H1N1 Vaccine Ingredients and Warnings

October 26, 2009

Editor: Before you or your family role up your sleeve you need to understand what is in the vaccine. Is this the junk you want in your body? Don’t blindly follow what the authorities say.

They’ve been wrong many times in the past.

Why are the vaccine companies being shielded by govt. in the event you or a loved one suffers damage from the vaccine?

It’s your responsibility to educate yourself

Wind Turbine Conference in Owen Sound and Walkerton

September 26, 2009

Editor:

Plan to attend one or both meetings and listen to the Propaganda from various Ministries as they attempt to explain the lies that the wind industry is built upon.

Come and listen to Dr. Copes who Hazel Lynn (Medical Officer of Health) describes as a world- renown expert in the field.

A search of google turns up no information connecting Dr. Copes to any information about wind turbines and health.

I have called and left a message for Dr. Copes to provide me with information that would verify that he is an expert on wind turbines and health.

No Reply yet.

I will update when and if I get the information requested.

The entire wind industry is based on smoke and mirrors just like any other well delivered con.

Your community is at risk, as is your health, if you are unlucky enough to end up living near an Industrial Wind Turbine

Note- Shortly after posting this I received an interesting e-mail from a reader regarding Dr. Copes

This Doctor who will be giving the presentation Dr. Ray Copes is nothing more than a Industrialists’ hack who backs up Industry that is accused of pollution….he’s an expert on lead in lipstick…………he’s an expert on noxious fumes from smokestacks………………..all in favour of the Industry who pollutes…..so in essence he is perfect for Smitherman and company who hire nothing but the best “lap dogs” in their smoke and mirrors propaganda run on TV and publicly called “information meetings”……………..every single WCO member down that way should welcome this idiot to their township on behalf of Hazel Lynn who is touting that he is an “expert”…………..he is an expert in BS!

read his press comments form B.C. http://www.zoominfo.com/Search/ReferencesView.aspx?PersonID=68973884&lastName=Copes&firstName=Ray&searchSource=page&page=2

Please take the time to attend these meetings.


Grey Bruce
by Ken Hashizume

The health effects from wind turbines will be discussed at an upcoming forum.

The Grey Bruce Health Unit is organizing two conferences — one on October 1st in Owen Sound and another at Walkerton’s Jubilee Hall on October 6th.

Medical Officer of Health Doctor Hazel Lynn says they will have Ray Copes — Head of the environmental division of the Ontario Agency for Health Protection and Promotion — to speak at the conferences.

She says Copes held a similar position in British Columbia where he collected evidence on wind turbines and is a world-renown expert in that field.

She says Copes is a medical doctor with an environmental background in public health.

Doctor Lynn says they will also have someone from the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure at the conference.

She says they will talk about the Certificates of Approval that are required before construction and the government’s Green Energy Act.

Doctor Lynn says the forum will be set up where they will be a panel of experts delivering the information on their topic.

She says it won’t be a debate — rather an information session for municipal officials and residents.

Doctor Lynn says the health unit has no position on the wind turbine debate.

She says some people are more sensitive to environmental impacts than others.

She says she is not in a position to say whether wind turbines cause health problems because there hasn’t been a lot of scientific evidence that can prove it.

H1N1 Flu Vaccine Protest

September 13, 2009

Editor:

I shot this video On Sept. 11 2009 for Doug Schapira of the Owen Sound Free Press as he took his concerns about the H1N1 Flu virus and vaccine to the doors of the Public Health office in Grey-Bruce-Owen Sound.

To date the Director, Dr. Hazel Lynn, refuses to answer questions raised by the public.

This is the same Health Office that refused to send someone to document health problems reported by people living near wind turbines.

It appears our health officials are more interested in appeasing industry than looking out for the health of citizens.

Hard questions need to be asked of our health officials and we must demand answers to those questions.

Doctor calls for health study

Doctor calls for health studies on windmill farms

By JOHN MINER, SUN MEDIA

When London surgeon Robert McMurtry decided to build a house, he wanted to go green — geothermal heating, solar panels for hot water and a wind turbine for electricity.

But when he started reading about wind turbines, the former dean of medicine at the University of Western Ontario said he had a change of heart.

