When a young child is told “not to touch the fire because you will burn yourself” and that child inevitably touches it, screams out loud in pain and then nurses the wound for several weeks……….do you think that child will do it again? Probably not!
What happens when a child “sees” another child hurt by fire?…………do you think they would repeat the mistake themselves…………an overwhelming number probably wouldn’t!
So why on heaven’s earth would Dalton McGuinty and his “side kick” George Smitherman buy into a scam like the Feed In Tariff Program from Germany with such enthusiasm when they heard and saw how it was destroying that country and others around it like Britain and Scotland who also adopted it?
After all, they aren’t children, they aren’t mentally challenged (although you may disagree) and certainly had options when the wheels started to come off the Green Energy Scam in Ontario when thousands of useless giant turbines are being planted and do nothing more than drive people into energy poverty trying to keep the investors pockets lined with OUR green backs!
There is only one single explanation for this action and that is an “intentional and direct action to bankrupt Ontario in return for the tax dollars people are forced to hand over to their coffers at Queen’s Park”!
It’s called GREED!
And the SCAM is alive and well with Kathleen Wynne’s appointment for McGuinty’s retreat!
European Institute For Climate And Energy Warns Germany’s Feed-In Act “Will Lead Country To Economic Ruin”

Countries considering implementing green energy feed-in schemes may want to look at what is going on in Germany.

Few countries have moved as aggressively as Germany in promoting renewable energy. Some tout the German system as a model for the rest of the world.
But in an interview with DIE FREIE WELT, Michael Limburg, Vice President of the European Institute for Climate and Energy (EIKE), called Germany’s EEG renewable energy feed-in act “ideological and expensive” and warns it threatens to economically ruin the country.
My time is a little short today, and so I’ll present only the main points of the interview.
Limburg on why people are becoming increasingly agitated by Germany’s EEG feed-in act
It’s obviously the new, real experience that the falsely named ‘renewable energies’ are nothing what the politicians promised they would be. Not only are they not free, but they really do burn a hole in your pocket. [...] Especially low income households feel the pain. [...] The reality is that it’s the state that initiated this expensive mess, and it is now asking the consumer to cough it up. Up to the end of last year, it had already cost € 98 billion euros ($130 billion). That’s 10 times the amount the Federal Department of Transportation is allowed to spend this year for investment and repairs for our roads and highways.”
Limburg’s criticism on photovoltaics and wind turbines
Of all the alternative energies available, these two are the most expensive, the most volatile, and thus the most useless. In Germany we get as much sun as Alaska does. That’s why PV systems here operate at only 8% of their rated capacity in the middle of the year.
