“Halting wind development would cut energy bills for Ontarians”….says Federal Government!!!!

Posted: August 17, 2012 in Uncategorized

Finally some sanity in an otherwise “insane Green World of Dreams/Nightmares” being forced down consumers throats by a Provincial Government “gone completely off the rails” with unreasonable and financially devastating Wind and Solar development that makes no sense to anyone but private investors and greedy politicos.

What the hell is wrong with our Provincial Government that states publicly how great and inexpensive green power is while bankrupting basically anyone who uses it?

Industries folding, health problems being ignored, home values debased to the point nobody wants to buy them, except the wind developers, not to mention the massive killing off of wildlife and rendering arable lands not fit for habituation let alone farming!

This nightmare has to end and end now!

The following is a release from the Library of Parliament in Ottawa confirming this bizarre and destructive Green Agenda so entrenched within the McGuinty short sighted vision of Ontario!

A word of caution here: Pierre Poilievre was and still could be  an “active” participant within the United Nations and could possibly be a supporter of their Agenda 21, which of course is anything but “good for civilized and industrialized societies”! See: Model UN victorious

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Marlborough Moratorium Makes Cents

North Gower, ON — Nepean-Carleton MP, Pierre Poilievre, released information from the Library of Parliament confirming that a moratorium on the Marlborough Wind Turbine Project could result in an annual savings of up to $4.8 million on Ontarians’ energy bills. Due to its unreliability and set-up costs, wind-generated power in Ontario is far more expensive than alternatives like conservation efforts or refurbished nuclear plants. Poilievre has been calling for a moratorium, while Health Canada (a federal department) conducts a study into the safety of wind turbine noise.

The Marlborough project proposed for the outskirts of North Gower is expected to produce approximately 60 million kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity annually, at a cost of 13.5 cents/kWh, a price the Ontario government has guaranteed for 20 years.  In comparison, the Ontario Power Authority purchases electricity generated from coal, natural gas and nuclear plants at a cost of 6 to 9 cents/kWh.  A moratorium on this industrial wind turbine project would allow the Power Authority to purchase the same electricity at roughly half the price from these cheaper energy sources while Health Canada conducts its study.

“The planned industrial turbines near North Gower should be put on hold until the results of Health Canada’s federal study are published,” said Poilievre. “Not only would this ensure the safety of these residents, but it would save money for the power system and its consumers.”

In 2011, wind-generated energy accounted for an average of 2.7% of the total power grid in Ontario, costing taxpayers $519.5 million. The same amount of energy from natural gas generation plants would have cost $96.2 million less.

    You might want to check into Pierre Poilievre’s background some. http://www.thegauntlet.ca/story/model-un-victorious. Politics is bullshit and doublespeak…all parties moving us to the same end.

    At a minimum, this is what needs to be said.