“I thought, ‘Holy Toledo, there are some issues here.’ ”

Dozens of wind turbines have already been built or proposed in Southwestern Ontario, as Queen’s Park tries to wean Ontario off dirty coal-fired electricity plants and reduce its reliance on nuclear power.

McMurtry is calling for health studies into the wind turbine farms popping up across Ontario with backing by the provincial government. With towers nearly 100 metres tall, and blades half that long, the turbines can be an imposing sight, even from afar.


fctAdTag(“bigbox”,MyGenericTagVar,1);
<!– –>

“At minimum, they should be doing a survey of people around wind farms and getting a sense of how many people are complaining of problems,” he said.

“If there is enough evidence, they should mount a formal epidemiological study,” McMurtry said.

In the U.S. and Western Europe especially, where wind farms are more advanced than in Canada, complaints abound about the low-frequency sound the giant windmills generate.

In Canada, Ontario is one of the only provinces with any regulations governing wind farms, requiring a noise-impact assessment for areas up to 1,000 metres from the wind turbine.

McMurtry is concerned about the health complaints he’s heard from people living near wind farms, including sleep disturbance from the noise of the giant turbine blades.

“Once you have sleep disturbance for a few days, you aren’t going to be feeling well,” he said.

Last week, the province announced it’s backing six new wind farm projects, including three in Chatham-Kent, that are expected to create 558 jobs.

Total investment in the new farms is expected to reach $1.32 billion.

McMurtry, who has taken his concerns to Ontario Energy Minister George Smitherman, said it’s going to be an uphill battle to convince people to look hard at the health implications because turbines have become closely associated with green energy.

“It has got an iconic, symbolic status that really carries a lot of weight and there is a very powerful, worldwide lobby group behind it,” he said.

McMurtry said turbines smaller than the ones being installed may be better than the monsters now going up.

“Harness the wind safely. Let’s look at other alternatives. There are better, smarter options,” he added.

Monica Elmes, of the Chatham-Kent Wind Action Group, an organization opposed to the wind farms, said the turbines will be an unreliable, intermittent source of electricity and a waste of taxpayers’ money.

“All Ontario residents are truly the losers in this scam,” Elmes said in an e-mail.

Are turbines making some people sick?

November 9, 2008

Editor:

The problems with wind turbines being placed near homes has been known for years.

The Govt of Ontario is well aware of the problems, because they have volumes of information on the subject, but have chosen to ignore it. They
are guilty of putting the health of residents of Ontario at risk.

A fact that can no longer be disputed.

Dr. Ian Gemmill, Kingston’s medical officer of health, said – “that though there are concerns about low-level noise, appearance and stress caused by the turbines, research has suggested that those effects don’t cause long-term health impacts after people are no longer living near wind farms”.

Are turbines making some people sick?

James Cowan, National Post Published: Friday, November 07, 2008

Opponents of wind farm developments allege turbines are not just ugly and inefficient, they can also make you sick. There are growing reports of people who live near wind turbines complaining of headaches, nausea, sleeplessness and other symptoms. Sufferers contend the illness is caused by low frequency noise and vibrations released by the turbines, along with the flickering shadows cast when the sunlight is cast through the blades. While wind power proponents contend there is conclusive evidence turbines are safe, Kingston’s Medical Officer of Health was concerned enough to say developments need to be monitored. Here, we present four views on so-called “wind turbine syndrome.” — James Cowan, National Post

The Sufferer

“Our home was 423 metres from the nearest turbine. When we first heard about the project, we were trying to be green — we always recycled more than we threw in the trash — so I thought it was great. I was in favour of them, even as they were doing the construction around us. But my health did deteriorate immediately when the turbines were on . . . I had ringing in my ears, it felt like there was something crawling in my ears — I said ‘what in earth is going on?’ And then the shadowing effect when the sun is behind the blade, it was so bad, I just thought the top was going to blow off the top of my head. But we went camping in July and it cleared up — I didn’t have a headache, I wasn’t going to bathroom as frequently, I had none of the itchy ears. I came back and it immediately started again. When the blades were facing the house, I couldn’t concentrate at all, I couldn’t sleep, my body would ache . . . so finally I started to clue in that something had to be going on with the turbines. I could tell before I got out of bed, just based on how I felt, whether they were running.”

