Your Tax Dollars at Work

September 10, 2007

sygration-ontario-generator-report_1189453848609.png

Sept.10th output from the wind farms in Ontario. We have almost 400 MW of installed capacity in Ont. The govt. and the media keep telling you about all the homes wind will power. They are lying to you.

The graph starts at 1am. 10% production would be about 40MW, not much to brag about but today they are not even close to 10%. In fact at 10 and 11am they produced nothing.

Close the nukes and close the coal plants and invest in candles. Buy lots before the price goes up.

If you still think wind power works maybe you could explain it to the rest of us.

While you worry about Global Warming the “BIG BOYS” are sitting in their air conditioned offices drinking very good scotch and probably enjoying a nice fat Cuban cigar laughing at YOU, wondering just how stupid the average person is.

Well, are you as stupid as they think you are?

Dalton McGuinty Wants to Paint it Red

September 8, 2007

Paint it Red

Please check out the Liberal web site and see if you can find any reference to wind energy. I can’t.

Maybe they don’t mention it so no one will ask them any questions.

Even Dwight Duncan the Energy Minster who is going to devastate his own riding with wind farms doesn’t mention them.

I see they are going to name a school after David Suzuki. David is a Sheep Herder. If you are a SHEEP follow David and enroll your child in SHEEP SCHOOL. Sheep will save the world lol

Be sure not to disagree with David, he gets upset.
Even David doesn’t mention wind farms much anymore. He likes light bulbs better. Not many hard questions about light bulbs.

To the Liberal Party and David Suzuki

This post is my lame attempt at humor.

I really do believe everything the Liberal Party-David Suzuki and Al Gore want me to believe and I think we should all be painted RED.

Wind Energy can Raise Emission Levels

September 6, 2007

It looks like the World energy Council knows what we already know. How come the govt. seems to be in the dark

*_Technical and Environmental Considerations_*
The bulk of electric power cannot currently be stored in an economically feasible way. It has to be generated at the same time it is used, and electricity grids require power to be supplied
at the rated frequency and voltage, free from harmonics, voltage surges and interruptions. A modern industrialized society depends heavily on stable and high quality power supplies to
run industrial processes and information technology. There are, therefore, a number of operational aspects which have to be taken into account when specific energy targets are considered. For the deployment of renewables on a large scale, these include the intermittent nature of leading sources, the related problems of full integration with grids, low capacity factors and the need for back-up power.
*When renewable energy targets are aimed at the reduction of GHG emissions*, broad technical issues should be taken into consideration. For example, emissions per kilowatt-hour from
conventional power stations are reduced by maximizing their base-load operation; however, integration of some renewable generating capacities into the grid can increase frequency
fluctuations, thus raising the overall emissions levels. Another issue, which in many cases is not fully taken into account, is back-up capacity to provide electricity at short notice, which
most often relies on diesel or coal-fired generating units.

GLOBAL WARMING??

September 6, 2007

Category: News and Politics

NASA recently revised their list of the ten hottest years on record. The unrevised list was cited by Al Gore in his film “An Inconvienent Truth,” where he assured us that the ten hottest years on Earth have all occured since 1995. The new, CORRECT list released by NASA (which is where all official whether data comes from) is as follows:

Ten Hottest Years on Earth (starting with the hottest):

1. 1934

2. 1998

3. 1921

4. 2006

5. 1931

6. 1999

7. 1953

8. 1990

9. 1938

10. 1939

Also, NASA also announced that the Earth’s average tempurture has DROPPED by 0.15 degrees celsus. That’s right people, the globe has been cooling for the last 7 years. That is if you believe NASA.

Oh, and about the Polar Ice Caps that have been melting for the last 10 years…recent data reveals that the ice caps have actually THICKENED by a minimal amount over the last decade. It’s funny how that story didn’t make it onto the national news.

And just so everyone who wasn’t alive back then is informed, in the 1970’s there was widespread panic throughout the world because “scientific evidence” suggested the Earth was about to enter another Ice Age. Seriously, ask your parents.

ACW Council waits for wind word from ministry-Update

September 6, 2007

From the editor:

We need more men and women with the backbone and conviction of Councilor
Barry Millian

 

I got involved with the wind farm issue in Oct. 2006. The Kingsbridge l wind farm started operation in the spring of that year in the Twp. of Ashfield-Colborne-Wawanosh. I had no intention of getting involved. I did like a lot of others, I drove by the wind farm in Oct. and my first reaction was that it didn’t directly affect me so don’t worry about it. What made me stop at several farms to see how the people were dealing with the wind farm, I’m not entirely sure. What I found was good honest people, that have been lied to and have had both their lives and property values ruined.

Epcor who built the Kingsbridge l wanted to build Kingsbridge ll even though there were many problems with No. l. The council wanted to give the go ahead with no regard for the people who were already experiencing problems.

