Opec agrees record oil output cut

December 17, 2008

The oil producers’ cartel Opec has agreed to make a record cut in output, slashing 2.2 million barrels per day (bpd) from its current supply.

Opec has made two other cuts since September, meaning it has cut a total of 4.2 million bpd in four months.

However falling demand amid the economic downturn has meant prices have fallen sharply from highs seen in July.

Opec said that it hoped the record cut would boost prices but that it had no formal price target.

Wind power: Another look

December 17, 2008

Editor:

The letter below, Wind power: Another Look by Dr Ruth Pugh DC reiterates what people have been saying for years.

The wind industry and govt. got the public to accept the idea of wind farms by using the brainwashing techniques of repetition and perception and they have been relentless in their efforts.

You can’t turn on a TV pick, up a paper or listen to the radio without being exposed to the propaganda machine selling ‘wind energy’.

My nephew dropped by and downloaded a racing game and sure enough, as he was racing around, there they were – wind turbines along the side of the road.

I called the office of CanWEA in Ottawa just over two years ago and told Britt (communications director) that the wind industry would be over in two years.  I couldn’t see how the perception could last any longer.

By the way Mr. Hornung (president of CanWEA) – Britt said you would call me back to discuss my concerns – I’m still waiting.

Once I discovered the depth of the deception and the political connections, I realized it would take some very dedicated people to bring the truth to the average person.

Those people are now in place and more are joining everyday, in the effort to expose the wind industry for what it is, and they are committed to their goal.

Perception is a tool used to sell product and ideas.  Perception and reality are seldom the same.

In the movie about Enron, there is a statement ” As long as the perception holds – it is the truth.” Truth finally caught up with Enron. (Enron and the Environmental Movement)

Paul Watson co-founder of Greenpeace said “It doesn’t matter what is true, it only matters what people believe is true”.

Enron collapsed and so will the wind industry, because truth will eventually win out over perception.

Enjoy the Holidays and begin the new year with a rested and renewed spirit.

Wind power: Another look

Concerning wind energy and the proposed wind farms in Oxford county, certainly health hazards to those who live near wind farms is a consideration. However, let’s look at the legitimacy and desirability of wind power as a source of energy.

At first glance wind power seems like a clean, renewable source of energy, part of the solution for global warming.

However, wind power is unpredictable. Energy from industrial wind power can not be stored. Thus, when the wind is not blowing consistently the wind turbines must be backed up by conventional power sources. The most effective backup is natural gas generators. How often does the wind not reach Base Load electricity demands? The existing wind turbines in Ontario in 2006 and 2007 reached less than 10 per cent of what the system demanded over 50 per cent of the time.

Ms. Schofield suggested looking at the successful use of wind energy in Europe. In Germany and Spain, natural gas generators are installed to offset the unpredictable output from the wind. The generators output nearly matches the wind turbines output. Protests in France, Denmark and Holland have caused stiff restrictions to be placed on further wind turbine construction. In June 2008, an independent study of the success of wind turbines in the U.K. determined that wind power was “expensive, unreliable, and not saving any natural gas.” In the U.S., Senator Alexander looked at independent studies and determined that wind power provided “puny amounts of high-cost unreliable power.” No fossil fuel facilities have been shut down or not built due to the roughly 50,000 world-wide wind turbines.

So on top of health hazards, devaluing real estate, and the cost to consumers and taxpayers to pay for government subsidies and tax breaks for these wind farms, we find out that they don’t even provide the “green” power we’d like to believe they did. Not that’s a con.

The risks of allowing these wind farms in Oxford County far outweigh any benefits.

Call for record Opec output cut

December 17, 2008

Call for record Opec output cut

Saudi oil minister Ali al-Nuaimi

The Saudi oil minister wants non-members of Opec to cut output as well

Opec leaders are gathering in Algeria under pressure from Saudi Arabia to make their biggest ever single cut in output as prices plunge.

Saudi Arabia, the world’s largest oil producer, predicts the cartel will reduce production by a 2m barrels a day at its meeting.

Saudi oil minister Ali al-Nuaimi said he expected Opec non-members to cut output by 600,000 barrels per day.

Oil giant Russia, a non-member, will be represented at the meeting.

A combined cut of 2.6m barrels per day represents 3% of the global output.

Oil prices have slumped $100 from a peak of $147 a barrel in July, as demand weakened amid the downturn.

Expectation is high that oil producers are ready for co-ordinated actions to boost crude prices.