— Helen Fraser, former neighbour of Melancthon Wind Project in Ontario

Poor Advice Has Led To Noisy Wind Farms Sited Too Close To Houses

August 28, 2008

I’m not so sure it was poor advise – more like a collaboration between govt. and business interests that have allowed this to happen.

I say this because any and all attempts to inform the govt. of Ont. about the realities of the siting of wind turbines has been dismissed as Nimby-ism.

Many families have been negatively affected by the standards in Ont.

Every wind farm in Southern Ont. has caused problems for  people forced to live near the turbines.

If the govt. wasn’t in bed with industry you would expect some action by the govt. of behalf of those affected.

To date we have been met with wholesale denial of any problems, even though people suffer from health problems that did not exist before the arrival of the turbines. People don’t move out of their homes without reason.

How pervasive is the denial process?

I called Mr. Chris Munn, director of Grey-Bruce health services, in Owen Sound Ont. I told Mr. Munn  there was a cluster of families living in a wind farm, in his area, that were suffering medical problems.

I asked Mr. Munn to send a medical team to visit and document the health issues of these people. At the very least I asked that he send someone with a note pad and tape recorder to document the situation.

Mr. Munn then launched into what sounded like a commercial for the wind industry.

He told me that the problems the people said they were having were all in their minds. ( something you want to hear from the director of medical services)

When I questioned him about what he just said, he told be that he had been talking to Glen Estill, owner of Sky Power, and Glen told him that the turbines cause no problems – some people don’t like wind turbines.

Well Mr. Munn, I told you I would print what you said and I hope you read this. Maybe when you read what you said, it will make you pause to take a good look in the mirror.

I respectfully ask you, once again, to send someone down to the wind farm to assess the problems these people are suffering.

Barring that, you may want to consider resigning your post and consider taking a job with the wind industry.

Poor advice has led to noisy wind farms sited too close to houses

The reason why the United Kingdom has an inadequate health and safety standard for wind farms, which has resulted in people being made ill and even forced to abandon their homes because of noise, is now clear.

Staff from power firms have been working in Government departments, advising them on matters such as appropriate noise levels and the departments have accepted their advice (The Journal, August 28).

The result is ETSU-R-97, a document planners and the industry are obligated to follow. It allows residents of houses to be constantly subjected to in excess of 40db of noise (my door bell emits 80db) and has resulted in wind turbines being sited too close to houses.

Two questions come to mind. What gives politicians the right to inflict noise pollution on citizens of this country? And why are politicians and engineers deemed to be the correct persons to determine safe noise levels?

The French National Academy of Medicine has called for a halt to large scale wind developments within 1500m of houses, because the sounds emitted by the blades constitute a permanent risk for persons exposed to them.

However, reports of people being distressed by noise with separation distances greater than 1500m have been confirmed by research carried out by the University of Groningen in the Netherlands and the US National Wind Co-ordinating Committee.

Safe setbacks: How far should wind turbines be from homes?

August 23, 2008

Let’s start with what one manufacturer considers to be safe for its workers. The safety regulations for the Vestas V90, with a 300-ft rotor span and a total height of 410 feet, tell operators and technicians to stay 1,300 feet from an operating turbine — over 3 times its total height — unless absolutely necessary.

That already is a much greater distance than many regulations currently require as a minimum distance between wind turbines and homes, and it is concerned only with safety, not with noise or visual intrusion.

In February 2008, a 10-year-old Vestas turbine with a total height of less than 200 feet broke apart in a storm. Large pieces of the blades flew as far as 500 meters (1,640 feet).

The Fuhrländer turbine planned for Barrington, R.I., is 328 feet tall with a rotor diameter of 77 meters, or just over 250 feet (sweeping more than an acre of vertical air space). According to one news report, the manufacturer recommends a setback of 1,500 feet, over 4.5 times the total height. In Wisconsin, where towns can regulate utility zoning for health and safety concerns, ordinances generally specify a setback of one-half mile (2,640 ft) to residences and workplaces.

But that may just be enough to protect the turbines from each other, not to adequately protect the peace and health of neighbors.

When part of an array, turbines should be at least 10 rotor diameters apart to avoid turbulence from each other. In the case of the proposed 77-meter rotor span in Barrington, that would be 770 meters, or 2,525 feet. For the Gamesa G87, that’s 2,850 feet; for the Vestas V90, 2,950 feet — well over half a mile.

