of the main, if not the defining one, reasons for Green Energy is the Climate Scam (based on normal changing weather patterns as interpreted by all the (rich) Chicken Littles of the World). As a result, Ontario suffers terrible economic, social and medical problems because of Green Energy and we all suffer under this heavy load of Horse Manure (Goldstein, Toronto Sun). A heavy load dumped by Canada’s new Boy King and the Wicked Witch of the East, his fairy godmother:
Wind and solar power are simply not ready to replace the use of coal, oil and natural gas to produce energy. [and hydro & nuclear]
They aren’t reliable or efficient enough to deliver the power required to fuel modern industrialized countries like our own, or developing nations that want to become part of the first world, like China and India.
[and let us not forget the Towers of Power require diesel engines to run}

But we know this already, those of us who rail and demonstrate against the Whirligigs of the McWynne Mandate. It bears repeating, over and over again. And there was a similar scare in 1898:
…the Chicken Littles at the Paris conference should remind us of another gathering of similar worthies at the world’s first urban planning conference held in New York in 1898.
Back then, the delegates weren’t obsessed with fossil fuels but with horse manure. Literally.
In New York in 1898, 200,000 working horses each produced an average of 24 pounds of horse manure daily, meaning almost five million pounds of manure were being dumped on city streets every 24 hours.

The stuff was piled 60 ft high in city streets, and then came the electric street car and the gasoline engine to save the day (and eliminate the health problems posed by that much horse do-do). Science (not the bogus consensus “Science” of today’s climate crap), it is hoped, will save us from the Manure excreted at the Paris Conference and the regular dumps made by the UN. And let us not forget the BS and horse manure that passes for government in Ontario…

Flogging a Dead Government

Lorrie Goldstein, in Twenty Lies (OWR) the Liberals told you (London Free Press) enumerates 20 of the many lies and prevarications spewed by the McGuinty-Wynne government of Ontario. Ten would have been enough, but 20 or more are needed to keep flogging an almost-dead government. Politics, at the best of times, is a tricky business, but in Ontario it’s disgusting and dirty.

Here are the most egregious of the lies from our perspective (apart from the fact that the term, “Green Energy” itself is a huge whopper):
13. “We will shut down Ontario’s coal-burning plants by 2007”: The Liberals still haven’t closed them, now promising to do so in 2014.

14. “We will bring clean, renewable energy to Ontario”: Under the Liberals, wind and solar power are producing minuscule amounts of unneeded, unreliable, inefficient and expensive electricity, which has to be backed up by fossil fuels. This will, according to the Auditor General, cost Ontarians billions of dollars extra on their hydro bills, for decades to come.

15. “We will bring stability to Ontario’s electricity market”: See above.

16. “We will respect the views of rural constituents by giving their MPPs free votes”: If that was true, Liberal MPPs wouldn’t be responding to furious complaints from their constituents about having industrial wind turbines rammed down their throats with form letters.

17. “We will ensure that all developers play by the rules”: Unless they’re wind developers, where the Liberals took away the rights of local citizens to oppose wind projects.

Number 17, in particular, rankles…