I and several others trying to find the truth about wind farms were told by frustrated residents from ACW to contact Councilor Barry Millian. We were told that he was the only one who seemed interested in making sure the residents were protected from adverse effects that might be caused by putting the turbines too close to homes.

We sent Mr. Millian volumes of information on the subject of which he studied. The G.P. van den Berg: “Effects of the wind profile at night is one paper he paid close attention too and it showed why the people living near the wind farm were having problems sleeping at night.

Councilor Millian who under intense pressure to allow Kingsbridge ll to proceed, stood his ground and convinced the council to wait until they got an answer from the ministry with regards to the G.P. van den Berg Report.

They were promised an answer by the end of Feb. 2007. They still do not have an answer to date. It is now promised sometime in Oct., after the Provincial election.

If the govt. acknowledges the G.P. van den Berg Report they will not be able to put the turbines as close to homes as they are.

It appears the govt. is sitting on the report trying to put through as many wind farms as they can before they get caught.

The OMB hearings are a farce when the govt. is withholding information that would force the turbines to be much further from homes.

Was the Enbridge 110 turbine wind farm near Kincardine passed because information was withheld by the govt.?

I asked Marie LeGrow, senior project coordinator for the MOE, how they could go ahead with the OMB hearing for the Enbridge wind farm when they hadn’t completed the study on the G.P. van den Berg Report. I was told that because the Enbridge wind farm was already in process, the report regardless of the outcome, would not affect the Enbridge project

Below is the story from The Goderich Signal-Star

Ashfield-Colborne-Wawanosh Twp. council will not pass its new comprehensive zoning bylaw until the Ministry of Environment responds to the township’s concerns about wind turbines.

At the Aug. 21 meeting, council was to set a date to review comments and changes to the comprehensive zoning bylaw with the planning department. However, Counc. Barry Millian said council should not rush passing the bylaw until the township gets answers back from the ministry following their meeting on July 30 at the Huron County council chambers.

“The minister said she will get back to us in October and we’ve waited this long, why not wait another month?” asked Millian.

Township resident Harry Kerr said the wind turbines neighbouring his property are more than 800 metres away but “damn noisy”.

“The 400 metre setback is not enough,” said Kerr.

Millian urged all council members to study the reports on the wind turbines.

“Nobody is going to disagree with the Ontario government saying that there is a need for renewable energy but we don’t know anything about it and the government just wants us to do it,” said Millian. “We can’t talk to anyone in Ontario about this because it’s new and no one knows anything about it and I challenge anyone in this room to argue with me about this.”

Council agreed to wait for the minister’s response.

Damn That Global Warming!

September 4, 2007

Published: 29th August 2007 12:44The lowest August temperatures for more than sixty years have been recorded in southern Sweden, as August comes to a chilly conclusion across the country.

Tuesday night was unusually cold, with temperatures falling below zero in an area stretching from the far north of the country down as far south as Götaland, the southernmost quarter of Sweden.
At Ronneby Airport in Blekinge, southern Sweden, the lowest August temperature was recorded since measurements began there in 1945. Early on Wednesday morning the thermometer there was showing 0.7 degrees celsius.

The previous August record was 1.3 degrees, which was measured in Ronneby in 1978, according to the SMHI weather service.
Frost is expected in many parts of the country on Wednesday night. The mean daytime temperature is expected to be below normal in the whole country, with temperatures in Norrland forecast to be significantly below average for the time of year

Wind Power is an Illusion

September 2, 2007

From the Editor

The Govt. is just as bad as the wind industry. They know wind power is an illusion. The illusion is going to cost the Ontario taxpayer big time. Make sure no one gets a majority on Oct. the 1oth. A majority govt. is nothing more than a four year dictatorship of which you can’t do anything about.

LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF ONTARIO

Monday 10 April 2006

Mr. Garfield Dunlop (Simcoe North)

My concern is that we’re creating this illusion out there that we’re doing all these wonderful things in power.

One of the things that really was amazing is that the government is counting on the total capacity of the wind power generation as fact. This all ties in to our need for power, so we don’t have another blackout, another natural disaster. To date: Melancthon Grey wind project, which is 67.5; the Kingsbridge wind project, 39.6 megawatts; Erie Shore’s wind farm, 99 megawatts; the Prince wind farm, 99 megawatts; and the Blue Highlands wind farm, 49.5. That’s a total of 354.6 megawatts. The minister keeps saying that’s how many megawatts she has coming on-stream.1730

The reality is that in this book put out by the Independent Electricity System Operator — which I think is a government body, part of the old Ontario Hydro — it says, under an asterisk at the bottom, “For capacity planning purposes, wind generation has a dependable capacity contribution of 10% of the listed figures.” So of the 354.6 megawatts that Minister Cansfield talked about today, according to our own Independent Electricity System Operator, we really only have 35 megawatts, if you consider 10%.