Jane and Julian Davis, whose home is 930 m (3,050 ft) from the Deeping St. Nicholas wind energy facility in England, have been forced by the noise to rent another place in which to sleep. In July 2008 they were granted a 14% council tax reduction in recognition of their loss. It appears in this case that the combination of several turbines creates a manifold greater disturbance.

Since the human ear (not to mention the sensory systems of other animals or the internal organs of bats, which, it is now emerging, are crushed by the air pressure) is more sensitive than a giant industrial machine, doubling that would be a reasonable precaution (at least for the human neighbors — it still doesn’t help wildlife).

Sound experts Rick James and George Kamperman recommend a 1 km (3,280 ft) distance in rural areas.

Both the French Academy of Medicine and the U.K. Noise Association recommend a minimum of one mile (or 1.5 km) between giant wind turbines and homes. Trempealeau County in Wisconsin implemented such a setback. National Wind Watch likewise advocates a minimum one-mile setback.

Wind Farms – Lake Huron Ontario – Video

May 31, 2008

Editor:

Tried to post a comment on this video by the Windsor Star but it wouldn’t accept comments so I had to bring it here.

These comments will make sense, or not, after you view the video.

The reporter in the video says the wind will power 440,00 homes. According to the ISO – for planning purposes they are rated at 10% of capacity or 44,00 homes. Big difference.

Ernie Marshall, in the blue coveralls, and his wife have moved. Ernie was suffering from health problems he didn’t have before the arrival of the turbines. Ernie says his health is slowly returning and his doctor is happy with his progress since he moved. Both Ernie and his wife say that after two years of living near the turbines,they are finally enjoying uninterrupted sleep. The neighbors Ernie said goodbye to are still suffering from noise, stray voltage and flicker, not to mention the flashing lights on top of the turbines every night.

The gentleman in the brown coveralls has moved as well. After the problems at the Epcor site he didn’t want to be around when the Enbridge site was completed. He is well aware of the problems created by wind turbines and feared he might not find a buyer after the turbines arrived.

Neither of these people wanted to move, but felt they had no choice.

Every wind farm in southern Ont. has impacted families in a negative way.

Bob Simpson, the gentleman from Enbridge says they will respond quickly to solve any problems. Unless Mr. Simpson plans on moving the turbines farther away from peoples homes there is nothing he or his company can do. For the next twenty years people will suffer the consequences of bad planning and greed.

Mr. Simpson mentions reducing emissions. Nowhere on the planet can I find any evidence of emission reductions from the use of wind turbines.

Germany has more wind turbines than anywhere else. They are in the process of building 20 plus coal plants. I would say their emissions are about to take a big jump. Wind doesn’t seem to have done Germany much good.

The number of fossil fuel plants closed as a direct use of wind energy – o – Zero – none – zip

Wind energy has doubled in Ont. Does that mean we are twice as stupid as we should be.

When the govt. the industry and the media are all saying how great wind energy is,it’s hard to accept the reality that is the wind industry – and that’s exactly what they are counting on.

A quote from a person living at the Suncor wind farm Ripley. When asked how it was living near the turbines. “I’ll tell you how it is, our life is shit since the wind farm came.”

Ripley has a 700 meter setback, The Enbridge and Epcor wind farms have a 450 meter setback.

A video of the Ripley wind farm can be found under videos at top of page.

Do some research on your own. Theres nothing on TV anyway.

Is wind power a lot of hot air?

May 30, 2008

Editor:
This is part of a response I wrote to a comment from Mark Aug.2007

Mark
Let me try this. I just checked the energy output numbers for the province of Ontario. At 10am today the 400 MW of wind in Ont. were producing 4MW or 1% of their plated capacity. If you think wind is going to power Ontario or anywhere else you are dreaming. Most wind farms are to backed up by natural gas plants. Expensive and great emitters of ground level ozone which in fact is more dangerous than the emissions from the coal plants.
Maybe this will help you understand.
France is powered by 80% nukes 10% fossil fuel and 10% hydro. France is slated for 5000 windmills. You can’t use nukes to back up wind and they only have 10% hydro power. Wind has to have a back up of at least 80%. In order to do this the only option is to add more fossil fuels. So in order for France to use wind they must in fact add to the pollution levels not decrease them.