Coolest Since 2000

December 16, 2008

Editor:
You have to laugh at the global warming movement – until you realize what they are up to.

The destruction of the industrialized world, depopulation and carbon tax for all is the goal.

Anyway this story says that natural climate is at work – but it’s masking the real threat of global warming.
Another load of bunk from the BBC/UN NWO elitists.

Winter brought unfamiliarly cold weather to large swathes of Europe

The world in 2008 has been cooler than at any time since the turn of the century, scientists say.

Cooling La Nina conditions in the Pacific brought temperatures down to levels last seen in the year 2000.

The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) notes that temperatures remained about 0.3C above the 1961-1990 average.

Computer models suggest that natural cycles may cool the Earth’s surface in the next few years, masking the warming impact of rising greenhouse gas levels.

Essex considers wind farms ban

Essex considers wind farms ban

ESSEX — The Town of Essex became the first area municipality to propose a ban Monday on wind turbine projects until all health questions raised by residents are clearly answered by provincial experts.

“We are gambling with the health, safety and quality of life of the people around us,” said Coun. Ron Rogers, who proposed the ban. “We need answers and guidance from our provincial ministries.”

The council debate on the ban is set for Feb. 23 to allow wind industry, provincial government and health experts to respond to issues such as noise, vibration, risk of structural failure, ice throw from blades, and electrical surges.

Input will also be sought from other Ontario municipalities that have banned or are about to ban the giant turbines even though provincial planning policy has encouraged wind energy development.

Rogers said he was frustrated with the divergent opinions on wind turbines, and the lack of help from the province and Essex County in sorting them out.

Among local municipalities, for example, the minimum proposed setback from turbines to homes ranges from the high of 600 metres in Amherstburg to the low of 300 metres in Lakeshore and Kingsville, Rogers noted. Essex decided to go down the middle with a minimum setback of 450 metres, he added.

Provincial experts ought to advise municipalities on safe setbacks for wind turbines so the numbers don’t vary all over Ontario, Rogers said.

The $100,000 study done by Essex County on wind energy ducked the minimum setback issue completely, Rogers said.

Council chamber was packed with residents who mostly applauded Roger’s idea. Mayor Ron McDermott had to ask some not to interrupt councilors or risk ejection.

None of the companies that have proposed wind turbine projects in the town were present.

Closest to starting construction in 2009 is a 24 turbine, $100 million project by AIM PowerGen over 1,400 acres of farmland southwest of Harrow. That project is supposed to annually generate about $300,000 in lease payments to farmers and about $81,000 in property taxes.

“I won’t support the motion before us tonight,” said Coun. Randy Voakes. “Don’t think I haven’t wrestled with it.”

In tough economic times, the town has to accept development that will bring some new jobs and revenue into the community, Voakes. “Every little bit will help families in need,” he said.

Voakes thought the health questions raised by Rogers had been answered in the last two years. “We’re the only municipality dragging our feet on this issue.”

But Rogers downplayed the job creation benefits of wind turbines as limited to construction crews and a handful of full-time maintenance workers.

McDermott objected to the government telling municipalities to accept wind energy without answering all the questions that residents are asking. “They’re making us spend our money to investigate this,” said the mayor.

“I want the province to tell me what a safe setback is,” said Deputy Mayor Richard Meloche.

Meloche added: “I probably get 20 emails a day on the horror stories people have gone through.” On the other hand, he added, wind turbine companies say complaints are rare and the risks minimal.

“I have concerns,” said Meloche – but not the expertise to make decisions.

Gore's tough message to leaders

Gore’s tough message to leaders

By Richard Black
Environment correspondent, BBC News website, Poznan

AP)

Al Gore was optimistic about some developing countries’ plans

Leaders will have to embrace tougher targets on reducing emissions if they want to prevent dangerous climate change, according to Al Gore.

Speaking here at the UN climate conference, the former US presidential candidate said the “sclerotic” politics of today had to change.

His speech was met with rapturous applause by thousands of delegates.

But environmental groups here criticised the EU’s climate and energy package, agreed earlier in Brussels.

EU leadership is widely seen as vital in clinching a global deal at the next UN conference in Copenhagen in a year’s time; and campaigners say European governments have concluded a weak agreement.

But Mr Gore, who won last year’s Nobel Peace Prize for his work on climate change, said he saw more reasons for optimism than pessimism.

“To those who say it’s too difficult to conclude a deal by Copenhagen, I say it can be done, it will be done, let’s finish this process.”