Now some information from France
April 2008

.

Is wind power a lot of hot air?

President of the environmental company, Fédération Environnement Durable, Jean-Louis Butré, has labelled the drive for wind energy “a strategic error on a national scale.” He says wind energy actually increases demands on thermal energy reserves.

He said: “Wind turbines only work 20% of the time so we need to have back-up energy – in France this comes from thermal energy and natural gas, in Germany it comes from burning fossil fuels.

“So the more we rely on wind energy, the more we are actually producing gases which contribute to the ozone effect.”

Mr Butré believes the cost of wind energy is prohibitive.

“Wind energy costs two to three times the price of other forms of electricity, which would result in people paying an extra €200 or €300 for each electricity bill.

The homes of residents living near a turbine may also be worth 30% less.

“France is a country which relies on tourists yet turbines are ruining our landscape.”

Germany, currently the leader in wind energy and considering a ban on nuclear energy, has just ordered the construction of more than 20 power stations using coal as an energy source, as a back-up energy supply.

Expats Kath and Ian Haines moved to the peaceful hamlet of Peusicot near Genouillé (Poitou-Charentes) last year, unaware that a wind park with eight 135m turbines was to be built just 650m from their door.

Now they fear their house will be worth a third of the original price and worry how the turbines will affect their health.

Mr Haines said: “Everyone knew about the turbines but no one – not the mayor, estate agent or members of a local group campaigning against the turbines, said anything until two weeks after we had moved in. It was like a bombshell – we felt devastated.

“We are worried about possible nervous complaints as a result of vibrations from the turbines, and they are supposed to be noisy at night.

“We have been told it will take two years to set up the turbines and we are worried about how large machines and road traffic will fit down the tiny lane.

“We expect our property to drop by at least one third in value. The turbines will affect wildlife, bird migration, everything.”

Wind generated electricity is more expensive to produce, costing between €40 and €55 per megawatt hour compared to coal and gas which cost €30 and €45 per megawatt hour to produce.

The cheapest energy form is nuclear, costing just €26 to produce.

Bill C 51-Notice of a protest rally on in Richmond

May 21, 2008

Editor
Although our main purpose is to expose the wind industry – this is very important. If you can attend do and if you know someone near Richmond please alert them.

.

*Notice of a protest rally on Bill C 51  in Richmond*
On *Wednesday. May 21*, Health Canada is holding a “stakeholders’
meeting” in *Richmond*, behind closed doors,  on  the New Health
Bill –  Bill C 51.
*We need to show Health Canada how we feel!*
*We need* as many *people *as can make it *to do street picketing*.
We need *your help* – there is strength in numbers ( and as many
people as possible who feel passionately about the draconian
injustices and assaults on health contained in this Bill)    **
*Bring good signs* – we are hoping for some TV news coverage!     When:  *May 21, 2008    –   _ 3 pm_ – 5 pm
*    Where:  *Best Western* Richmond Hotel & Convention Centre
*7551 Westminster Highway*,
Richmond, BC
Even though this is a rather late notice, (since this takes
place this Wednesday) please pass this message on to as many of
your local contacts as possible.  Thank you!
Hope to see you there!

*If you know that you can make it, please let Kurt know at   604
327-5453

*
He has taken the initiative to organize this protest rally because
he is so very concerned about Bill C 51.  I hope you are too.

“When we give government the power to make medical decisions for
us, _ we, in essence, accept that the state owns our bodies.”_       ~U.S.Representative Ron Paul, MD

What does Bill C 51 do?  It makes it a crime for you to take care of
your health in any  manner  – *unless granted specific government
permission*.  At the present time, 60 -70 % of Natural Health
Product applications have been rejected and have failed to receive
that permission.  *The punishments for non-compliance are those
found in total dictatorships – they are draconian and onerous beyond
description.*
Bill C 51 sells your health decisions to government bagmen,
which are in bed with Big Pharma .  It destroys your right to make
your own health choices, your right to practice self-sufficiency and
independence – and it removes your access to Natural Health Products
that have been shown to be safe for centuries.         *Take back jurisdiction over your own body* – It is your God-given
birthright – protect it!.  It does not belong to the government, and certainly not to industry. (Big Pharma).