Why would anyone listen to this lying, manipulating, dishonest, mouthpiece for the UN New World Order. He and his mentor Maurice Strong along with a cabal of elitists and phony environmental groups intend to destroy our economies in order to gain complete control of the planet and everything on it.

What’s  going on in the economy is not by chance or some unforeseen accident.

Merry Christmas Poem – Time for everyone to Wake Up!

December 12, 2008

Editor:

I received the Christmas poem below via an email this morning, and it makes a legitimate point.

The boys at the UN want a ‘One World Government’ and a ‘One World Religion’ – and Christianity is not the one they want. Therefore it must be made to disappear.

Please take a moment to read about the future of religion at the ‘Green Agenda’ or watch the video on my side bar. ‘the UN and the Occult’

Most Christians have no idea what is going on, nor do they understand that their religion is being undermined via the ‘Green Movement’.

The ‘Green Movement’ after all, is not about the environment so much as it is a new religion. That new religion is Pagan-  based on the Earth Goddess Gaia.

Please understand – It’s the UN and its minions that want a “One World Religion’ – not the other religions of the world.

“Politicians of all stripes have sold their souls and they are being collected at the gates of the UN”. R J Stephens

Enjoy the poem and your Christmas!

*Twas the month before Christmas*
*When all through our land,*
*Not a Christian was praying*
*Nor taking a stand.*
*It might hurt people’s feelings, the teachers would say*
* December 25th is just a ‘Holiday’.*
*Yet the shoppers were ready with cash, checks and credit*
*Pushing folks down to the floor just to get it!*
*CDs from Madonna, an X BOX, an I-pod*
*Something was changing, something quite odd! *
*Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanzaa*
*In hopes to sell books by Franken & Fonda.*
*As Targets were hanging their trees upside down*
* At Lowe’s the word Christmas – was no where to be found.*
*At K-Mart and Staples and Penny’s and Sears*
*You won’t hear the word Christmas; it won’t touch your ears.*
*Inclusive, sensitive, Di-ver-is-ty*
*Are words that were used to intimidate me.*
*Now20Daschle, Now Darden, Now Sharpton, Wolf Blitzen*
*On Boxer, on Rather, on Kerry, on Clinton!*
*At the top of the Senate, there arose such a clatter*
*To eliminate Jesus, in all public matter.*
*And we spoke not a word, as they took away our faith*
* Forbidden to speak of salvation and grace*
*The true Gift of Christmas was exchanged and discarded*
*The reason for the season, stopped before it started.*
*So as you celebrate ‘Winter Break’ under your ‘Dream Tree’*
*Sipping your Starbucks, listen to me.*
*Choose your words carefully, choose what you say*
*Shout MERRY CHRISTMAS ,
Not Happy Holiday!*

Please, all Christians join together and
Wish everyone you meet during the
Holidays a
MERRY CHRISTMAS
Christ is ‘ The Reason ‘ for the Christ-mas Season!

Stephen Harper and Stephane Dion on the Hill in Ottawa

December 3, 2008

A real and unnecessary mess indeed.

The opposition never really stood up to Harper – not until their own financial well being was at stake and then all of sudden it became a hue and cry about democracy – or is it hypocrisy?

I’m no fan of Harper but he did win the election.

There is no party operating within Canada that has the interest of Canada as their primary goal.

The left is taking their cues from the UN via the phony global warming scam.

Both the left, through Martin, and the right though Harper, and without voter input continue to negotiate the NAU.

Act local – think global needs to be put in the trash bin. That mantra is designed to enrich the corporations and remove worker rights.

How has the global economy worked out?

Not so good if you look at where we are now.

I am Canadian – I’m not a global.

Act Local – Think Local

There is nothing we can’t grow , design or build in this country. If people wish to trade with us fine and if not that’s fine to.

This country needs to start building our own cars and ever other thing we need.

UN agreements – mostly signed with Liberals in power will restrict the use of our own resources ie: electricity and water.

There is a move to sell off our commons ie: roads, bridges, schools and hospitals.

Commons that were paid for by the tax dollars of hard working Canadians.

Follow the life of Maurice Strong and you will see the evil that thrives in the halls of Canadian Power.

Every Canadian should read the Green Agenda and Cloak of Green. Both can be found via my site or google.

You will never look at your govt. or the green movement with uncritical eyes again.

We are moving with great speed towards fascism or corporatism, which ever you prefer.

A large broom is what is needed on the Hill.
Sweep it clean of traitors and start again.
